  Prague, Czech Republic:
Arriving into Prague at night was magical. The air was crisp after a rainstorm passed through, making the city lights softly glow like swaying candle flames, transforming the entire city into a magical land of fairy tales. During the day the magic seemed to receed but hordes of tourists continue to search for it. I haven't seen crowds of tourists this big since a trip Disneyland. Maybe it was the crowds that made the magic seem lost to me. Nevertheless, I had a wonderful stay and hope to return again.

I enjoyed getting lost and discovering quiet cobblestone streets such as this one. It took me about 10 minutes to set up this shot by balancing my my camera on top of my daypack.
