Fotoeins Friday: Praha’s Old Town, Týn silhouettes at dawn

In the quiet time before sunrise, there are only a few people scattered about Old Town Square in Prague. Some are delivering stock to the stores ringing the square. Others are on their last legs after a late night of drinking, while others are, like me, up and about in the relative darkness of dawn to enjoy the cool still morning air in anticipation of another hot summer day. Facing east, the skyline is dominated by the twin spires of the Týn Church (Týnský chrám). This entire site is part of the larger historic city centre that’s been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.

I made the photo above on 28 July 2013 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi) camera, EF-S 18-55 IS II zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/125s, f/8, ISO100, 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as

    Dude, take your luverly wife to Praha! Truth told, however, with a family, that requires a little more care. As much as I love Praha because its Old Town on both sides of the Vltava (Moldau) river is a UNESCO Welterbe and an “open air museum”, I feel there aren’t as many “brick and mortar” museums as the city should have. However, you may find a different story with a little more research, especially in ways to keep children happy, too. On another note, I still feel I’d like to go back to Sachsen to do more exploring there 🙂
