Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past Y2-01
Every time I take a trip no matter how far or close to my home it takes me, I look for traces of the past.
When I pick a destination on the Google map, I am not usually searching for the newest wonder of modern architecture, or high-end hotels and restaurants, but places with charm, indicative of what living used to be.
You will see a number of castles, and even a greater number of ruins on this blog; presented primarily for the Traces of the Past photo challenge (which is a permanent – once in two months’ event incorporated in Thursday’s Special challenge).
While traveling through Slovakia two summers ago, we made a short trip to Poland where I had just enough time to take a few shots of a couple of castles.
A threatening storm made me leave Czorstyn lake in a hurry, but here is one more gem of a castle for my traces of the past photography collection.

If you are interested to learn about the history of Niedzica castle and to see what it looks like on the inside, I suggest you pay Restless Jo a visit.
Now, if you like looking into the past with your camera (it does not have to be architecture; it can be some memorabilia, your childhood memories, or even scans of your family photos, and don’t forget that nature is full of traces of the past too), you are more than welcome to join this challenge. Happy Thursday!
