One hour ,50 photos at Cafe Slavia-Prague

The photos you can see in this slideshow , are part of a photographic assignment , that me and the other photographer students had to carry out during our stay in Prague.

The assignment was shortly: Each of us had to pick a place (not more than 5 metre square) in the city , stay there for at least one hour and take at least 50 digital photos or a whole film (consisting of 36,24 photos for 35 mm cameras and 12 or less for medium format cameras and just one for large format cameras).

I choosed to work on digital this time , since i`m still a beginer in analogue photography and since i wanted to get some colorful photos this time (on analogue we work only b&w ).
But soon i`ll post here photos from another assignment : this one in analogue;)

Anyways , i decided to realize this assignment at Cafe Slavia , one very famous historic Czech cafe .
The reason i choosed this cafe , was because i liked it atmosphere , but also because of it`s very cool location in one of the most popular Prague streets.Surrounded by the National theatre, Charles bridge and the Prague Castle , this cafe has a lot to offer visually;)
And not only;)

The fact that it has been one of the favourite cafes of Kundera and Kafka made the cafe a `must` location;)

Of course i couldn`t get all of the above written locations in my photos, but i could profit of the busy street images and the lovely corner i had in front of me;)

It was a compelling assignment i must say ;) Sometimes i felt like bored and sometimes like stucked in but did not give up anyway;)

To spice up my senses i decided to order an absinth coffe , the speciality of the restaurant;)
It was a nice one;)

One hour passed away faster than i thought;)
I must say it was a fun time for me documenting one hour of my experience in a cafe of a city i was not familiar to;)

It was challenging too,because it forced me to take photos of objects that i don`t always notice.
So in a way was a disciplining assignment for me;)
It`s good to discipline your ideas and photographic eye i think , since everyone tends to ignore things that aren`t part of their interest, but of course this doesn`t mean that them are less important;)

ps: none of the photos is edited.
