Strolling The Charles Bridge

The Charles Bridge is one of the most famous landmarks of Prague. We were in Prague for five days and The Charles Bridge was always crowded. I am sure early in the morning it is not as crowded and less crowded on week days. However it is like the Ponte Vecchio of Praha (Prague) and if you were there you wouldn’t miss it. It is a pedestrian bridge and connects the old city with the Prague Castle area.

When returning from Prague I posted a scenic view of the bridge from the Castle. However strolling along the bridge is a unique experience. There are 30 statues mounted to the balustrade of Charles Bridge in Prague. They form two rows, one on each side. It is crowded with people musicians and vendors.

Doors of Prague #3

Traveling through Europe I became facinated with some of the ancient doorways of the cities. One of the first I ever published was in March of 2012. It was a doorway in Bruges that I photographed in the 1990″s while I was there on business.

The doorways of Prague (Praha) in the Czech Republic were some of the best I have ever seen. I published a few in 2016 but have since done some editing so that you can appreciate the detail and variety of these ancient doorways.

Smithsonian Candidate #4…Praha, CZE

I am thinking of entering the Smithsonian Photo Contest even though I have zero chance of winning. I say that not to denigrate my ability as a photographer, but each category already has over 50,000 entries. Sure a lot of them are crap but some, well follow the link above and see for yourself. Also you can only submit work from 1/1/2016 until the present and all works with people must have a model release.

If you are familiar with any of my work (e.g. Moment and Souls) you probably realize I don’t have a lot of model releases.

Fortunately I do have some images that may qualify in other categories and will be publishing some here to see if you feel they quality. Please comment and let me know your thoughts. This was taken from one of the gardens at Prague Castle of the city below

Moment#2–Shabbat Shalom

Last week Dale Schmitt and I opened our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This image was taken in Prague in The Czech Republic outside the one remaining active synagogue. Before the war there were 11 synagogues and the Jewish population was around 300,000, today there are about 4000 Jews remaining and they are allowed to practice their faith without reprisals for the first since the 5th century.

Autumn in Praha

In so many ways, Praha (Prague) reminds me of Pittsburgh my hometown. There is a large Czech population in Pittsburgh and our ethic foods and culture has a definite Czech, Polish and German connection. The hills around the Czech Capitol are also reminiscent of the hills around Pittsburgh. The autumn colors make me think of home.

Taken in October 2016 from the park surrounding Prague Castle.
