Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle – the Charles Bridge of Prague on a rainy night


Here’s my post for this weeks challenge, Twinkle.  While stars twinkle, so do the lights on the Charles Bridge in Prague.  We were out on this dreary, rainy night but there weren’t many other people.  That gave us the opportunity to catch this twinkling scene including the reflections off the cobblestone surface of the bridge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular


I’m a little late getting to this week’s challenge so I’ll post three different photos to illustrate angularity.  The first is a close-up of a rooftop in Heidelberg, Germany.  I liked the different angles of the rooftop dormers when added to the perspective angularity of the roof itself as it sloped away from my viewpoint.  I also liked the contrast between the angular black dormers and the puffy dark clouds that were building.

The second photo is a reflection of an old gothic building in the decidedly modern windows of a bank.  The combination of angles and curves caught my eye during an early morning walk (in Wurzburg I think).

The last photo is from Prague on a rainy night.  The photo captures the angles and architecture of the fortress on the hill, the angles and lights of the Charles Bridge, and the foreground of angled pier posts and supports.  There is also another, less apparent angle where there is a water break and falls in the river.  It was a beautiful night and I was glad to be able to catch this image.

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.
