Thank you.
...and the building is tilting, for real. It's called "Dancing House" - located in Prague.

Wonderful capture of a gorgeous subject. Good work, Florin! Makes me want to look up the building on Google.

Now if the city would be kind enough to remove those darn traffic lights. :-)

With warm regards,

Mark H.

Thank you, Mark !
About the Google thing: why don't you travel to Prague, to see many other beautifull (but ... old) buildings ? When I was visiting the town I meet people from Hong Kong, and they were enjoying themselves !
Truth to be told, i'm from Europe, so it's easy for me to speak
Anyway, greetings from Romania, Mark !

Hi Florin,

Thank you for your kind note. Of all the cities in the world that I would like to see, I think Prague is the most beautiful and interesting. When then-President Ronald Reagan appointed Shirley Temple Black as U. S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia, I thought, "That is the greatest gift in the world he could give to anyone!" She and her husband loved Prague and the Czech people and culture, of course. I'm not well enough to travel anymore, but if I could magically teleport, Prague would be the city of my dreams.

I did Google "Dancing House," and it was designed by my favorite architect, Frank Gehry, and his Czech collaborator, Vlado Milunić. Why didn't I guess that? Another masterpiece! There are lots of other photos of "Dancing House" available online, but I like your night shot the best of all, Florin.

With warm regards,

Mark H.
