Visiting Prague – Very photo heavy post!

Hello Ladies and Gents, long time no…..type/read I guess would be the right term.

Anyway a couple of weeks ago I traveled to Prague for a long weekend holiday with my parents. Okay I know it’s not exactly rock ‘n’ roll for a mid-20s guy to be holidaying with his parents, but you know what I actually had a really good time.  Prague, despite now having a bit of a reputation for being a Stag Party haven, is a beautiful and culturally interesting place.  Now I’m not a travel blogger, I barely managed to pass my GCSEs in Geography/History, so I won’t go into too much detail on the places we visited.  As I knew the city was going to be a mixture of cultures and historical influences I seized the opportunity to dig out my old Olympus E-500 and brush up on my photography skills.  Now, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I used to continually rely on my cameras ‘Scene’ function to best capture a shot; so for this trip I decided to do everything on Manual Mode!

So without further ado, here’s my photography tour round Prague!

Astronomical Clocktower and Old Town Square

St. Charles’ Bridge, St. Barbaras Cathedral

And who can forget the

Range of Beer

So I hope you’ve enjoyed my little whistle-stop tour around the city of Prague. Of course there is lots more to see than I have shown you here, this was just to give you a snapshot of what a weekend in Prague can have in store.  Before I bid you all farewell there is just one more attraction that I consciously did not include in this post.  In the city of Kutna Hora lies a burial chamber known as the Sedlec Ossuary; this fascinating and yet macabre site was one of the places I specifically wanted to visit. Why not include it then?

Here’s were the warning comes in:

If you are squeamish or of a nervous disposition then my upcoming post will not be for you!

The Sedlec Ossuary is a religious site where the remains of 40,000 people are kept. The interesting point, but also the point which may upset some readers, is how these remains are displayed. I have taken some photos of the site, and you can find that post <<here>> (link will be added when the post goes live).

I look forward to hearing what you guys and gals think of some of my photography skills, or lack there of. Any criticism is welcome.

Catch you later,

Iain
