Stained with Goodness

I always believed that a clean and clear glass is better than one which is stained. But those stained on purpose, what is their significance? I am a bit curious to find the origins and reasons to have stained glass windows in churches. This window belongs to the St. Nicholas Church, at the Old Town Square…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

This is a door handle at the St. Nicholas Church, at the Old Town Square, at Prague, Czech Republic. This past month has been a bit rough on me and has managed to make me more resolute as a human being. It made me re-evaluate my choices and understand people’s perceptions and insinuations. The post…

Music For the Soul

This beautiful organ which is out of public bounds now sits on level one of the St. Nicholas church at Old Town. The church was designed by Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, and was ready in 1735. The chapel is believed to draw its influence by the chapel of St. Louis-des-invalides in Paris. This pipe organ in…

Monumental Bliss!

I seem to be bugging perfect strangers (yes, I am talking about you, my blogging friend!) with my constant rants about my first trip outside my country. But I can’t seem to get over the tourist syndrome I feel for Prague. In the picture, there are several beautiful monuments that describe the scenic beauty of…

Meet Anna

Anna is the first Weimaraner that I have come across. (Yes I am as shocked as you are that I remembered the breed!) She was quite huge, but surprisingly she wasnt scary. She seemed like a friendly dog who was getting bored that she had to sit on her walk. She did seem extremely restless…

Glowing Penguins

Another postcard from Prague. Now being a November-born Scorpio, I love water. OK I can’t swim, but I am fascinated with everything to do with water. I did manage to see these penguins in broad daylight from the Charles Bridge, wondering what they are and what they are meant to represent. A ride under the bridge…

Night Falls on Prague

As you might have figured out by now, I am mesmerized by the absolutely beautiful city of Prague. At every hour of the day, the city holds a different kind of charm and grandeur. In the picture is the National theater, Prague taken during a boat ride on the River Vltava. I sure hope that…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fall

It has been a difficult time in our country for a while now, and the past few months have been plagued by not just natural disasters but also several man-made acts of destruction. While we were away, Russia and Czech Republic also suffered loss young of sporting talents in the ill-fated Moscow air crash that wiped…
