Leica + Tri-x & Central Europe

It only seemed fitting that I grabbed my favorite camera and the remaining rolls of tri-x from my fridge for the trip. I was lucky enough to stand in front of some pretty amazing history. What was my favorite place? …I’d have to say I felt the strongest connection to Poland.

Hope you enjoy a few frames.
