A Walk, Just a Little Walk 
Down beside where the waters flow, down by the banks of the... Vltava. And uphill from there, too. A handful of shots from the city in the grip of frost.
Frosty Prague

A Grab Bag of Prague Pics

Some Like It Weird 
Some cities boast monstrous ships. Some adore oranges. Some show you what to expect of marriage. Some like it big (fancy a 20-metre match to light your fire?), some like it small (don’t step on dwarfs!). Here is some evidence of the wild creativity of European sculptors.

Christmas is All Around
Alright, not yet but a visit to a family-run business specialized on producing hand-made Christmas balls makes one feel like that. A photo-report from a Christmas decoration kingdom, where they play with fire, perform chemical experiments, create glittery art and mess with such non-Christmassy things as hippos and phone booths...

From a piece of glass to a Christmas ball

Around Europe
From hot summer to colourful autumn. From the grachts of Holland to the coves of the Black Sea. From tiny dwarfs to gigantic Lenins. A harvest of photos from this year’s travels abroad.

And as a kind of a P.S. a set from home sweet home - what happens when one sets out to enjoy warm sun and brightly coloured autumn leaves and ends up in a chilly fairy forest instead...

Enchanted forest

Music, Music, Music
And fun shows and colourful lights and all that jazz. In stuffy clubs as well as under the open starry sky. The Greenland Whalefishers (a bunch of Norwegian folk-punkers, fronted by Shane MacGowan's twin, at least judging by his voice) take the cake for the most amusing spectacle on stage. The Tannahill Weavers for the most outstanding music. And Manran for sweet Gaidhlig (though apart from that they were good fun too)
