While visiting Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic, where most of the buildings are brightly colored, we did come upon this cobble stone alley where most everything was white. Looking through the arch had a dramatic effect.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    not much to tell really Phil, it is a large mansion house, only saw one room , had very decorative moulding around the ceiling, now a nursing home. Someone told me the original owner brought it back from Italy xx
