Walking around Prague

           Prague is a beautiful city with great old architecture. Here are some photos that I took during my visit.

Charles Bridge in Prague

       When I  was in Prague, I visited Charles Bridge. It’s a famous, iconic bridge founded by King Charles IV.  There was a jazz band playing on the bridge and I stopped to watch which was really fun.  It’s also nice to walk around the bridge and see the all of the art and jewelry onContinue reading “Charles Bridge in Prague”

A closer look at flowers

I took macro (close up) photographs of flowers during my trip.  It’s amazing how changing your perspective can really alter the feeling of a photograph and make it more interesting. I really enjoy taking photos of flowers because they look pretty and delicate but possess power and strength.

Children running with tulips

While walking around the Tulip Festival, I noticed some children running through the paths. They were so happy and free. It was such a sweet, innocent and pure moment.

2014 Tulip Festival

  The Tulip Festival in Noordoostpolder, Holland is breathtaking. You are surrounded by so much beauty that it’s surreal and feels like a fairytale. It’s incredible to see all of the  different types of tulips. This was one of my favourite sites in Holland. If you’re visiting during Spring, I recommend stopping by.

Shadows on Brick Wall

I enjoy taking photos of shadows because they are interesting and unique.  I love the shapes and outlines that the shadows create. I saw a brick wall with a tree casting shadows on it. It looked like the tree was growing out of the wall and I thought that this would make an interesting photo.Continue reading “Shadows on Brick Wall”

View through a door

I wanted the focus of this photo to be the view through the bars on the door. I took the shot on a slight angle and converted the image to black & white. I also adjusted the levels for more contrast.

Broken Wooden Fence

I have been taking photographs from a close perspective lately. I saw a broken fence and felt that this would make an interesting photograph. I chose to shoot from a close viewpoint because I wanted the focus of the photo to be the splintered wood. I converted the image to black & white to placeContinue reading “Broken Wooden Fence”
