Don Giovanni

One of the highlights of our trip to Prague was seeing the opera, Don Giovanni performed at the National Marionette Theatre.  It was such a treat to see the show and the clever way the puppet masters were included into the production. The repertory of the Prague-based National Marionette Theatre includes Don Giovanni , The Magic Flute or The Magic Theatre of the Baroque World – Orfeo ed Euridice.  I highly recommend making time to see a show if you are ever in the Stare Mesto area of Prague.

iPhone Photography: Lucky Shot

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.

Color iPhone Photography

Well it looks like I’m on an iPhone photography kick for now.  Why fight it?  It’s so convinient in travels to just whip out the iPhone and snap away.  I often take an iPhone version of shots even when shooting with My Canon 5D Mark II.  But soon I will welcome a new camera to my gear and there will be some adventures to be had.  Dreaming of the Fuji X-t1 that is on it’s way to me as I write.  In the mean time, for now and for the sake of some color, a shot from the Erie County Fair, 2013.
