Photo du Jour: Strolling Silhouette – Prague

Prague is, without a doubt, one of my favorite European cities, thanks to its incredible blend of architectural styles, its sweeping views, and its intriguing history.

As a child, our dear family friend and my first piano teacher, Erna, shared fascinating tales of what life was like in Prague in the 1930s. These anecdotes about her homeland made the so-called Golden City come to life.

This image was captured on a late spring trip in 2009. Though I wish I had been quicker on the snap, so that I could’ve captured the man’s full silhouette, I loved how the sun illuminated building #10 on this quiet, cobbled lane.

  1. No I think you got it just right, I might have gone with less of the man, maybe just an arm, taking her around the corner to……………where?

    1. Greetings, Elaine! It is pleasure to connect with you, and thank you for letting me know that you’ve enjoyed peeking at my blog. Since you are so passionate about writing, I think you would enjoy Prague very much. Behind each twisty, cobbled lane lurk so many stories. Prague came alive for me long before I first voyaged there, thanks to my wonderful piano teacher and friend, featured here:
