The one-word Sunday from Debbie over on Travel with Intent is “multicoloured“. The Lennon Wall in Prague is a constantly changing piece of multicoloured art. If you go two days in a row, it will be completely different from the day before.
Wikipedia says this about it:
The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall is a wall in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles’ songs.
The wall continuously undergoes change and the original portrait of Lennon is long lost under layers of new paint. Even when the wall was repainted by some authorities, on the second day it was again full of poems and flowers. Today, the wall represents a symbol of global ideals such as love and peace.
The wall is absolutely worth a visit if you are ever in Prague. It’s not easy to find as it is tucked away in a small street, but its worth looking for it. If you can avoid all the people taking selfies or having their photos taken in front of it, you are in for a treat, and if like me, you are always searching for everyday delights, then this is one of them! The day we were there in 2017, these masks had been offered as a piece of street art.
This is a collage of shots I did when we visited it in 2015 and you can see it is really different and how it changes: compare the two shots of the door (bottom left above, and top left in the collage below).
Final post of 2017 and Thank You
I’m not much for reflecting on things when I’m meant to, or for setting resolutions for the 1st of January. So there will not be a final post from me for the year apart from this one. But I would like to say “Thank you”.
This has been my first year on WordPress and I have loved getting to know the community better. A massive thank you to everyone who visits my blog on a regular basis, makes a comment or likes a post. Every single response is appreciated.
May your 2018 be filled with wonderful experiences and photo opportunities.
Until next year,
