Attempted Symmetry

By akiestar
On a back street somewhere in Prague, you'll find streets like this one which at least try to make things looks symmetrical. Well, one can try, right?

This is an interesting shot, Josh! I like that you attempted to go for symmetry here. Prague is just one of those cities that you have to visit once in your life, and it’s very recognisable when you’ve been. You’ve managed to capture that bit very well; if you know Prague, you’ll know this is it. I like that you chose to frame the middle building using the other houses in the street. They act like leading lines, leading our eyes toward the main subject of the photo: that white building in the middle. The only thing that bothers me a little is that while everything else is framed nicely, the street isn’t symmetric. I would advise to really make sure you’re in the middle of the road next time, this will add to that effect! Overall though, you did great, so keep taking photos!

Now i'm trying to work out where it is :D although i swear the streets in Prague move about by themselves, probably in the early morning, so the maps are never right! :D

Czechia, Praha 6-Dejvice (view from Kyjevska street to "Korean church" on Wuchterlova street):…

Have a nice day!

Ah yes, i see, thank you, have walked past it. Each year in February i go to a computer/information conference in Prague and try to have time to wander around. It is such a beautiful city.

Goodness, wotawota has great sleuthing skills! :O

I was actually attending a conference in this part of Prague when I was here and I figured this was a good shot to include. :)

That is very true! :D I do have more pictures from the trip -- maybe I'll be able to upload more. :giggle:

i hope so! i have a few Prague pictures up here, although i think more from Praha 1 than Praha 6, because the conference moved.

Beautiful by LOVEMAYU  shot, dear Josh. We can certainly try to be symmetrical as you say. They did a great job of it here in your amazing photo. Keep posting them. I love traveling through your eye.  I-love-your-work! by faryba
