Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. I’ve finally arrived in Prague, and despite my jet lag, my fascination with the city increases with every corner that I turn. I’ve always marveled at the photos I’ve seen, but until seeing Prague for myself I’ve never had a true appreciation for the beauty of this city. What a gem, and I have barely touched the surface! This week I’m sharing a couple of my first impressions, taken through my lens.

Old Town — Where are all the people? They don’t arrive until 10am, and then they arrive in droves!
The beautiful Estates Theater in Old Town; Home to the premier of Mozart’s Giovanni; which I will see on Saturday night!
Through the arches in Old Town, and before the crowds arrived!
Street sculpture in Old Town; to grab your imagination…
Bata Shoes in Old Town… I find out yesterday that Mr. Bata was a Czech. I bought more than a few pairs of Bata Shoes when I was growing up in Halifax. The business is still going strong!
And finally… 21 Crosses; a memorial to the priests who were tossed from windows by the protestants. This grisly practice is known as defenestration. I’d call it bad karma!
This is just a small sampling of the shots I took yesterday. There will be many more to come as my feet take me along the many cobblestones of Prague…stay tuned!
