Photograph: “The Charles Bridge”

The Charles Bridge, on which construction began in 1357, was the only land route across the Vltava river in Prague for centuries. (Antonin Dvorak, whose chamber music composition is featured in the previous post, lived in Prague for much of his life.)

    There’s a great retro quality in this photograph. It looks like it was taken in the early days of photography.

      Gracias! It was taken in the afternoon on a day with few clouds, conditions that unlikely to produce a memorable photo. It’s been photoshopped to within an inch of its life to overcome that problem.

    It’s one of the few bridges I have crossed that is beautiful both up close and viewed from a distance in its larger context.
