typical Polish city

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 23 December 2008 in Cityscape & Urban.

this is how a typical "modern" suburbs look in Łódź and in many other Polish cities... the communist years have left this region with the legacy of a "concrete slab", which is essentially how these blocks were constructed...

the slabs would never quite fit together properly, which resulted in uneven floors, issues with piping, chunks of wall falling off and other exciting surprises...

these days these buildings are being foam insulated from the outside and an effort is being made for them to look somewhat more colourful as they were all usually built from grey slabs or painted white (but the white would turn grey anyway withing a matter of months)...

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas with a lot of joy and happiness!!!
