Rings of Fire in Old Town, Prague

This is the final photograph from my Motherland Tour of the Czech Republic. It is also my favorite photo I captured in this most photogenic of cities. Many thanks to my patient travel partners/family members who put up with my constant stopping and starting for photos as we toured the city and countryside. Special thanks also to my father, who not only brought me to this region when I was a small child, but also flew his (not so young anymore) bones over to Europe to again accompany me to this region, this time with MY small children. His love of travel and adventure is insatiable, and thanks to him it has passed through me to my children. This was an exceptional trip, and we absolutely could not have pulled it off without you, Dad! I love you and hope to travel with you again soon!

Sunrise Over the Charles Bridge, Prague.

Time to wrap up the Motherland Tour with my favorite 2 shots from the journey. Sunrise over The Charles Bridge is my second favorite. This was an interesting shoot..super early, and I was one of about 8 other photographers lined up at this very spot waiting for the perfect capture. It was also a pleasant surprise to see the bridge totally void of all tourists and venders…very peaceful, as was the stroll back to the flat through the empty early morning streets.
