    The local people calls it 'Lawang Sewu' which means 'Thousand Doors'
    It was builded in early year 1903 during Dutch-Indies colonnial time in Semarang, Indonesia. The Building had been used several times for many purposes such as Dutch-Governor office and dungeons for local dissidents The building were also became a silent witness of several epic battle between Indonesians and Japanese force occupation in +1945. The building also believed to be haunted since it had the reputation of mystical power left in the building until now because of its past.
    I love the architechture, 'though it gives me the creepy feeling when I entered the dungeon areas .

    That reminds me of the cathedral in Winchester. It did have a Thiefish feeling, now that I think of it. I probably would have noticed it right away in nighttime...

    Here's one I snapped of it:

    I don't quite like, how your photo has that ''outer glow'' effect on the Cathedral. You've probably photoshopped it while messing with sky?

    I couldn't get my camera phone out fast enough, but we were in the car and a pickup truck with a trailer passed next to us. In the trailer were several large carpet sample displays with some nice plush looking carpet pieces. Then I noticed the carpet brand: Garrett's Pride! I can just see Garrett pedalling nice soft -quiet- carpet to the better homes. Then paying them a visit!

    The Flying Lady of Rolls-Royce
    The Flying Lady was a modified version of The Spirit of Ecstasy figurine to make it bow a little further in order to protect the bonnet.

    I saw this small bag of incense cones yesterday and thought that the artwork somehow reminded me of the early TDP/TMA artworks. It's a Christmas thing of course, but the way the tower was painted looked familiar.

    These strongly (especially 5-2 and 7-3,7-4) stongly remind me of Glyphs. Not actualy Glyphs, but they do have a general Glyph-ishness about them
    They are prime knots from knot theory.

    My wife hates this because it's so creepy.

    I LOVE this because it's so creepy.



    Hey, did anyone notice the "Hypnotized Chicken" article in that website jtr7 posted? I must confess, this was a favorite pastime down on the farm...

    It almost fits my screen heh.
    It has too much nowadays atmosphere then Thief atmosphere.
    If somebody could fix that, would be nice.

    That is a beautiful picture, but the limit for pictures posted here is 800 pixels wide. I have resized it for you. Next time, please check your size before posting or use a thumbnail.

    Thanks!

    OK, so here's my first post in this great thread...

    My intention is to concentrate on real life photos taken by me personally. Most of them will be from my homeland, Slovakia (mainly the eastern regions).

    NOTE : RW ("real world") - informs about where the photo was actually taken (for all of you that would want to ask)



    First things first :

    Introducing the various parts, districts and quarters of The City



    Auldale Plaza

    (RW : Main square, Bratislava - the old Gothic town hall can be seen in the middle)




    Walled-off section of Old Quarter

    (RW : Inner side of the city walls in the medieval core of Levoča)




    Stonemarket from TDS or the marketplace from "Ambush !" in TMA

    (RW : Dominican Square in Old Town, Košice - the Dominican church, the oldest one in the city, visible in the background)






    The Clocktower in Stonemarket

    (RW : an actual Gothic belltower, Urban's Tower on the main street in Košice - one of the oldest high buildings in the city, constructed at the turn of the 13th/14th century)




    Pavelock Prison

    (RW : Formerly two patrician city houses from the 14th and 15th century on Mill street in Košice. Later merged into one building, that served as a penitentiary since the 17th century, known by the name "Mikluš's prison", after a notorious local hangman. Nowadays, it houses a section of the local museum, that focuses solely on the city's history.)

    The Opera House

    (RW : Slovak National Theatre, Bratislava - the older building of the SNT traditionally houses most of the opera plays)




    The Wieldstrom Museum...

    (RW : Eastslovakian Museum, historical section, Marathon Square, Košice)




    ...and it's displays... I see some nice Precusor pottery worth 125 and 250 on those shelves...


    And now... the streets of The City...




    (RW : street at night in the medieval core of Levoča)






    (RW : streets of the old town in Košice - notice the "Mechanist seminary" (the local Calvinist church) and a "Hammerite Cathedral" (St. Elisabeth's Cathedral), both in the distance)






    One of the many gates in The City...

    (RW : The Košice Gate of the medieval core of Levoča - the best preserved of the surviving medieval gates in the old town)
