Fotoeins Friday: Old Town Bubbles (Prague)

Countless visits to the Czech Republic’s capital city mean that there’s a real possibility of getting too much of a good thing, especially where the stretch of “royal mile” between Prague Castle and Old Town Square is concerned. But if there’s one thing I’ve promised to do more is to observe and photograph people in a variety of public settings. On an overcast morning, I push myself towards Old Town Square, and by mid-morning, the square is full of people as expected. The addition of a gentleman blowing soap bubbles for change is a welcome one. If only I can find a visitor taking a picture, “trapped” inside a bubble …

I made the photo above on 6 November 2016 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 zoom, and the following settings: 1/500s, f/8, ISO1000, and 47mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as

    I remember those soap bubbles from my Prague trip and I took a few pictures as well. We had during our first days the luck that the sun was shining so the bubbles looked magical

      Hi and thanks for your comment, Timo. I think a real trick is not only photographing the bubbles, but seeing if there’s anything more that can “fit” within or around those bubbles. 😅
