On either side of the statue of St John of
Nepomuk on Prague's Charles Bridge is a
polished bronze plaque, the right-hand
one depicting the priest being flung off the
bridge into the Vltava below, from roughly
where the statue is now. The falling priest
is a good-luck charm that Czech
passers-by touch for their daily fix and to
ensure their return to Prague - the way
folk fling coins into the Trevi fountain in
Rome for the same reason. This picture is
of the other one, on the left-hand side of
the statue. It has no special significance
and no good-luck manifestations, and it
seems that only people who don't know
the legend of St John touch it and
contribute to its polish. I shot this one as I
thought it the better bronze, and there
wasn't a queue to fondle it.
