Some recent storms

What is the default topic in most countries and in most situations? The weather. Studies show that this is the most common theme of conversations to break "awkward" silences, so..... recently there has been some up and down weather, it is quite traditional for us to have these summer storms. This is always a danger for many, especially farmers, it can destroy crops quickly.
As you can see, we were spared. Our first riverside tomato was picked and it was delicious. The funny thing was that the woman told me these were cherry tomatoes when I bought the seedling a few months back.... I am guessing her labels need an update.

That said, back to the weather. We have had some really spetactular day time storms, they have been great fun to watch, but are hard to capture on the ol' camera. It is much easier in the evening when fear of over exposure is lower. So I only have one lightning bolt for you, some pretty clouds and sunsets too. Enjoy.

And this was the other.

A big ring of clouds, there was earlier a rainbow as well, although I didn't capture it so well as it was still raining at the time.

I do think simplicity is one of the greatest forms of photography.
No editing here, this is actually how it looked!

Pop into Łazienki to see the Chinese pavillion
Then celebrate surviving the storms with a world in a glass.

Haha, indeed. Now I need something to fill it up. 32C today... I might need to rehydrate.

My name is Joe Pinzone and I'm casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film Poland and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The expats on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. They must also speak English fluently and can be buyers or renters for their homes. If you'd like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at Looking forward to hearing from you.
