This photo came about quite by accident. I was kicked off the train in the middle of the night, not knowing I needed a visa to enter the Czech Republic. So, I wound up in this Polish border town with time to fill, as it was a weekend followed by a public holiday.
I’m glad that circumstances led me to this this place, and this particular photo. For in it, I see the infinite possibilities of space and time. I see humanity in full bloom, and I see the unique glow of the beloved, now departed, Kodachrome. As I gaze at this photo (seemingly for hours), I am stuck by the thought that I will likely never return to Szewczyk Square.
