Today I’m a guest, and I’m warning you: there’ll be many links in here.
I’m a guest @Polish Mama on the Prairie.
I “met” her through Bloggy Moms community more than a few months ago.
She is so devoted to being Polish that surprises even me. I don’t know so much about Polish cooking as she does. I’m not THAT involved in discussion about Polish politics, culture, and Polish history as she is. It amazes me.
She left Poland when she was a little girl, but she never stopped loving this country. Her blog is all about being Polish in America, raising kids in bicultural family, cooking Polish food, talking about Polish history, etc.
Her last two posts were about John Paul II (Polish Pope).
Letter to Heaven: Dear Beloved Polish Pop.
I’m gonna use them to talk about something else in this post.
I’m gonna talk (or showing my pictures) from the event that happened last Sunday in San Francisco.
April 30th John Paul II was beatified.
May 1st, I witnessed a Mass celebrating his beatification in San Francisco. I was a volunteer photographer for this event. Great experience for me as a photographer and in many different ways.
It happened thanks to Caria who is really deep involved in Polish culture here in Bay Area:
SF Krakow Sister Cities Project,
The Polish Arts and Culture Foundation,
Polish Cultural Center of the Pacific
and I shouldn’t forget about my friend who actually thought about me when Caria asked him about some fellows photographers he might now and who would be willing to volunteer for this event.
I’m not totally done with editing my pictures, but I’ll share with what I’ve already done. Hope you like at least few of them 🙂 They are not perfect considering my equipment, but as somebody used to say: it’s not the camera… it’s the photographer… 😉
Tomasz didn’t post his pictures, yet, but I had the chance to see them the same day on Sunday… and they were FANTASTIC!!!
Go to his gallery of amazing photos from last Sunday.
More pictures on my weebly website.
Ok, time to spend a little bit time with my Cranky Pants.
hugs from my corner!
Don’t be shy and let me know what’s hiding in your head!
