Gas Lamp & Gothic Rooftops

By JanieB43  
Back to the Prague archives for this image....this was taken during a tour of the Jewish ghetto in Pragues' Old Town. All the lamps in this district are gas powered and are one of the distinguishing features of the area. The Gothic rooftops with their imposing spires make for a stunningly theatrical scene.

Many thanks for looking.


Large & F11 is good.

Great shot! I imagine you had to fidget a lot to get this angle and include all that you have in this....well worth the neck ache. AS you say wonderful theatrical features.

These are proper street lamps, not like the ones we have around today! I remember the gas lamps in my area when I were a lad...
Nice capture and framing, Jane.
