Krakow (2)

Krakow (2), 2005 (Nikon, digital)

What I like about this scene is that it looks like a dream-view or a frozen image from a handicapped mind. What’s the strange place the door leads to, and why somebody had put a drawing of a bike on a wall (you cannot see it but as a background of that drawing is a weird text about existential importance of a bike)? There is “Alchemy” small board and a number to it (?). Sculptures are those of angels and demons – all in one… I almost got myself inside but a gaze of people there made me abandon my curiosity…

This place exists at the corner of so-called Jewish Market in the former Jewish district of Krakow – Kazimierz (the memorable part of the Shindler’s List of the ghetto being established and liquidated was executed in that district).
