Prague: Tram Stop

The streets of Prague are a photographer's ideal hunting grounds. They teem with really interesting characters of all kinds. Even the roadsigns have a Bohemian interpretation like, for example, the bicycle route signs are actually made up of little bicycle silhoutetes superimposed upon each other.
But the most essential part of Prague is the tram system. It is a fascinating place to watch the locals go about their everyday business. Though trams are frequent, there are numerous lines and people tend to mill around tram stops waiting for their specific tram. I I had more time I would haev spent a day riding the trams and especially milling about at the stops where all kinds of colourful characters appeared.

A boy on crutches was trying to figure out what I was doing with my camera. I don't think he realised that he was being photographed even though he was just in front of me.

The fellow below even had the time to clip his fingernails while waiting.
