    Have fun. I've nearly got to Prague several times, when I visit head office in Vienna, but I never seem to have enough time.

    A fantastic city filled with unbelievably beautiful scenery!

    Keep an eye out for my jacket that I lost last October after a "few" beers!

    well - very early tursday morning I'll leave for my favourite city...

    this time I will do two things (when time permits, as I have students to take care of):

    I'll proberly take a small LF camera with a Verito lens with me, and then look out some of the places J Sudek used to photograph.. that will be fun.

    And then I'll go to "Skoda Photo2, the largest photo shop in Prague. Last time I was there, they had the largest Voigtlaender Euryscop I have ever seen for sale.....
    I can't find any information on it - but I remember it to be a nr 8 which is huge, and made of some sort of aluminium metal stuff - not brass...

    I didn't buy it then (as it cost about 1200$), but told my self that if it is still there.... then it must be a sign from above..

    lets see.

    any of you know about this huge lens? I can't find it mentioned in the Vademecum or else where..


    Anyway: a little bit of jealousi from you guys is welcomed..

    I'm not jealuos at all, really I'm not. Ahh bummer, wich I could go I'd like to see that photo store. I was in Praque in spring -99 with my Lab-class. Lots of tourist and not much time on our own so I didn't see much apart from the obvious stuff.
    Have a nice trip. fingers crossed for that lens
    Kind regards

    it is right in the center of town. the main street is called Venceslas square, and the street that crosses (where the trams drive), is called Vodickova. Here are two of the great shops located.
    see attachment: The "big" red dot, is PhotoSkoda, which is the largest, and the small dot, is where Foto Optika is located - mostly with analouge old stuff...

    Have a nice trip - fascinating city!
