This is some Grand Hotel in Prague’s Wenceslas Square. The hotel is not yet grand again (but they’re busy) and the square is not square at all. It’s actually more like a long boulevard. There used to be a horse market in the Middle Ages, and before buying a horse, you could try riding it there. At least that’s what I read. Perfectly explains the shape though 🙂

Again we are in a foyer, only this time we don’t look up, this time we look at the floor from a very, very low point of view. Someone has left dusty footprints and in the last light of the sun I imagine seeing gold dust.

“Gold Dust” by Tori Amos is the Song of the Day. Hear it on YouTube.

Well, this title is a little far fetched 🙂

This is kind of a sunshade/curtain across a window in a beach bar. Behind it, what you can’t properly see, but what gives additional color, is a pool, a tree and some real sunshades.
The Song of the Day is “Shades of Ruinous Blue” by Cousteau. Enjoy it on YouTube.

Modern architecture is mostly utilitarian, but frequently in big foyers you see artistically arranged lighting. Here it is one clever mobile made of lots of big but fairly normal cylindrical lamps, in different colors, hung at different heights. And it works 🙂

The Song of the Day is Joni Mitchell’s “The Circle Game”, interpreted by Zee Avi. Hear it on YouTube.
