Masz Ochotę – here you have Ochota!

Playout date: 2 April 2007
Duration: 8:08

I hope you enjoy the gallery part, showcasing photos of mine taken on a Spring walk like a hanami, with Sophie, feeding the birds in Szczesliwicki Park. Here you have Ochota in a nutshell, the part of Warsaw where we live, its charming mix of the drab post-socialist, the timeless park, and the new developments.

I make the observation of how it is a pity that I can’t capture on video the heady, powerful smell of the cherry blossoms. Videos are good for vision and audio, but do very little to convey the other three senses. Maybe that time wil come…

And isn’t little Sophie cute at 7 years of age? I can’t get over what a sweet little thing she was.
