Two Strangers walking the Streets of Prague

I bet this woman was going to the Christmas market.
This man could have been headed anywhere
By the magic of photography we can jump from California to Prague. I was just thinking how cool it would be if a far away strangers recognized themselves in my pictures. I wonder what the odds of that would be.

  1. I love these shots. Such beautiful colorful buildings. And that cathedral is magnificent. Nice to see that some things are universal - yippee for pizza and beer! Kathy

  6. I love the second shot, the tall, close buildings and the street curving away into its own mystery...

  7. I agree with you about people recognizing themselves... would be interesting. Maybe a little unerving in that someone observed them so closely without them knowing. As much as I do it I am not sure i would want anyone to do it to me, but really not in a position to complain :)

  8. Ah, now I have often wondered that James, if anyone sees them selves in my pics, guess it would give them a shock.
    Love your shots, so much to see.

  9. Hey, that's me over on the left. ;-) (Just kidding).

    Great photos. There is something about the ease of finding one's way around a modern city, but the old cities with roads heading in different directions add to the atmosphere.

  10. That's a question I'm often asking to myself: what if someone see himself on my blog?..But I seldom picture people, .
    Strolling in the streets of Prague..that will be my dream for the week-end!

  11. You should put the license plate numbers to your posts and you might get more visits from people in the photos. Nah, it wouldn´t help much. Anyway, it was fun to walk with you in Praque. Lovely old town.

  12. I am always amused how they park partially up on the curbs of these narrow streets. I love the color of these old buildings...the cathedral is so beautifully framed through that passageway between the buildings...I really am enjoying my walk through Prague this morning.

  15. That's really strange ! when I saw these pictures I thought they were taken in my husband's home town in Italy ! The same small cobble stones covered streets.

  16. The odds maybe slim but you never know; that would be very cool!
    I know I sound like a broken record, but I love the architecture, simply amazing.
    A while back I was looking at some pictures that my husband had taken, in one of the pictures there was a woman blocking the sidewalk taking a picture of a church. I thought it was kind of rude of her to be right in the path of other people, when I looked at it a bit closer, I realized it was me! How embarrassing!

  18. The church seeing in the distance.
    A dark stone pavement.
    It is a scene letting me feel Europe.

    It seems to be totally an entrance to another world.
