Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, is blessed with some amazing architecture. The buildings in the centrally located civic centre, such as the City Hall and the National Museum of Wales, are particularly magnificent. The buildings are built of Portland stone and are important examples Edwardian Baroque style. The statues ordaining the buildings are particularly eye-catching, with angels warding off evil from the edges of the roof. The buildings are perfect for photography. But don’t blink!
Later today I am travelling to the Czech Republic on business to a wonderfully historic town called Vysoke Myto. It is around 2 hours drive from Prague and is dominated by one large bus manufacturing company, but if you walk around the old town there are so many undiscovered wonders. The buildings are old and they are still painted in the same soft pastel colours that they always have been. This is one photograph of several that I took on my one my visits last year and more can be seen by clicking on the link below.
