Lens Artists: Delicate Colors

In the citadel there is a narrow street and an ancient door
Hundreds of people ghost past it
Hundreds have and hundreds will
For a hundred years and a hundred more.   

These photos were taken at the old citadel in Prague.  The location has a magnificent cathedral which  I found far too grand  to photograph. Instead I focused on a side door and experimented with the ebb and flow of pedestrians walking by.

When Ann Christine posted her topic  for Lens Artists Photo Challenge #98, I thought of this collection.  The delicate and ghostly colors offer a sense of fragility against the solid permanence of the door.  Uncannily appropriate for these times.

    1. It’s so true. Of course, none of this occurred to me when I started playing with the photos. In fact I was prepping for something else entirely. I was going to put this set aside but then I saw the LAPC theme. It’s always nice when a challenge pulls together something I wouldn’t have thought of naturally. Thanks for appreciating it Amanda.
