golden town -- Prague by night

     Just a few photographic impressions walking through town to go out to dinner. 

     The lasting impression you get of Prague at night is the golden aura that seems to permeate the old city. It is achieved by the simplest of techniques, yellow light bulbs in the street lamps that mimic the old gas lights of the 19th Century (the photos do not capture them well). Not a harsh blue-white fluorescent light in sight.
