Photographer's Note


I haven’t finished with Wrocław yet, but here’s already one photo from our next destination on last summer’s trip in Central Europe, just for yesterday’s special occasion: the 40th anniversary of the murder of John Lennon by Mark David Chapman in New York City on December 8, 1980.

This is the Lennon Wall (Lennonova zeď) in the district of Malá Strana in Prague. The wall has been used for love poems and short messages since the 1960s and was later, after his death, dedicated to John Lennon, as a symbol of freedom, political struggle and western culture. Apart from many other messages, it nowadays often features the word ‘Love’ in many different languages. I took some photos of the wall during my first visit to Prague in February 2019 as well, but the light was quite bad (it was just after sunset then) and it was a lot more crowded. This summer the sunlight was much better and there were hardly any people at all.

Of course I should’ve posted this photo yesterday, but hey, “Yesterday” isn’t one of The Beatles’ best-known songs for nothing. :-)
