This may not be what you see in most people’s vacation shots, but to me it means Prague just as much as any photo of Charles Bridge. I spent lots of my time in Prague in neighborhoods like this, in Opatov or Pankrac (Hey, I can see my house from here!). We traveled around the city every day, so we never felt stuck in those neighborhoods. I can see how it could be oppressive to live in that kind of environment for a long time. But to me these photos mean Prague, and a personal connection that I rarely feel from photos of Prague.
