Little horse in the park


Original YT playout date: 18 May 2008
Duration: 14:17

Some of the playgrounds in Warsaw are called “Ogrod Jordanowski” after this guy Jordanowski who worked out that swings and roundabouts and stuff for kids rather than just have a park with plants in it.

We have lift off


Original YT playout date: 17 May 2008
Duration: 6:57

Taking off in a Boeing 737 on a day with reasonable visibility, I reconed there was a good chance to see my flat from the air, and so I did. Actually we were going to Madrid but I didn’t make this part of the Madrid series as it had a different focus.

Train of thought and hooligan caught


Original YT playout date: 11 May 2008
Duration: 12:48

My friends and I take a train to Krakow and enjoy the scenery going down. You’ll see a lot of apple and pear trees in blossom. Whilst looking at a palace we are selling I witness a person behaving in a hooliganistic manner. Despite his arm-flamenco, he is not as fast at hiding his face as my camera is at catching it, and so he is immortalised for his vandalistic deed forever. I didn’t manage to get his mate who pushed him over the hedge in the first place, though, unfortunately…

Aquarium in Warsaw Airport


Original YT playout date: 10 May 2008
Duration: 7:23

This is a new aquarium in the “Business Shark” bar in the departures area of the new terminal at Warsaw airport.

They have a snail problem – nothing a few clown loaches couldn’t solve, but then they might have to kiss their shrimps goodbye too…

What’s up, ducks?

They are obviously still very much in love, but sulking. Each is hoping the other will turn around first. They miss each other, although they are only two feet apart, it may as well be another continent.

Returning from Tczew over local roads


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 15:12

Driving on roads which nowadays are not used much as the motorways are in place. Malbork is the seat of the templars or Teutonic Knights in Poland, or Prussia, as it then was.

A Night in Wrocław


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 15:48

“Which is pretty much what it says it is. This is a bit different because I’m still getting used to the new editing software I bought. The images are too dark, but I don’t get a lot of leeway there – I film when I’ve got free time, and that usually tends to be the evening hours.

Anyway, enjoy the atmosphere of this stroll, meal and also drive in night-time Wroclaw.”

Rogue Trader


Original playout date: 4 April 2008
Duration: 2:39

I received a private message saying it would be a good idea if I gave the sozzled street trader in the Tczew video a separate clip, so that he’d be seen by more than those few willing to watch through nearly a quarter of an hour film about some remote Polish town.

Tczew (1 of 2)


Original playout date: 29 March 2008
Duration: 14:59

I like Tczew, it’s the old German city of Dirschau, mention in Gunter Grass’s Tin Drum. I have spent quite a few nice times there.

I wasn’t sure if people would like my portrayal style as in Grudziadz another Northern Polish town with a German background, I got a lot of flack, but actualy the likes are 30 on this with only 2 dislikes.

The GPS machine seems to be taking me on a right wild goose chase, into someone’s yard instead of the centre of the town. Those were not exactly the days of google maps and the precision we now have, and that’s bad enough at times.
