This set of realistic street photos was taken in Prague.
This is, of course, a fragment of my January street photo. I found new places that seem interesting and help my minimalist style.
Prague is a wonderful place. Everything is close together. Lots of beautiful nooks and alleys.
I often wonder how to photograph here. Somewhere I see interesting photos from New York, San Francisco, London, etc. And I think, there must be so good to take pictures.
Or is it just a lack of modern architecture in Prague?
Rather, I wonder that it’s a problem in me, that I don’t have realistic expectations? That I can not make do with a place that may not be on the photographic scene as sophisticated as the mentioned New York.
But in retrospect, I realize that this is my subjective feeling. It’s not even my opinion, it’s really a feeling.
It is clear that somewhere to be a day or a month is not always enough to know a place for street photography.
At the same time, I wonder if I do not unnecessarily bother with such a thought myself. I want very much to have a lot of something in a hurry with the result. Taking pictures some day in a place I don’t know at all can give me courage and freedom. When I focus on street photography to the fullest, without expecting a concrete result. Of course, maintaining a professional approach and honest work.
It’s just my reflection on street photography as such.
The file published here is the result of realistic moments. Nothing arranged.
I processed the photos only in Adobe Lightroom by converting it to black and white photo.
