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.
