750 Years!

Krakow, Poland  © Doug Hickok

When we were in the Old Town of Krakow a few summers ago, the beautiful and charming city was in a celebratory mood. For good reason too. The city was commemorating the 750th anniversary of its medieval incorporation (and Charlestonians think Charleston is old!) Banners and other decorations were out in glorious display. I chose to show these colorful banners with an iconic landmark of the city in the background, the gothic Basilica of Saint Mary's. Concerts and other live entertainment were held in the city square, including, ironically, a youthful group of break dancers.

Color Notes for those confused by yesterday's post:
The primary colors of light are red, blue and green.
The secondary colors of light are yellow, cyan, and magenta.
("Must know info" for light technicians in the theater.)
The primary colors of pigment are red, blue, and yellow.
The secondary colors of pigment are green, orange, and violet.
("Must know info" for painters.)
