Last week, we traveled to Prague for a family vacation. I debated about bringing my good camera feeling torn about wanting to just soak up the sites and experiences in real time versus wanting to capture the bits and pieces of inspiration. Carrying a camera around your neck automatically changes your relationship to your place. There is a running dialog in your head debating about which images are worth capturing. (Fortunately digital cameras lower the bar considerably). As you can guess from the slideshow above, I chose to bring my camera to capture the inspirations of Prague and Cesky Krumlov (a medieval city to which we day-tripped). I tried to instinctively snap photos of sites that struck me. From these photos, I will draw, sketch, and paint studies of some of them, and perhaps some of these bits of inspiration will find their way into my work. The slideshow above contains some highlights! Enjoy!
