2019-07-04 STREETS OF PRAGUE AERIAL

Prague is a historical city in the heart of Europe. From the Zizkov TV tower, you have a great view and the opportunity to photograph the city from above. Especially where it is difficult and usually forbidden to fly in densely populated areas with drones. Thus, a good substitute.

2019-06-05 THE BEGIN OF SOMETHING BIG

I wasn’t aware that there is an Apple Museum in the city of Prague. So I was surprised and attended the exhibition. You can see the first Apple computer prototype designed by Steve Wozniak, the photo above shows it. And the complete history of all Macs until the newest iPhone are exhibited. Even the Apple Newton and the first Apple laser printer are there. For me one of Prague’s biggest attractions.

2019-05-24 GUARDIANS STANDING TIGHT

By |2019-05-23T19:46:29+01:00May 24th, 2019|Prague|

The main entry to Prague Castle with the security guards reminded me of London where the guardians are not allowed to move or show any emotions. The best situation for a photographer, you have enough time for the compositions without the apprehension that the scene will change.

2019-05-10 CITY OF PRAGUE WITH JET IN THE SKY

By |2019-05-08T19:59:52+01:00May 10th, 2019|Prague|

Uber took us to this part of the city; a commendable burger bar was there. After my son Dorian and I had eaten a Portobello burger, we were still looking for a cafe. I then took pictures of this unknown part of the city, which is mostly forgotten by the photographers. I think this combination of the TV tower and modern building a successful mix.

2019-04-13 NIGHT IN PRAGUE

By |2019-04-13T04:39:47+01:00April 13th, 2019|Prague|

My wife stayed in a restaurant while I was on the bridge and shooting with a mini-tripod the hot spot of Prague. The Charles Bridge, the begin of the old town, the Old Town Bridge Tower and the promenade and park beneath the Vltava River, all on one photo and illuminated in good weather. What a lucky day.

2019-03-05 CHARLES BRIDGE IN THE MORNING

By |2019-03-04T19:55:16+01:00March 5th, 2019|Prague|

My son Dorian and I were visiting an Expo in Prague. We took a train-roundtrip which is about 4 hours in one direction between Vienna and Prague. On Sunday morning we had 3 hours spare time to visit the city, the first visit was the Charles Bridge from above. To get a great view, you have to enter the tower which lies on the city side. From there you get the view of the Vltava river, the Charles Bridge and the skyline in the background.

2019-02-22  TOWER WITHIN THE TOWER

By |2019-02-21T19:43:04+01:00February 22nd, 2019|Prague|

One cool model of the Zizkov Television Tower displayed on the viewing area at an altitude of 93 meters. Designed and built in the communist-era it represents a unique jewel, compared to the many television towers with the straight concrete building and dozens of antennas a satellite dishes on the top. The elevator brings you up with 4m/s. My wife Karin and I were there at 11 am, very few people, and we got a broad panoramic view of Prague.

2019-01-21   MODERN BUILDINGS IN PRAGUE

By |2019-01-20T16:56:56+01:00January 21st, 2019|Prague|

My son wanted a burger; therefore we ordered Uber and let bring us to a 4.8 star rated burger bar. It was tiny, only with five tables, but excellent burgers. Afterward, we wanted a coffee. Searching in the area brought us to the building-block on the photo. There we found a Cafe and even could watch football while drinking.

2018-11-25   PHILIPS BUILDING IN PRAGUE

By |2018-11-24T23:08:38+01:00November 25th, 2018|Prague|

After visiting the EVLS Fitness Expo in Prague, it was later in the evening when my son and I arrived at the hotel. I did my hotel-room routine, looking if the window can be opened and watching after possible photo compositions. Here I was lucky; the illuminated Philips-building was worth to take my Sony A7S out of the photo bag and take some night-shots before going to bed.

2018-11-07   VLTAVA RIVER IN PRAGUE

By |2018-11-05T22:17:12+01:00November 7th, 2018|Prague|

The three European “sister-cities” Prague, Budapest and Vienna have much in common. The buildings and architecture look similar. Each city has its river flowing, Prague the Vltava, Budapest, and Vienna the Danube. Some centuries ago, they were all under the empire of the Habsburger.
