Fotoeins Friday: “Touha”, Praha Letná

“Touha”.

A longing or deep desire.

“Sehnsucht.”

The picture above is a west-facing view of the Vltava (Moldau) river as it winds through the Czech Republic’s capital city of Prague whose historic centre on both sides of the river is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I am here in Praha, with as much love I can spare for the city.

I made the photo above on 5 December 2008 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/6-sec, f/5.6, ISO200, and 55mm focal length (88mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-92x.

    What a great picture. Prague has so many places just screaming to be captured on a picture! I still have to work through all the pics I took during our short trip there. Even though I was pretty lazy with the camera (as I have to handle also a video camera) I took around 800-900 pictures in 3 days.

      Thanks, Timo! The city is always photogenic, even under overcast skies. But under clear skies, it’s even more beautiful, and at night, the city takes on yet another kind of magical quality. Those are the reasons why I returned to Prague a few weeks ago at the beginning of November. I understand something about taking hundreds and hundreds of photos in a few short days. 🙂

      Hallo, Lisa. Du muss nach Prag! 😉 There is an incredible number of opportunities to photograph: from the hills, on the bridges next to the river, and in the streets. I think you would love the city as much as I do; I view Prague as “Freiluft-Museum.”
