    I didn't stay here long enough to see if he actually bought anything.

    Now and then for the past four years I have been thinking of showing this photo, maybe entitled "For body and soul", but I never was totally enthusiastic about it. If someone had been browsing the books or someone had been buying an ice-cream it would have been another matter. But a street photo without people is just not to my liking. The strange background is just a decorated tarpaulin covering a building site.

    Houseboats on Dal Lake. These were most likely the homes of local people, not aimed at tourists.

    Zelný trh from another angle. I don't know anything about the monument crowned by the sun, but I am anyway more fascinated by the sculpture sitting on the top floor window sill. Unfortunately I have no information on who made it.

    The Parnas fountain was built between 1690 and 1695 and designed by the Austrian architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. According to Wikipedia it is a symbolic cave encrusted with allegorical figures. Hercules ties up the three-headed dog Cerberus, while inside the cave are three female figures representing the ancient empires of Babylonia, Greece and Persia. On top is the crowned Europe.

    I have to admit that Baroque is not my favorite style in art history.

    It is possible that the woman was posing, but not for me.

    I made very minor changes, just clicked the Auto Smart Fix that made the colours a bit clearer, then added some brightness, finally used the Smart blur to clean the noise from the sky.

    A boy I met somewhere else in the village, probably also a "relative" of mine. The dog was too curious to stay in focus.

    Šv. Onos bažnyčia in Vilnius is an outstanding example of a Gothic brick church and one of the buildings that qualified the entire old centre of Vilnius to be honoured by the UNESCO as a world heritage site.
