This is Day III of the challenge called Five Days of Black&White, where you are chosen by a fellow blogger to post black&white images five days in a row and every day you are to choose another fellow blogger to continue the challenge.
I was very humbled by the fact that I received two requests for this challenge, both from bloggers I admire and respect very much, Robyn from Captivate Me and Ben from Aperature64.
Ever in a pursuit to tell a different story, I decided to share not only the photos, but also little parts of my life, my little love stories.
My love affair with Prague started 25 years ago, when I first visited this magical city. The City of Thousand Spires and countless intriguing stories about its history, it captured my heart from the start.
I would walk for hours, visiting every park, church, museum I could find. Or just sit near Karl’s Bridge, watching people walk by.
I have a special place that I visit every time, Královska zahrada (Royal Garden) in the Hradčany district. There is a bench with a lovely view of St. Vitus’s Cathedral and the Castle’s walls and bastions. It is always quiet there, secluded from the tourists. I sit on that bench, under the umbrage of ancient trees and collect all the little pieces of my soul that somehow got scatter around.
It’s been years since I last visited Prague. My beloved aunt lived and died in that beautiful city and it’s been forever marked by that loss. But, maybe it is time for me to visit my secret spot and collect the pieces of my soul once more.
Today I nominate Priceless Joy from Beautiful Words and I am adding a twist to this challenge. Post five days in a row b&w or color images through which you will tell a story. It doesn’t matter what the story is, just that there is a story behind every image. It can be one sentence, a dribble from your life, a fiction, a poem, long, short, interconnected through all five days or every day a new story.
This is NOT a ‘have to’ and you can choose not to play along if you’d rather not or do it later if it doesn’t fit your current schedule.. it’s completely up to you.
If you choose to play along – you post a photo for five consecutive days from when you start and each day nominate another photographer to enter the challenge. Or you can add your own twist and let this challenge grow.
Tomorrow comes another image with another love story…hope you’ll enjoy it.
