The Scary Path in the Czech Republic

The Scary Path in the Czech Republic Haunted Jablůnka Candles light a path through the darkness of the forest floor and we creep forward, alert for the next horror awaiting us: witches, grim reapers, ghost brides, and a wolf behind the bushes. But the kids with us are brave. A skeleton sneaks up behind Klárka and taps her shoulder. She just looks back at him, solemn-faced. Natálka, Klárka, František, and Jeníček touch the hair of the beautiful but very dead girl in the coffin. They put a severed head in a bucket to tidy up for the...

Tramping Czech Republic

Tramping Czech Republic

What is Czech Republic Tramping? Before the communist era in the Czech Republic, there was a loosely organized group of outdoorsmen who liked to go “tramping.” They would pack a few essentials—bedroll, mess-tin, matches—then hike out into the woods or the hills and camp. Inspired in part by exotic tales of the American Old West, some “tramps” even dressed as cowboys, much like my fellow Arizonans dressing up as knights to go to Renaissance festivals. Though I didn’t do any camping in the Czech Republic, hiking...

Traditional Dance in Vsetín

Traditional Dance in Vsetín

Czech folk dancing amazes me. Not the costumes or the music or the precise steps, though I enjoy those. It’s the fact that teenage boys happily don traditional clothes and hop around in not-always-masculine dances. Willingly. The teenage boys I know back home would be way too cool for that. But here in the Czech Republic, it’s a mark of honor to belong to one of the folk dancing groups in town. Vsetín, with a population of 28,000 people, has no fast food chains and can hardly support its movie theater, but it has two complete folk...

Prague in Black and White

Posted by on 12:31 pm in Camera Talk, Czech Republic, Spotlight | 0 comments

Call me old fashioned but when it comes to black and white photography, I like to use a film camera and my old trusty Canon AE-1 does the trick. I use a variety of lenses from wide angle to telephoto and Fujifilm’s Neopan stock, but that was my preference for the shots I planned to take on my trip to Prague. I highly recommend going by your trusted local camera shop and talk to them about what and where you are shooting. They will be able to make the best recommendation for film stock. Prague is, in my humble opinion, one of the best cities...
