A crowded, rainy day in Prague


We were in Prague for a few days following our river cruise.  It is a beautiful city (as you’ll see in upcoming posts) but I thought I’d post a different photo today.  I took this photo on the St. Charles bridge in mid afternoon and in the pouring rain. In looking at the photo, I found the pattern and colors of the umbrellas to be more compelling than the grey background of the Prague skyline so I decided I’d focus my processing on that.  This is much more abstract than what I normally do but thought you might enjoy it anyway.

  4. I actually thought that the first was a painting that you had somehow managed to copy so well. Very nice 🙂

    It looks like a painting from Matisse. Just lovely.

  6. The colorful umbrellas really stand out against the gray sky. I loved the processing on the first photo. It looks like a watercolor.

    • Thanks Jackie – I took the scene knowing the umbrellas would be the centerpiece – the rest was an experiment!
