Photographer's Note

One evening in Krakow, in a cobbled street called Sinnna (thanks to Andrzej Urbaniec for giving me the correct name), looking towards the main square - Rynek Glowny - a woman sits by her pretzel barrow, waiting for customers as they walk home from work at the end of a hot day. As so often happens, especially while composing a back-lit shot, I didn't notice all the details, in this case her arm around her lover or husband, until I walked past. The pretzel stalls and barrows of Krakow are everywhere, open all hours. The pretzels cheap and delicious. I bought a large one for 1 zloty (37 US cents, 26 Euro cents). It's virtually impossible to buy something pleasurable at all for such a humble price in western Europe.

At the end of the lane one can just see the famous Drapers' Hall in the centre of the 13th century square, the largest medieval square in Europe.
