You've caught the soul of the park in these photos Paul. Reminds me of some of my best travel pix. I too have a Lady walking some 100 yards in front of me too. My wife and I enjoy our "solo" vacations during the day while I take photos - and meet up later because its raining.

In Dickens study room he had shelves - full of books. Some were old and some new. Some titles were unheard of. Many of the books were "Dummies" and Dickens had invented humorous titles for them.

Many of the books were "Dummies" and Dickens had invented humorous titles for them. So in addition to all those classic novels, Dickens also created the famous "Dummies" series. "Microsoft Office for Dummies", "Writing for Dummies" -- you know the series I'm talking about. Thanks for that little tid-bit Garry!

" The men who learn endurance, are they who call the whole world, brother." Charles Dickens As a young man I was told that this was "the best years of my life" and pursued its promise. Subsequently - my end of year Report Card from the school Head Master contained such quotes "Garry sets himself low standards - which he fails to achieve" But the memories .......

It's a great church! I loved visiting it. If you like astronomy, be sure you visit the grave of Tycho Brahe within the church.

I've been in Prague a few times, and taken a lot of pictures, but I'm blown away by the new scenes and new eye on familiar ones. Really great pictures. As for the Charles Bridge...my best pictures of it are from the river. Once you get on the bridge...well, you can't really see it for the fascinating people scenes!

A great piece! Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe and your post helped me remember exactly why I love visiting it. You've a great eye and the ability to see photographic opportunities -- your images are excellent! Regarding the Charles Bridge, I think the best images of the bridge itself are taken at a distance. But images from the top showing people, the row of saints and vendors are also fun and memorable.

This was my second time in Prague, the first was in summer and I can tell you the city changes completely. In winter it gets more mysterious and fascinating and you can take awesome pictures from the bridge but the best moment is at the sunrise or it will be packed with people. Thanks a lot for your nice words, they're really appreciated!

Thank you very much! I'm still learning though. I have an architectural and geometrical view of the world since this is my educational background but sometimes I get frustrated when I picture the final image in my mind but the lack of technique makes the shot different from what I wanted. But I'm working on it That bridge is stunning from every point of view, to me is more a matter of time, sunrise is the best moment to shoot it.
