Yesterday with a group of fellow photographers from Warsaw we went on a short photo walk. We started near the Warsaw University, then went passed the Warsaw University Library and made a final stop near the Swietokrzyski bridge and the Copernicus Science Centre. You can see the last of these in the photo above. The Copernicus Science Centre is the science museum where you can interact with the exhibited objects thus making simple experiments. Although I've never been inside, I heard some great opinions about it. And as you can see its warm orange lights looked amazing against the cold blues of the sky. As the Copernicus Science Centre is situated on the Vistula River bank I managed to capture some colorful reflections in the same frame.

The photo walk itself was a pretty interesting experience and motivated me to shoot in my home town what I normally avoid. I also managed to capture some shots which aren't typical for my style, eg. a few blue hour shots (as you may know I prefer the golden hour).
