This morning I was very much focused on the black clouds above me, but I've just realised that Prague offers a good selection of opportunities. It's often called the city of 100 spires and most of them are black.
There is even a tower called the Black Tower.
Not very black, I know, but that's its name. Built in 1135, it's the oldest building in Prague. It wasn't until the big castle fire in the 16th century that it became known as the Black Tower but the name seems to have stuck.
I was intrigued to spot a black chandelier for sale in one of the shops selling Bohemian crystal.
It seems almost a contradiction in styles - black glass tells me modern, but the style of the chandelier is very traditional. Besides, I don't think you'd get too many of them to the pound, judging by the price tag.
However, returning to the spires, they are everywhere you look, even among the modern chimney pots and satellite dishes.
But the most well known black spires are those on St Vitus Cathedral.
Because of where it is, inside the castle complex, it's really quite hard to get a close view of the cathedral.
But at a distance it's almost always there on the horizon.
To return briefly to the black clouds, they eventually disappeared but not before soaking me thoroughly. There comes a time in the procedure of being soaked when you realise it's just not worth trying to stay dry any longer. You may just as well walk right through the puddles and hope to dry off later. It was that bad.
