Prague (Praha) at night...

Another day draws to a close in the gorgeous city of Praha. Gold on the tower's figures glint in the setting sun
A chill starts to descend throughout the streets in late September.
Sculptures and people alike feel the darkness starting to descend. Here a modern 'key' sculpture
beckons the adjacent church to join the darkness:
In Old Town Square, jet trailings point the way to evening above the old City Hall
where even the ancient sun dial no longer catches a glimmer of rays even as spectators crowd around every hour to watch and hear:
Let the joyous night festoon and light our souls with brilliance for another day!
Máme vás rádi Praha! (We love you, Prague!)

  1. The key statue, made of keys? lost keys? Lol!! Interesting architecture.

  2. Yes, isn't that amazing! Maybe they were all lost keys, we don't know!
