Photo du Jour: Strolling Silhouette – Prague


Prague Couple Strolling

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.

Where in the World?

  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?

    • Thank you so much, Virginia! We just successfully renewed our passports, so hopefully a visit to Canada will be in order. :) Hope your week is off to a super start!

  2. This is lovely. I think it’s better for not having the other figure. It makes one wonder and I love an image that suggests a story.

    • 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:

    • Karolyne, thanks for sharing the fun tale from Prague — it is indeed a magical city. And, I’m pleased to say that I was finally able to go there with my special someone.
