Krakow Event FAN Slideshow

Postby bridger15 » Thu Sep 02, 2010 4:00 pm

Over 200 Leonard Cohen FANS gathered in the historic city of Krakow, Poland on the weekend of Aug 6-8, 2010 to celebrate the genius of this poet, writer, composer and performer. This is a video slideshow of some of the Leonard Cohen FANs with their names, countries and for some, their forum name on the http://www.leonardcohenforum.

In honour of Poland's 2010 celebration of composer Frederick Chopin's 200th birthday, the background music is: Chopin's Polonaise, in C Minor, Op 40, no 2

I ended up snapping over 80 FANS in my wanderings that awesome weekend. But, there were some names missing in my little "administration book" (as Wijbe called it). So a big thank you goes to IrishMar, Lizzytysh and Jarkko for helping me match some of the photos with names and correcting my typos.

Dear Arlene,

That was absolutely gorgeous to watch. So many faces and all friendly. I regret I did not get to meet some of them but it was a few days that will live on long in my memory and now we have your slide show to always go back to when we want to be reminded of those great days and nights

thanks a million


And loved the Chopin soundtrack too

Thanks for that, Tinderella. One question! Why did you include the caption below the photo "Vince is on the right" when i am the only man in the pic. Now, you have given me another complex.

Arlene,

As with Albert's videos, the excellence and care put into your slideshows are greatly appreciated. Such diligence in getting the names on the photos - invaluable! Thank you for giving us non-participants a feel for the personal side of the event.

Warmest regards,
Mary

(P.S. Such a joyful photo of you at 5:12 - lovely.)

Vince ~

Did it occur to you that maybe WE ought to be the ones to emerge from that labeling with a complex!?! ;-)
Vince ~ You were SO THERE 8) , too. I'm sorry that you and Arlene's camera eye never became aligned. WILL you be coming to Madison?? We will make SURE you are included. Thanks, Tinderella, for doing the next best thing.


BEAUTIFUL slideshow, Arlene 8) !!! Excellent! Absolutely excellent!! I love your humour and your asides :lol: and personal thank you's. Lovely variety of photos and comments. I love watching your creativity increase with each successive project. Such a beautiful photo of you at 5:15 :D and, again, later with some gorgeous man :D .

Your use of Chopin is brilliant!!! The drama and emotional import befitting our time there, underscored by one of Poland's own.


Love,
Lizzy
