Prague is, without a doubt, one of my favorite European cities, thanks to its incredible blend of architectural styles, its sweeping views and intriguing history. As a child, I grew up hearing tales of life in 1930s Prague from our dear family friend, Erna, who was also my first piano teacher. Erna’s fascinating tales from 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.
