Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Squares and Angles

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge was very difficult  for me, I was almost going to skip it. I was going through my archives not being able to find something interesting. But then I did it. I found a nice collection of details of the walls of my beloved renaissance town of Český Krumlov. Look at some of my previous blog about the town, it is really worth seeing: Festival of Five Petalled Rose, Colors of South Bohemia or Roads in South Bohemia.

For Squares and Angles I chose the renaissance details of the building walls. Now we call them “envelopes”, but originally they were ment as 2D projection of 3D stone, of which the buildings were built in antique architecture, as you can see at this old original building in Rome at Forum Romanum (left side of the shot).

And here is the collection of squares and angles for you.

    Wonderful walls of Cesky Krumlov! And I love that passage in Trebon. Very cubist looking with that marvelous graffiti. Great work, Katy! -Nina.

    I found it interesting to see so many buildings with the bricks outlines painted on the wall
    . Not just česky Krumlov but also other places like nelahozeves, frydlant (I think)…

      You are right. The envelopes are in any shape, color and style all over renaissance buildings here and castles (not “burgs”) as Nelahozeves and others were mostly built in this style.
