Early Morning Stroll

Morning stroll through Prague.

 

Motherland Tour II/ Czech Republic

 

Very early morning stroller through the empty cobbled streets of Prague. This was a little bonus shot for me that I captured after taking sunrise pictures on the Charles Bridge (check back for them). I think that the leading lines of the white window grates directed straight at the stroller work well to make this simple shot very visually engaging.

Lennon Wall, where “young alcoholics, mentally deranged, sociopathic, and agents of Western capitalism” would come to voice their grievances against communism and oppression during the ’80s. At that time, western music and western symbols were banned in what was then Czechoslovakia.
