Gooseberry Bush

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2016 by Giaskyler

Gooseberries were big part of my childhood. I remember sneaking into my grandmother`s garden and eating them right off the bush. 

They were used for making jelly and kompot (drink we had with Sunday dinner).

I still steal few gooseberries when I see them growing somewhere.

I took these photos when I went with my sister to her in-laws`s house, while in Poland. They have a beautiful garden full of delicious treats that scream “eat me!” So I did eat, a lot, and snapped some photos while doing so.

 

Basilica Of The Visitation, Wambierzyce, Poland

It was a place my mom wanted to see on our trip. She took mass in there, while my sister and I took photos (and later joined her by the end of the mass).

It is a sacred church and ground, worshiped by many.

I found this little piece of information (in English) on the internet:

“The present basilica is located on a hill, where in the twelfth-century, stood a wooden figure of Mary, the Mother of God. According to a chronicle from 1218, the blind Jan from Raszewo (Jan z Raszewa) regained his sight there. After the event, many pilgrims began visiting the area.”

…And they do to this day.

Zugspitze, Part 2

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , , on March 6, 2016 by Giaskyler

My friend and I took a short gondola ride down to see the skiing spot. It was not enough snow to ski that day (it was the beginning of October), but enough to have fun with sleds (for free). It was a fun day. I felt like I am standing on the top of the world. Miles and miles of mountains in front of me wherever I looked. I was reminded, once again, how much I love mountains.
