Final Post From Prague, Thank God

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Simile Warning: Time is slowing down here like a drugged trombonist playing into the edge of the universe from atop a braking spaceship.

There are a few more days of shooting to help flame my growing head cold. And just a few more nights to rest my flabby frame on high end cotton sheets.

One of the highlights of the trip, and also the source of some of my best interior photos in Hotel Prague. This still functioning relic of the communist elite is a combination of luxury, dilapidation, and a Shining-like mood. Part of me wishes we stayed here instead.
