Prague

In Photography on February 16, 2013 at 6:00 am

Much of my travel has been an excuse to take pictures–or perhaps, I used photography as an excuse to travel. No matter. Prague is one of my favorite cities. I thought I’d break the verbal monotony a bit and share a few shots:

Old Town Bridge Tower, Charles Bridge

  1. Gotta love film. Great shots of a great city. Hope you had a chance to see the Jewish Cemetery. Wonderful place to shoot. Haunting and beautiful.

    • Thanks for stopping by, John. Yeah, the Prague cemetery is quite the venue. I’ve been to the city twice. The first time my wife and I went, shortly after the Iron Curtain came down (so to speak). We wanted the experience before there was a McDonald’s on every corner. A few years ago, I’d gone to Ireland on a photography project and couldn’t resist a forty Euro round trip flight back to Prague. I was there, I think four days, winter, had the city to myself, stayed at a Pension below the Charle’s Bridge. Magic. Pure Magic. Thanks for visiting “…the house…”
