I still have thousands of Australian photos but it seems that you are bored with them, so I get inspirations from the photos of other photos. Yesterday I posted this a photo of Dancing House from Prague after seeing Luciano's one,but then I deleted it quickly and now I chose another one (the inspiration went too far, I'm afraid). Neither Craig, nor Luciano saw it in blue hour. I went there in the evening but it was cloudy winter day so there was no blue sky. Instead, Ginger was nice blue but Fred was pink. (interesting that in different places, even in Poland, the tradition is different. But rather it is pink for girl and blue for boy). I like the skirt of Ginger, and you?
I couldn't decide between different close ups (other in WS).
Dancing House was of course high on my list of "musts" but behind Cerny's controversial works.

What happened? I was looking at this picture (or a very similar one) yesterday and was in the process of writing a critique - and it suddenly disappeared! That picture yesterday had a wonderful "Impressionist" look to it - was it just too much for the moderators and did they remove it? :o(
I've seen Luciano's very recent photograph of this building and this is a completely different interpretation of it - lovely big and bold blocks of colour and a very strong composition too. Despite the sky being bright and a bit "washed out", I think it works very well indeed. And your workshop picture gives us a wider view too.

Do Luciana napisałem, ze to mi przpomina raczej nie tyle tańczące domy co pijane domy - "drunk houses" nawiazując do skojarzenia ze słynnymi "pijanymi latarniami" w Zakopanem. Ładna B&W kompozycja (Blue & White :-)

Who said that we are bored with your australian photos? Me at least would never get bored of them, they are just to good.
But of corse, what you are showing us here is equally interesting. Very appt names for these houses that seem to dance really. Ah, and as modern humans that we are we even can go with a pink Fred and a blue Ginger.
It would be interesting to know more about the intentions of the architect in this unusual houses.
have a great day

A close view upwards on the famous house in Prague, malgo, a very intriguing subject to photo.
Inspite the grey sky aloft, managed a fine blue tone and in good sharpness.
What doe's amazed me on this edifice is the changing colors on diff. days and houres that can be seen on.

This is a very good capture of the famous Dancing House, really up close and personal:-) I like the mix of pink and blue tones and the play of light. In the UK, it is also traditionally pink for a girl and blue for a boy, though I do not believe they have that tradition in France where I live now.

An unusual building for sure. I read that people complained that Gaudi's Pedrera might reduce property values in their area. Of course, no such thing happened, probably the reverse. They just like to criticise anything new and unusual. The red light in the fg contrasts well against the blue tones. The 2 buildings seem made for each other and do appear to be dancing. Prague is on my bucket list for my next trip around Europe. Tfs!

La danseuse a mis sa plus belle robe pour son chevalier servant et je me demande si cette lumière rouge est un signal de ne pas aller trop loin car il y a du monde qui regarde.

W archiwum masz chyba zdjęcia na każdy temat i z bardzo wielu miejsc. Dobrze, ze je pokazujesz. Prage kojarze z innymi kadrami, ale jak widac ciekawy architektonicznie budynek i pora fotografowania sprawiaja ze mamy cos nowego. Może nie do konca wyszlo to super technicznie , ale klimat jest.

Trois intéressantes versions de Ginger et Fred, ma préférence allant peut-être à celle du WS2.
carlo62 (19513) 2013-09-04 23:36
anche se preferisco le foto del ws, devo dere che questa versione è molto più originale e ....moderna.
In effetti colpisce l'attenzione immediatamente, molto è dovuto alla particolare architettura, ma la tua mano l'ha resa ancor più originale.

This is a very interesting and beautiful building, I wish the city planners in Gothenburg would have the courage to build something like this here too. Your processing with blue against white makes this picture quite artistic. I wish you a good trip to France!

Hello dear Malgo,
I didn't know them. Must be after 1991 where it was myu last visit to Prague, once titled as the "Paris of teh East" .
The capture is very nice; specially the red traffic lamp on pale blue background creates a perfect eyecatching point.
TFS and best regards

interesting architecture and original effect with these colors blue and pink, well taken from this pov, well managed.

It reminds me similar dancing house in Sopot. But that twisted building is not so big like this one. I was in Prague but I did not see this amazing construction, unfortunately. perhaps I must come back again )))
