 I took Domík for a walk. It was a long walk. He played, rang, sang, threw stones. It is our summer beach. There was nobody this time of the year. It is so pretty! Just a few fishermen around. Fall no longer seems melancholic to me. Cold and little rainy, who would regret it? Our cottage just stands there, waiting.

These empty pupae appeared after construction workers had pulled down plaster from the house. The pupae are made of the same matter as the plaster. At least part of it. So they are basically cement. They look great. They say the insect is some kind of wasp. I have no idea. The pupae are about 2 cm long each.

Country, city

Domík is in the camp! It has been long already and it is only a third day. I need to write him every day, the kids are expecting a postcard eagerly every day. I am thinking that I need to write him something more sophisticated than what I did and how I miss him. Something more metaphysical. I guess, for kids, it would be writing made up stories, a sort of fairy-tales, about his plushy toys, maybe... I am probably going to spend my days at work elaborating letters for my kid to the camp. Thus I will enjoy my days in the office.

A doodle, skirt and vase

I saw a skirt like that on somebody in a crowd at Masarykovo train station for 5 seconds and spent good time trying to remember it and figure out how to make it. I can imagine making it out of various pieces of fabrics and I hope my conviction lasts. The sweater is just a doodle, it would go well with the skirt. On certain occasions. The vase is mine and beatiful.

More America

Lexington in Kentucky is a nice old city. I am surprised there are not more tourists. I am surprised there are not more tourists in the whole country, not counting NYC. Maybe it is better like that, look at Prague, what we have left...

P.S. The last two pics: 1. a postcard of a city that I forgot which, 2. somewhere

New York

New York was good. I saw it with different eyes than the last (and first) time. I could also see more of it than before and the little guy was with us this time. Some of the pictures are from Brooklyn - Red Hook, the others from Manhattan and Coney Island. Also from Metropolitan Museum of Art and Brooklyn Museum of Art.

The alive place

It was so easy to take pictures in this church, everywhere I turned there was a scene ready to snap. The aesthetics of the run down was appealing to me. The run down and a sort of mish mash, pieces deposited at places randomly, things looked on the go. The church has been decaying, waiting to be fixed. It is full of treasures and I got carried away by the atmosphere. The cobwebs, flaking plaster, stuff being moved around, it is all part of it. It is alive.
