The National Geographic (Germany) awarded my photo “ Solitar ” in the competition Readers’ Photographs best picture in December 2009. The photo had been made in Prague in winter 2007. The picture “ Solitar ” is a casual and spontaneous capture near St. Vitus Cathedral and the old Royal Palace. Strong winter light, shadows and a door – All on a wall; a highly subjective reality. A scene striking enough to resist.
