Inner-city lockdown

5-km lockdown in Crumlin, Dublin

took my mind back to an old Czech city, Telč

Crumlin: mostly grey, brown & green. Telč, a technicolour dreamscape

Telč, Czech Republic – UNESCO World Heritage Site

a baroque layer cake.. I could think only of Mr Kipling French Fancies from my childhood

Telč, Czech Republic, border of Bohemia and Moravia

and Český Krumlov, a couple of hours away 

has a garret full of old marionettes

Marionette Museum, Latrán č.6, Český Krumlov

like the forgotten attic of a master puppet maker

they swing from the rafters

Telč, southern Czech Republic

Czech stop-motion films, marionettes: I’ve always loved them – unearthly but with a very human quality




two hundred of them hang from the beams of St Jobst Church

in old Český Krumlov, deepest Bohemia

Marionette Museum, St. Jobst Church, Latrán No. 6, Český Krumlov, Czech Republic
