Some photos from a trip to the Czech Republic last spring of useful things that I found to have their own beauty.
Wooden casks in the kilometers of hand dug cellars under the Pilsner Urquell brewery in Plsen.
Foot Reflexology poster in Prague. I like those kinds of posters anywhere and one night when we wondered I noticed that and had to take a shot. Not the highest photo quality, but still.
Dispenser of bags for collecting dog poop. The bags themselves come with a disposable paper dustpan-like scoop for getting the poop into the paper bags. They generally had humorous drawings of dogs on the dispensers and the bags.
I don't know how much this counts, but it was so darn striking. This is the bark on a tree fallen across the trail at a national park up near the border with Poland. It's useful for the tree, right?
