Today I am sharing some of my photos from Chanovice, the village I had assigned to August in my photo project for this year. I selected 35 photos again, as in the previous months.

Chanovice has just about 720 inhabitants but the first written record that mentions the village dates back to the 14th century.

There are several interesting objects in the village. A chateau, whose building has been used as an elementary school and a museum of folk craft; a former farmyard that has been rebuilt and nowadays includes an information centre and a gallery; a Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross; an observation tower; and an open-air museum with exhibition of historical architecture where several old local buildings have been transported and preserved.

Let me remind you that the following selection of my photos is not meant to be any representation of the village, it just reflects the views and details that captured my attention.

  1. You’ve outdone yourself again, Petra. The view is beautiful from the village, and the architecture here is enhanced by little artistic touches. Some of my favorites…for no other reason than that they are eye pleasing to me…are #17, the picnic table; #18, the wheel, and #19, the window with all the interesting objects in it. But my very favorite is #27, the wheel with the white weeds that look like little sparkling stars.

  2. Thanks for sharing another sweet area…my absolute favorite is #16 – just love that one for the color and the symmetry. But I also agree with Linda – #27 absolutely caught my eye with those little bits of sparkle!

  3. What a beautiful old town! I love how all the images work together. My favorite is the first photo since it gives me a sense of place. I also like the abstraction of the wheel and grasses in #27. A winner with us all!
