Nikt nie przechodzi obojętnie obok tego pomnika. Dzisiaj 70 rocznica Powstania Warszawskiego – zapraszam na spacer szlakiem tablic pamiątkowych Tchorka umieszczonych w cieniu Kościoła Niepokalanego Poczęcia Najświętszej Maryi Panny – kościół w Warszawie przy pl. Narutowicza. Na kolejnych zdjęciach przedstawiam tablice upamiętniające miejsca egzekucji i sam kościół z jego wystrojem nawiązującym do walk powstańczych w Warszawie na Ochocie. Po 70 latach nadal stawiamy sobie pytanie, czy warto było? Odpowiedzi są różne, ale zawsze budzą emocje! Serdecznie pozdrawiam. Jan

Fantastic photo har_marjara@yahoo.ca Liked...

A monument to remember those who laid down their lives for the country.

A pedestrian street and a high-end shopping area close to the Parliament hill.

This building is far from empty. It had been renting doace to artists, studios, musicians, woodworkers, and other tenants for over two decades! It is actually a very lively ediface. Long live the Crane.

The Railway lines, which were built in the second half of the nineteenth century, ran across the canal, but they could not be raised too high to let the ships pass underneath them. So they had to have a rotating mechanism so that they would not block the path of the ships through the canal.

Construction began as far back as 1883 under Antoni Gaudi, Catalonia's gift to the world of architecture, and it will go on until 2026. What you see in this photo taken in 2005 is the Nativity façade which consists of two twin-towers between which will be the main entrance to the church. The four towers on the left are the Apostle Towers. The main central towers on top of the altar (Mary Tower) and the nave (Jesus Tower) will be the last structures to be erected.

The photo was taken on the 20th of March, 2011, and the blast took place on the 28th of April. The café, a little more upscale than the single-floor ones that you can see on the right of the photo, was frequented by foreign tourists from Europe and North America. Luckily, it wasn't the height of the tourist season. The bomb, remotely detonated, killed 17 and wounded many more.

The border is made up of typical Greek geometrical lines and each of the square depicts a different wild animal. The mosaic, like most of other mosaics, covers the entire floor of a room in a house, which apparently belonged to some man of means, who happened to be fascinated by wild life.

In this representation of Diana (equivalent of the Greek deity Artemis)the goddess is shown bathing. Acteon, a hunter, sees her with no clothes on and she transforms him into a deer. Acteon's own dogs tear him up.
