I took some architectural pictures while studying in Prague. The below proof prints were taken the first week I was in Prague; the other three photo students and I followed around our photo professor every day for about eight hours to get a sense of the city and the places we could go. It was also a good way for us to get used to our lenses freezing and familiar with the various small coffee shops we could hide from the cold in. All of these photos were taken when it was between -22 and -20 degrees Fahrenheit.
This was taken in Mala Strana, or Lesser Town. I haven’t been able to find these kinds of textures anywhere in America… yet. This is hands-down my favorite area of Prague (although living in the shadow of the castle was pretty cool).
This was also taken in Mala Strana. I think someone should do a project on the doors of Prague, seriously. My dad jokes about when he came to visit and heard cars driving down these cobblestone streets – it sounds like people have flat tires!
This was taken on the steps of Hradčany, the Prague Castle. I think that this photo summarizes my entire experience in Prague – pretty bleak, but with some really inspiring, beautiful, romantic moments. Even though it was FREEZING.
