My name is Steve Breighner. I took the picture about two weeks ago while I was vacationing there.

It was taken in December 2007 in the old Jewish Cemetery in the Jewish Quarter of Prague on a cold and mysterious morning.
I am a 31 year old Irish man with a penchant for taking photos of cemeteries, abandoned houses and the hidden things in life.

I love the detail, but what is the symbolism of the open mouths of the figures?I spent 4 wonderful days in 2 years ago and yes, I will return. Doors and windows and alleyways incite my curiosity. Who designed all this, what thoughts were part of the process, what is the symbolism of the open mouths...to pray...to speak the truth??? As I travel I wonder about the people who lived there long ago. The door to this synagogue has opened to so many in fear and pain. There has been such sadness. Can we heal? Can we ever live in peace?

I was born in the very heart of the city near the Old Town Square and its genius loci just got into my veins. Having my dad and grandfather photo professionals, I just merged my love to streets of Prague with photo hobby and shoot and shoot.
This shot originated on cold, foggy December day, almost at dusk. Silence of the courtyard was interrupted by staccato of soldiers' boots...

This picture was taken in 2006 when I visited Czech Republic for 6 months on business trip. The camera used was Olympus MJU600 (my first camera of my life). I took this picture in a castle in a dim sunlight and the shadows were perfect from the roof was perfect for the effect. I live in South Africa and work as Software QA engineer. Originally I am from India. Love photography. Check my pictures at www.flickr.com/photos/12775002@N08/ where most of the pictures were taken in Prague and Brno.

"It was so cold and early in the morning as the photo was taken that you can see this from the withered light."
mavi olansa kafka'nin evi. normalde girisi parali olan bu sokaga gercek anlamda "sabahin korunde" gidince ucretsiz bir tur atmis olduk. eh kapali olan muzeleri de gezemedik haliyle..

The photo is the view of the castle from the hills behind (in the Royal Summer Palace) when I was traveling in Prague this summer. It might be the "White Tower" in the picture.
Holding camera to walking on a narrow path with only one-side-handrail built on a cliff was quite a scary experience.
