In Cesky Krumlov, in the Czech Republic, a number of medieval buildings had murals or sgrafitto pained on their facades. It certainly catches your attention walking through this Worl Heritage Site.

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.

    phil,
    This brings to mind my tours of the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, and Woburn Abby and all the massive paintings, (12′ × 20′ or more), and more midieval armament of every kind you would ever care to see. This is in amazingly good condition, considering exposure to the elements. Gives the tourists what they want!

  • thanks
