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).

Travel theme: Roads

There were two months without a sign of sun and finally the sun has come to Prague this weekend and now it shines strongly through my window. And I can’t think about any other place but South Bohemia and I hope I will get there asap with my family. Therefore, for Travel Theme: Roads I take you there again, like in my previous post for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Rainbow Colors. South Bohemia has very fresh air, beautiful nature, colorful towns (yes, I wrote about it last time, I am  just full of it…). Look at the roads in woods and fields there.

In the Rainbow post I invited you to take a walk around Golden Canal in Třeboň, here you have a picture how it looks there.

The orientation in the nature is simple here, you just follow the touristic signs.

Another nice walk – combination of city and nature walk is around Vltava river in Český Krumlov, you can also go by boat there.

For another theme Industrial I took you to the tour through breweries, and one of them was Platan (=plane-tree in English) brewery, named after plane-tree alley. This alley leads to the brewery premises, here is the picture of this beautiful place located in town Protivín.
