Writing with Light

A First look at Prague

“Prague never lets you go… this dear little mother has sharp claws.” -Franz Kafka

You’re probably wondering why I would post this image from Prague before posting a more iconic view of the old city, the clock tower or the Charles Bridge, Well that’s a good question.

I spent 2 days in Prague, which is by no means is enough time to take in all that this incredible city has to offer. The architecture, Romanesque; Baroque; Renaissance; Gothic, Art Nouveau; Modernist (just to name a few styles) is absolutely incredible to behold. Don’t worry I do have some of those iconic shots and they’re coming but there are always little gems hiding in plain sight that we sometimes miss.

Walking through the old city even small pedestrian walkways such as the one below holds so much architectural interest its hard not to spend time and just take it all in.

  1. Nice. I like too see “different”shots apart from the usual touristy shots.

  9. I would far rather see classy artistic images like this than pictures of ‘iconic’ buildings. What impresses me most is the way you have handled the tonal range in this image, Edith.
