27 October "A Ninety Years Long Trip"

By GeorgeRusky
Good Day

For a description reader:

This mini-gallery is a tribute to the place we live in and breathe the air of, something similar to the beautiful lakes depicted on photo canvases of our Scottish photo masters, the magnificent silhouettes of Venice gondolas, or the unforgettable coast line’s of Portugal.

Tomorrow we are celebrating the 90th year of foundation of Czechoslovakia. The First Republic was declared on 28 October 1918.

Cheers to all who clicked and commented on my crop tutorial. We will go on with it in a short while.

Enjoy!

George

Beautiful series of shots George and a great tour of the city from along the river; love the soft pastels of the skies and the lights and reflections as it gets darker

really brilliant set George, a great credit to you. What a wonderful place to live it must be. I always like to see Cities when the lights start going on, it's such a lovely atmosphere. 1-3-4-6-12 are me fav's if any one should ask. But then, I like them all, and I hope to see more of your wonderful home around Christmas time on here George, that would be great!
All the best to you,
