Photographer's Note

Prague is a city with many many old and very fine churches, like this one.

I found a very fine text about these churches called "Exploring the churches of Prague" written by Leigh Darilek. Bellow is a little text of the main text:

When you know you have a set amount of time, you always seem to get more accomplished. You also relish each minute down to every specific second and have this enhanced memory for excess details that can later be recalled with more vivid colors, precise descriptions and rich emotions.

That would be a good way to describe my first eight weeks in Europe, the summer of 2000, and also now to an extent. After moving across the Atlantic, at what some might call a spontaneous moment, I do not know how long I have here and the uncertainty makes me yearn to take in as much as possible.

One way I took advantage of my limited time was by visiting and attending mass at a different church each Sunday. I also saw many cathedrals during excursions our group took, but to attend mass in a church that is over 700 years old is quite amazing. To attend mass in the same cathedral as past kings and queens is like a tale from a storybook. And to know these churches heard the prayers, petitions and words of these royalty as well as peasants, travelers, invaders of the past along with present day community and tourists makes me feel so tiny and humbled as I genuflect before entering a pew.
