Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. While the bridges and old city buildings are gorgeous, I am most intrigued by the subway stations. The station designs are clinical, severe and strangely melancholy.
It is no surprise that the Prague Metro is relatively new, only forty five years old and almost entirely Russian built.
For the the CB&W challenge, I show two photos with vanishing point perspectives.
And because I like them, I include two more with absolutely no point at all.
In my hometown it is illegal to smoke in public places: indoors, outdoors and anywhere near a sports field or playground.

This picture is not possible.

About this post:
