April Squares: Top Shots, Prague

ISO 125 f/2.2 1/33sec 4.2mm

Day 13, find other responses here.

Date and Location of Photo: December 18, 2017. Pinkas Synagogue in Prague, built in 1535. Currently its walls have the names of 80,000 Jewish victims of the Holocaust from Czech lands. It’s beautiful and sad this memorial, but I was so grateful to be able to visit. Over the last four years I have had the opportunity to visit many sites related to WWII and it has helped inform my view of the war in a way that reading history books has not, reading and seeing are two different things certainty. Speaking of reading, I just finished and would highly recommend, When Time Stopped by Ariana Neumann, it’s a family memoir of the war years and makes mention of this particular synagogue in an unexpected way.

Thoughts on the Edit: I kept this edit simple. It is a custom vintage edit.

April Squares, an Explanation:

When Becky announced that the April Squares theme was going to be “top”, I thought it over and then sent her a message, then pitched my idea. She was open to my theme within the theme and the result is my response to the April Squares challenge.

I move a lot and I have a move pending. I’ve lived here in England for about four years and will be heading to the United States. Exact dates to be determined, given the current world situation, details have yet to be worked out. My April Squares is a “top shots” reflection on the last four years. Each square represents some moment or place that was meaningful to me. They are in chronological order moving forward in time. I’m attempting to post every day. All photos will be edited in Luminar 3. I hope you enjoy following along, I’ve enjoyed the process of creating. Your comments and thoughts are welcome below.

  1. I am thinking as your move looms that this review of special places may be a cathartic process. Wishing you well during this time of change and with so much going on in the world. Stay well.
