Around Prague

A PHOTO BLOG of this beautiful city I get to call home.  It's been almost 5 months since I arrived in Prague.  When I arrived I didn't know anyone but it didn't take long and before I felt right at home.  I cease to be amazed at the beauty and charm of this city.  The Czech people are wonderful and I've made many great new friends.   I will have a lot more to say about my experiences in future blog posts as I continue to get to know my new home on a deeper level.  For now though, here are some photos that I've taken since I've been here.  Mostly just day to day life on the streets.

Some of these photos are available as fine art prints at my print gallery:
