I heard of the recent explosion that happened in central Prague. I’m not too sure if anyone one was killed, but understand a few people may still be trapped under rubble.

This incident did not make me rush into my Lightroom archives to try and find an image of this beautiful city to process, however it did make me wonder where it happened. When I see something on the news I have to sometimes find out where that location is, but normally that’s simply narrowing it down to where an actual city is on the map (admittedly, it’s also sometimes establishing where a country itself is). However, when I’ve been to a location I find that I want to know where it is in further detail, down to street level. i.e. when I was in that location, did I walk over the spot where it took place?

Not sure if that’s some sort of morbid curiosity within me, but it does happen.

So yes, here is an image of Prague, taken from the top of the astronomical clock tower on a sunny day last year.

I’m debating on where to go this weekend, but failing in making my mind up. However, with the recent news coming in from the Netherlands about Queen Beatrix handing over power it may be that Amsterdam is a good call.
