170 years of photography

Today is the 170th anniversary of public photography. In January 1839 Louis Daguerre (French artist and chemist) announced creation of Daguerreotype - type of photograph. This patent was bought by French government and on August 19, 1839 it was given to the whole world as a "gift". Perfect gift:)
We decided to celebrate this day by photographing some old cameras: Zorki (Зоркий), Smena (Смена), Precisa Beier and new one: Fuji.

Swedish Chapel

This is so-called 'Swedish Chapel' ('Kapliczka Szwedzka') from 1771. It is situated near Jagiellonska Street. It commemorates the victory of our town during the Swedish Deluge (Nowy Sacz was the first town in Poland where the Swedes became defeated). The chapel was built in the place where the Swedish soldiers were buried.

Angels/200th post

This stained-glass window (precisely - there are also doors) you can find in some tiny chapel of Nowy Sacz's Basilica. The text on the top of the window ('Królewskie Miasto Nowy Sącz rok założenia 1292') means 'The Royal City of Nowy Sacz established in 1292'.

This is also our 200th post:)

Stop and read

In this 'book' there is written information about the place where it is situated (this particular is next to the 'boulders' in the 'Planty' Park).
In Nowy Sacz you can find such 'infoboards' near the castle as well (and maybe in some other places where we didn't notice them:))
