View From Vysehrad South

...and here's a south view from Vysehrad.

Kostel Nejsvetejsiho Srce, Picture 2, Jiriho z Pod…

03 Nov 2007 209
This may be the most originally-designed church in Prague, with its massive transparent clock. It's actually not that old, dating to the 1920s, but it is generally considered one of Prague's lesser-known architectural wonders.

Zizkovska Televizni Vez (Zizkov Television Tower),…

03 Nov 2007 156
This isn't my first-ever shot of the Zizkov Television Tower, I know, but I think it's one of my best. The way I shot it from Jiriho z Podebrad the dwarfed buildings are able to give a sense of its immense size.

Here's a more conventional view of the Zizkovska Televizni Vez.

City Tower, Light Leaks, Pankrac, Prague, CZ, 2007

07 Nov 2007 182
The City Tower in Pankrac sat abandoned from 1989 until this year, when someone finally decided to finish it. It was originally a Communist project from the 1980s, but was never completed and to this day remains under construction, even if its future looks much more bright now. Much more on it has been completed since I took this, and in fact most of the windows have now been installed. I took this photo with my leaky Lomo 135BC, hence the light leak on the upper right.

Cranes, Pankrac, Prague, CZ, 2007

07 Nov 2007 158
This is another random snapshot from Pankrac in Prague. I thought the cranes looked interesting, at least. This whole lot is now heavily under construction after lying empty for all the time that I've lived in Prague, and since I took this a large building is now under construction on the site, with progress at an advanced stage.

Penzion Attractive, Prague, CZ, 2007

07 Nov 2007 146
Penzions are cheap but respectable Czech hotels, Penzion Attractive, appropriately named, I think, being on the eastern embankment of the River Vltava.

Kavka Long-Distance Bus, Hradcanska, Prague, CZ, 2…

08 Nov 2007 199
I took this at the Hradcanska bus/tram/metro station in Prague. The bus is a Karosa, if I'm not mistaken, but instead of working for DPP it works for Kavka, an intercity carrier. I really like the sky in this shot, which is largely the result of a mistake, as I underexposed this shot pretty badly.

Dark Blue Winter, Picture 2, Sidliste Haje, Prague…

08 Nov 2007 242
Here's another underexposed winter shot, this one taken in Sidliste Haje.

Lada 1500 Parked In Sidliste Haje, Prague, CZ, 200…

08 Nov 2007 375
I rarely take car photos anymore, as I hate the car culture, but this is no ordinary automobile, comrade! This is a Lada 1500. :-) :-) :-) I don't know the year, but I know that these were introduced in 1966, and not significantly redesigned until the 1980s.

Misenska At Sunset, Mala Strana, Prague, CZ, 2007

08 Nov 2007 260
This is Misenska, a historic street in the Mala Strana, or Lesser Quarter, of Prague. At the other end of the street is a Soviet-era street sign in Russian, which gets vandalised whenever anybody tries to fix it from the previous attack. I was there to take a photo of it, but it didn't come out (some other time, I guess).

People On Karluv Most, Prague, CZ, 2007

08 Nov 2007 346
This is one my favorite all-time Prague shots, taken, of course, on the Karluv Most. That's St. Vitus Cathedral and the Hradcany in the distance, of course.

People On Karluv Most, Picture 2, Prague, CZ, 2007

08 Nov 2007 317
I like this Karluv Most shot even better than the one above, I would venture that this is probably my best, second best, or third best Prague shot on Facebook, and now you can see it here. :-)

Contrails Over Sidliste Haje, Prague, CZ, 2007

08 Nov 2007 4 209
Here's yet another shot of Sidliste Haje. This is the shopping area by the Metro station, but I'm absolutely addicted to that pair of buildings in the background with the bridge between them and the clock on the right building. I've always thought it was one of the coolest Communist-era buildings in the city, and probably among the most interesting Prague buildings of the second half of the 20th Century. Why? Look at it. :-)

The Bush Again, 2007

08 Nov 2007 170
Here's the same bush from my weird photo collages, but this is just a regular shot of it taken this March (2007), as it was first starting to bloom for the Spring.

Most Legii Silhouette, Prague, CZ, 2007

08 Nov 2007 230
I took this sillouette of the Most Legii in Prague in order to get my take on a common subject attempted by many other Prague photographers. I took this with my Lomo 135BC, surprisingly.

Tower Blocks, Pankrac, Prague, CZ, 2007

08 Nov 2007 255
In addition to the City Tower, Pankrac is also home to the Corinthia Panorama Hotel, seen on the left, and a convention centre connected to the hotel, seen on the bottom and, I think, as the tower on the far right, which also houses offices.

Dotted Light On A Panelak Sidliste Haje, Prague, C…

08 Nov 2007 228
This was a random shot that I took when I saw the opportunity. The sun was going down, and amazingly, even though there were no holes in the building and wall across the street, there was this amazing dotted light down the side of this building.
