Tram Stop, Náměstí Míru

Today, in common with several other parts of Europe, we had our first covering of snow. For those affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder the morning was a blessing - frosty, icy underfoot, and a sparkle in the air.

Night comes early, though, and here at the tram stop there's not much relief from the pervasive dark: a few streetlamps and the promise of 'Snídaně' (breakfast); other than that it's a hurry to get home and escape the chill that seems to penetrate even the warmest of scarves.

This tram stop is at a busy intersection with the metro. On the left of the picture the tracks continue along Francouzská to Vršovice and beyond, while to the right the same line takes passengers in ten minutes to the National Theatre, then across the river to the western side of the city. On the corner, behind the posters, are the illuminated arched windows of the Pizzeria Grosseto.

Snow in Prague! Snow in Portland, Oregon! Rather be in Prague! I loved the Christmas Markets at Namesti Miru....

Nice street shot, I like the motion in it.

Thanks. Both that and the graininess are the happy accidents of my not being terribly good at photographing in poor light...
