Weekly Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

Charles Bridge @ Prague (Czech Republic)

The Charles Bridge is almost always filled with tourists, street artists, musicians, buskers and vendors. I generally dislike people appearing in my photos and therefore came back during dawn, which has a very different mood. It would be ideal if it was foggier.

The photo below is a view of the bridge and its pedestrians (a few hours later when the city wakes up). Prague castle is in the background. Post-processing in black and white is unlikely to appeal to most people, but I don’t have to please everyone and I like how it turns out 🙂 I was overlooking from the Old Town Bridge Tower. Most towers or observation decks are usually crowded and expensive. Agree? But not this one! It is relatively empty and cheap. I could even setup my tripod without bothering anyone. Very strange for such a cool vantage point … probably Prague’s best kept secret?
