Wake Up!

Darren Alff - Krakow Poland GoPro photo

I was planning to go to Auschwitz today, but I simply could not get out of bed this morning. In fact, I didn’t get out of bed until just before 3 PM. Wow!

Yesterday I mentioned that I would try and take a photo of myself every single day this year, so here is my second photo of the year – taken with my GoPro video camera directly across the street from my apartment here in Krakow, Poland. I have less than a week left in Krakow now… and I’m going to miss this place once I’m gone.

Auschwitz… tomorrow!

    I’m interested in an action camera. How do you like your GoPro Hero?

      The GoPro is good for certain shots, but I certainly wouldn’t recommend it as your only camera on a bike tour. It’s just for certain kinds of shots. But for those certain shots… it’s pretty awesome!
