I got this shot while preparing to photograph David Cerny’s Man Hanging Out in the Stare Mesto area of Prague with my iPhone. As I was composting the shot, the nun suddenly appeared in the frame. Thank goodness I had my wits about me and somehow knew to press the button at that moment. What a lucky shot. Then again, as the saying goes…
“I’m a Great Believer in Luck. The Harder I Work, the More Luck I Have.”
– A quote attributed to many, including Thomas Jefferson
Man Hanging Out is in the ‘Stare Mesto’, or Old Town, section of Prague and is surrounded by richly detailed buildings, narrow streets, and cobbled plazas. The sculpture is close to Old Town Square and other popular areas in Old Town.

This is a gorgeous shot, Molly!
So true. This is a really memorable photo; congratulations. I was equally lucky with mine with the cyclist just before he vanished from view. (http://wp.me/p3gSod-ZA)
Luck favors the prepared. Nice work.
