As night fell over Riga, Latvia, I found myself drawn to the enchanting House of Blackheads. The courtyard was illuminated, casting a warm glow on the intricate details of this historic building. The facade seemed to come alive in the soft light, and I couldn't help but admire the craftsmanship that had stood the test of time. It was a moment of connecting with the past in a city full of stories. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
