The Lawall crew in the subway
Today we actually had to do our primary work, ie set up the ballroom for the show we were doing there. Our German gear providers are the most wonderful people. Not only have they become good friends over the years, but they are great at what they do and they always come baring gifts, i.e. cases of good Bavarian beer. That was the point when we discovered the greatest gift the Crowne Plaza had to offer us�"the greatest loading dock of all time. It was a quiet little area with trees, beautiful architecture around us, and privacy. We could drink, smoke, talk trash all in our own little world. It was great.

Set went quickly and we were out by about 1700. Steve and I went out shooting, mainly at an area in the bushes bellow a restaurant we had eaten at near the river bank where we could shoot across the river at the St Charles Bridge with some cool lit up buildings around it.
We also did some great shooting of Prague Castle across the river from the other side.

Steve and I spent the majority of this trip practicing our HDR skills, so if many of my shots look too highly stylized, forgive me, I am experimenting. It has so much potential to be artsy and all, I couldn’t pass it up. Don’t worry, within the three, bracketed shots I have the center exposure which is a normal shot that I can fall back on and can post for you purists out there. Steve, Eric and I also had some beers and food in the Old Town Square again. For those of you who have been here, you know the black magic embodied here to drag poor tourist souls back over and over again. It is so unbelievably enchanting and peaceful; storybook type of European square look. The towers of the cathedral are so beautiful, in fact some of the most beautiful one could hope to see. I keep waiting for Sauron’s eye to appear above the turrets. Could almost make one believe in god  … na … it too was built by humans.
