Look Up, Czech Republic XI

DSC_2969

People moving
Led by cameras
As if by some magnetic force.
Viewing monuments in crowds
Through a lens, on a screen
Glancing at the result:
A photograph
Then moving on

DSC_2997

A man sets up a tripod
For a self portrait
In a mass of passing people
His face shows no joy
Is he alone
Or lonely?

DSC_3158

A women waiting for a portrait
Dances on tiptoes
To keep warm
Or to capture
An improbable weightlessness?

DSC_3311

Couples
Holding hands
Shutters
Firing multiple times
Could it be true,
That one is sometimes enough?
