Statues, Shop Windows and Doors through a Lens

More Prague - and since I have Hipstamatic on my phone herewith some pictures of:

King Charles right by the Charles Bridge

a statue adorning the bridge - rather a nice clean one - some are very black indeed.

Near the astrological clock on the main square

and just over the Charles Bridge shot from Krusta - the delicious pastry shop from yesterday's post.

Art deco indeed.

Another door - caryatid and mysterious people.

The clerk in the Kafka bookshop.

A shop window with a very old television, reflections and a little antelope skull...

here reflections and old toys...

here glasses and assorted bric-a-brac.

Six swans under the Charles Bridge.

For a post on my other blog about the Czech National Gallery go to


  1. Yes, those are some mysterious people. That old European architecture is always so appealing, perhaps because we don't see much of it over here, at least not where I live. I wonder if "Krusto" means "crust" in English? If so, I like that name for a pastry shop!

  2. Fun look at Prague. So different from our box stores slapped up in a month or so and torn down at the whim of any developer.

  3. Elizabeth, you've sent us some beautiful haziness from Prague. Romantic, oh yes.

    May I place a request...while you are there, whether or not you include them in a blog post, please take some photographs in ordinary grocery shops, chemists, dry know, the quotidien.


  4. awwwww, I like what Frances requested.
    Interesting photo as always.

    cheers, parsnip

  5. I almost don't need to go there now after your comprehensive tour Elizabeth - all here but the atmosphere.

  6. very good images Biff. makes me want to travel more.

  7. Absolutely beautiful photos!! You are so blessed to be able to visit such wonderful parts of this world. The swans are lovely!! : )
