For the last two days, Craig and I have been walking everywhere, soaking up all the wonderful sights of Prague. We have fallen into a rhythm now, out at a respectable time in the morning, walk for 2-3 hours, back to the apartment for a homemade roll, then, subject to what we decided on for the evening, out again in the afternoon.

Without wanting to bore you too much, here is a sample of my shots; I particularly liked the Old Jewish Museum. Founded in the early 15th century and closed in 1787, there are around 12,000 crumbling headstones but beneath them are believed to be 100,000 graves, piled in layers because of the lack of space.

There is an abundance of street sculpture in Prague and its always a delight to come across something out of the blue. This was the case with King Kong balls! as I stood there taking photos, so many people walked past, laughing! I'm sure the artist would be happy with the impact his work had.

Two nights ago I took myself off on a walking photography tour with a Prague local. This is the second time I have done this while away and apart from learning more about the city I am in, the local usually knows the best locations for taking the best tourist shot.

Jaroslav and I spent a very enjoyable 3 hours visiting all the popular tourist locations trying to get the perfect night photo. I particularly enjoyed this tour as we went to the Castle and St Vitus cathedral at night, somewhere I wouldn’t have felt going on my own in the dark.

Tomorrow is our last day in Prague and we have decided to get out of town and see a place that I had read about in the newspaper – really pushing Craig out of his comfort zone!!
