Atomium II

Constructed as a key attraction for the 1958 World Fair, it was an amazing engineering and construction achievement. featuring the fastest elevator and longest escalator at that time. It was planned to be dismantled after the fair but it was such a popular feature that it was left standing year on year. However, over the years, very little maintenance was done so it was quite deteriorated until in 2004 it was closed for renovation. It was reopened in 2006 after €26 million worth of renovation.

Charles Bridge at sunset

The famous Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic is a very busy place! I was on it just after dawn but even at that time, there were quite a number of people on it, especially a few Asian couples doing wedding / engagement shoots. Seems like the bridge is a popular spot for that kind of thing, especially with the Prague Castle in the background. And it is also very impressive at sunset, especially from the top of the Old Town Bridge Tower, where this picture was taken.
