This is a photo I took at Sedlec Ossuary in Kutna Hora, Czech Republic on my latest trip to Europe. It’s a chapel that’s decorated entirely in human bones, and it’s been on my bucket list since I first learned of its existence. It houses the bones of over 40,000 people.
I took over 800 photographs on my nearly 2-week long trip, and I have so much to say about the places I’ve visited that I’m not even sure where to start, as it’s been so long since I’ve blogged seriously. (Though, let’s be honest, I’ve never really blogged “seriously.”) I aim to try, though. (As per usual. Also #parentheticalstatementsareawesome)
So this is just a short update, enjoy the creepy photograph. High contrast black and white really brings out the texture of the skulls.
This is the view from the top of the building I live in. I took the picture a while ago (last December) but recently came across it again while going through my camera roll, and I thought I’d share it. I have to say, I love high contrast black and white photos. I should take/edit more pictures like this.
We arrived in London at around 11 am on Sunday morning—after landing, going through border control, collecting our luggage, and taking the Tube to Covent Garden. From there we met up with our AirBNB host (who has been absolutely wonderful) and we got keys to the apartment. After that we explored Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. We ate lunch at a local pub and I ordered a pear cider, which was delicious. Louie had bangers & mash. Then it was back to our AirBNB for a short nap and relaxing before dinner. We chose a random Italian restaurant in the area, Bella Italia, not realizing it’s a chain. Then it was back to our room for sleeping, as we were exhausted from the jetlag.
So I bought a new camera. I’ve been wanting to for a while, but I felt like it was kind of a waste of money and I felt guilty for wanting one, because I technically (or we, as this includes Louie) already own a camera. However, I’m dating a massive camera hog. On every vacation we’ve taken so far, he insists on holding the camera at all times and taking 10 photos of every single thing. Not that this is a bad thing, but it is if we’re sharing a camera and I want to take some photos of my own!
Then there comes the problem when, later, we couldn’t tell which photos were whose since they’re both on the same memory card. Tragedy. (Also, #firstworldproblems, I know.) And I get kind of upset when he edits the photos I took and puts them on his Flickr. Maybe that’s silly, but I’m sure any photog would agree with me. …Right?
