Chleb prądnicki (translated as “Bread from Prądnik, a district of Kraków town, that took its name from the small river) is a very interesting example of food tradition in southern Poland. This bread was first noted as far as in 1421(!) and during the communist times, the production was almost completely terminated and the recipe was lost. A group of bread enthusiasts discovered the recipe in 2004 and since then, this bread is a pure success. You can read more about this bread here, for now in Polish only – I will try to translate this text later.
In regards to the size - 4,5 kg and it is simply massive. Big japanese Deba knife is used for comparison.http://wwojnar.com/2013/12/chleb-pradnicki-traditional-bread-from-southern-poland/
This is one of the most beautiful bike park racks I have ever came across.http://wwojnar.com/2013/11/bike-park-rack-simple-yet-beautiful/
I’ve spotted this sticker on a car parked around the corner at thought that it was pretty funny – then I realised, it was on a stock Toyota Yaris.Original article: http://wwojnar.com/2013/11/vtec-just-kicked-in-yo/
This is a shot from the situation, where you instantly regret the fact that you don’t have a dslr camera with you. Instead, you have to reach for your phone, and as they say, the best camera in the world is the one you have with you. So here we are – in a chase for the atm machine, I got into a mall – and I saw the old man, clearly very tired, who was sitting on the bench in brand new, top of the line shopping mall, with only young, rich people around – some in suits, some with prams worth around fifteen hundred euros, some working in promotion areas. Two completely separated worlds clashed.Original article: http://wwojnar.com/2013/10/stranger-in-the-alien-world/
Wild mushrooms is a local, eastern european delicacy, widely used for cooking and baking. There are literally hundreds of kinds of edible wild mushrooms – this is one of those areas of cuisine that is completely unknown to western Europe and US.
What you see here is a result of three lazy hours spent in the woods in central Poland.Two big baskets of bay boletes (Boletus badius) with one supreme example of penny bun (Boletus edulis). Oh, what a treat. I declare the wild mushrooms season open.http://wwojnar.com/2013/10/wild-mushrooms-season-is-open/
This WRC Rally Poland took place in north east part of Poland in 2009. Enjoy couple of shots I took there – as you can see, the weather was far from being great, but nevertheless it was still a good fun to enjoy the roar of the cars flying by. Mud, gravel, cold, wet and long walks – what more can you ask for.Original article: http://wwojnar.com/2013/10/wrc-rally-poland-2009/

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII MR – I used to drive this car many years ago and I simply loved her. 4 wheels drive, two liter petrol engine with turbo, producing about 300 BHP – it was a pure pleasure to drive her – and I really liked the aggressive look she had. Now I have found the pictures I took of her – and here they are. More pictures of this great car below.

From time to time you see a signs like the one of the picture, stating that apparently “speed kills”. Well, maybe the speed of the light kills, but this wasn’t checked just yet. People behind those signs clearly never went to any sort of school – if they could ever be bothered to do so, they would discover at the physics lessons, that it’s not the speed that might kill you. It’s the rapid change of speed that usually kills people.Original article: http://wwojnar.com/2013/09/speed-kills-what-a-fundamental-misunderstanding/
Have you ever heard of Rando? New social platform without any “social” garbage, like likes and such? Here comes Rando.
Little foreword. I like pictures. I like taking them and posting on the web for others to enjoy. If this isn’t your first visit here or you want to spend on this page more than 15 seconds, you will get the idea. However – I don’t really care, how many people follow me.
And here come the “social” part of it. This blog has a facebook page with some lousy 50 something likes – I don’t care, I do not promote it in any way. Sure, it’s nice when people like my photos, but I can’t be bothered to advertise them nor sell. It’s just for private fun. In general, those who know me know that I do not suffer from sociopathy – but I am tired of Facebook with its followers, pages and the run for likes and comments. Enough is enough – I noted, that I sleep better when I am off facebook.
And here comes Rando, the new, experimental photo sharing social platform that is stripped off any social items. You take picture and send it – and that’s it. You have no control over it, you have no idea where it will go, who will get it. In return, for every photo you send, you will get one. And here is the best part – you can’t “like” it, you can’t follow the person, who sent it, you can’t share it. No likes, no comments, no shares – nothing at all. Just random photos sent to random people, received from totally anonymous random people. Only thing you can check – is the rough location of the place where this photo was taken – like the dot on the tiny map with the outline of the country. Just brilliant. Oh, and the photos are cropped to circle – in general, it’s an odd, funny, new experience. I like it.Original article: http://wwojnar.com/2013/09/i-have-no-friends-and-nobody-likes-me/
