990px Repost part 1/5: African heart to the ball

By Dr3


The WC recap begins.

"I hate the 'effin' World Cup". "I won't blog during the World Cup"..again self-righteously because I hate it; while diligently missing work to watch New Zealand - Slovakia. 

Anyway, for the next couple posts I will advertise for a Polish photography website (that's right, get a translator). While ranging from Salt Collectors to Civil WarsPeter Macura also does a really fantastic job of letting pictures, for once, be the grandiose reporters of football. I love every one of these sets, and thought I would share them. Of course I will hyper-link for all eternity to avoid any miscommunication of credit; you know, language barrier and all. I am not posting them sequentially as they were on his website. I was tempted to simply repost his posts as they were, but Google's English is putrid at best, when he translates polish. Seriously, subscribe, and check him out, whenever you get tired of the narcissism that is internet blogging (why couldn't I just post the pics, or a link?).  

Did I mention that this is the source website?

The site actually has a translator widget, so here is the original post.IN POLISH. 

Enjoy.
