Nice picture and nice idea

Is it your idea that you are going to be the only one who posts pictures in this topic?

In 42 Bob J. challenged others to post pictures too, but that's clearly different.

Anyway I won't post a picture here before you've spoken your mind

Originally my idea was slightly different (please see below, in the quotation box) - to have a thread for me only. But pauljg jumped in with his shots (nothing wrong about that - it is now more open and we will have more fun with it) and so the thread evolved from "MiPr's random shots" into "Post your random shots".

So, there are only a three simple rules that must be fulfilled to post a photo in here:
* The photo you post must be selected from your gallery in a random way (or pseudo-random - if there are some computing purists around ). Use your calculator, or computer to generate some pseudo-random number. Or use dice, or results of your national lottery, or whatever ...

* The first shot selected must be posted, i.e. no cheating is allowed because e.g. "that first photos was so awful",

* No more than one photo per day is allowed.

Of course all are encouraged to comment others work and discuss various aspects of posted photos.

So ... let's see how this will work ...

Recently I decided to move from JAlbum (which I got a bit tired of) to to something more automated: Gallery2. The latter has a nice feature called "random image" - shows just a random shot each time the page is refreshed. Thanks to this I suddenly started discovering my own shots which always have been on my gallery but which I almost have forgotten.

It is a kind refreshing to see your own work from the past. Funny that I can still remember where each shot was taken (a bit harder is to recall "when" ).

Anyway, this is how this thread came to my mind - I'll try to post one photo a day until I'll run out of photos (no worries, there are enough for a few years of such posting ) or you'll curse me. Whichever will come frst

OK, time for the first shot - 'Kostel Svateho Vita' (or 'Saint Vitus Cathedral' if you prefer):
