A frozen pond somewhere in central Czech Republic in between Brno and Prague. It’s a fairly nondescript scene in real life, but I love the starkness of winter and this angular tree against the frozen surface of the pond epitomizes a cold blustery winter. These two image seemed to go together so well, so rather than picking one, I put two up.
Baby sculptures by artist David Černý, Prague, Czech Republic.
This is the Žižkov Television Tower in Prague, Czech Republic. I think these baby sculptures were placed in cities around the world before being permanently displayed on this tower.
The tower itself was built during the communist era fairly close to the city center and breaking the skyline which was undisturbed by new buildings.
In Prague people say that the best view of Prague is from the top of this tower because it’s the only place where you can’t see it!
From a distance (as in, a few miles away) the babies look like insects crawling up and down the building.
I set my tripod on the center of the bridge at dusk to take some long exposures of people walking along the bridge. But I got really lucky with the couple on the left taking a photo of themselves. I had no idea that would happen and their positioning and timing is perfect! I didn’t even notice it at the time as I was busy moving around composing. But once I got back to the computer everything was revealed.
