Praha

Just now I earn my daily bread working on the visual development of a live action feature film.
You don't earn any brownie points by painting things. So I work with photo-collage and draw in whatever can't be clipped and pasted.
I have just found these photos that I took in Prague some years ago. I had just begun working with Photoshop...At the time I didn't realise that you could draw and paint with it.
Anyway, I had a bad weekend in Prague: the city seemed steeped in mediaeval gloom and I was coming down with a dose of flu.

I am especially taken by the middle image - the silhouetted fellow.

Hello elliot,
I think it's Jan Huss, who was burned at the stake...or one of the guys who was thrown out of a window...or, perhaps it was the one who was locked in a room for ever and ever and commanded to discover the philosopher's stone.
