TITLE: "FOLLOW THE BIRCH"
Birches are one of the most popular and beloved trees in Poland that have very deeply rooted symbolism in Polish culture, literature, history. Their bark has a characteristic white color which, according to tradition, has medicinal properties. In winter when they are bare, exposed, when branches are eagerly awaiting spring they gain even more. The branches along with a twigs form one whole extensive road net which possibly one could mistake for a map if not a powerful trunks that emphasize their true identity.

I am an amateur, yet sensitive observer. My goal is to catch beauty in seemingly ordinary things. Working as a programmer I see beauty in a code I write.. After work I find beauty in nature around me, people's face, moments, in the music. It is extremely difficult to catch those things with a camera - at least for an amateur - but I don't give up and carry on trying!
