Everything is indeed all lined up! Handsome photo! Nice composition. I'm guessing one finds good cafe's along this street?

Bardzo lubię takie zdjęcia 'w linii'
Pięknie odnowione te kamieniczki - no moje ulubione balkony:)
Pozdrawiam serdecznie i życzę słonecznego tygodnia:)

I love to see beautiful façades 'in a row'!

Fantastic to be able to experience Nowy Sacz's Rynek during summer, even if 'only' on a picture.

Warm greetings,
Kacper

Your city is picturesque with it's beautiful building facade.

Piękna ulica! Po prostu śliczna! Myślałem, że takie tylko w KRK można spotkać:)

Jacob said...

Lovely cityscape! I like your definition of "tenement." In many places in the US, "tenement" means a place less than desirable - rundown, old, dirty, etc.

James said...

Great looking street. I would like to take pictures of these buildings.

Ładnie odnowione kamienice.
Choć nie widać dokładnie to wyjątkowo piękna musi być ta pastelowa.
Może następnym razem pokażesz ją z bliska ?
Chyba, że już była prezentowana a ja przegapiłem.
Cóż wtedy moja strata. ;-)

Piękne kolory, perspektywa, detale, balkony, gzymsy, pilastry... Wspaniała architektoniczna całość.
Piękne macie miasto :)

Pozdrawiam :)

A mistake was made somewhere, sometime in Poland translating 'apartment house' as 'tenement' and this is cascading everywhere.
In current English 'tenement' means: a rundown apartment house barely meeting minimal standards.
Tenement Museum in New York show you precisely this kind of houses.
If you put kamienica in a modern online translator like Poltran.com you get exactly apartment-house.
Probably this mistranslation has some past and now obscure political reason. I have seen tenements in Poland, but they are not the beautiful house you are showing us.

@Leif Hagen - there are many cafe's on this street:)
@ Frank de Jol - spróbujemy ją pokazać w najbliższej przyszłości, ale musimy się najpierw wybrać na spacer z aparatem fotograficznym:)
@Vogon Poet - thanks for the explanation!
Thanks for all your comments!

Rzeczywiście, trochę jak poradnik dla malarza w ćwiczeniu perspektywy ;)

And those lamps too! They have me thinking about evening shots! :)

I'm sure I will never move out of my beautiful city NS :) No way :)

Great shot BTW, the view is very familiar for me, but I've never seen it so spectacular...
