Prague / by Hugh Rawson

Towards the end of October, I was lucky enough to have a few days visiting Prague and a vast chunk of my time was spent watching the good burghers of the old medieval town going about their daily business. Fair to say it was fairly well packed with tourists too.

Below are a few shots from this beautiful and largely untouched old city.

 

Cafe Stop. Prague, October 2016.

Luckily turned back at just the right moment to catch this. Love the colours and the fact that she wondered whether I was really taking their picture. Of course I was. How could I not?

 

Crossing. Prague, October 2016.

Waited some time for this. I was really taken by the huge toy vegetables (I think) on this construction site and wanted a picture with the tiny real people captured below. Timing with the tram was less straightforward.

 

Drink Club. Prague, October 2016

Just across the Charles Bridge, these locals sat and watched the tourists buzz by. First rule of drink club...

 

Contemplation. Prague, October 2016.

A snatched opportunity at twilight in Wenceslas Square, saw him but thought I'd missed the opportunity. Love that classic look. And set against the backdrop of the jewellers...

 

Getting down to work. Prague, October 2016.

One of those chance situations when you know it pays to always carry your camera. Really wouldn't fancy that commute.

 

 

Grandmother's Footsteps. Prague, October 2016.

These two seemed to be following their grandmother very carefully and almost discretely - just like the children's playground game.
