Leiser

2020

I was obsessed with finding different viewpoints around the city, not solely focusing on low-intimate landscapes. An elevated position was my best option to achieve that birds-eye view. Rushing to make the most of the blue hour as the sun started climbing behind the hills, I wondered up the not-suitable-for-tall-persons structure of ‘The Powder Tower’ (Prašná brána). Maneuvering around to find a semi-comfortable spot, I could then capture this magnificent piece of architecture accommodating the Leiser store as the immediate foreground to my image. The combination of the moody blues and the orange hues that illuminate the streets from the dozens of city lights; creates this sense of balance and comfort as the warm tones flow throughout the picture, imitating the lit streets and alleyways. The leading lines allow you to not just focus on the foreground but follow the trail of lights to the St. Vitus Cathedral as its silhouette highlights the beauty of Prague’s historical architecture.
