word of the week – Pejzaż

May 10, 2017 | word of the week

Pejzaż –  landscape, cityscape

I first came across this word from a Czerwone Gitary song, recorded in 1972, though I only discovered it in the late 90’s – “czarno-biały pejzaż miasta”, singing along to it during a blazing hot summer  in my Ford KA car with the windows wide open (no aircon).   It’s a wonderful word for this time of the month, when suddenly nature is full of youth and abundant greenery. It can also be used to describe a media landscape, pejzaż medialny or a painting depicting an expanse of natural scenery. Lush!

So here’s the song on YouTube if you’d like to hear it again – or for the first time!
