Sometimes you must climb up and shoot down to make a photograph work. It took 800 steps to reach to the top of St. Vitus Cathedral's bell tower -- the view over Prague was fascinating. However making "postcard" views and vistas do not interest me. I need something else in the picture as a symbolic counterpoint. I saw a rooster weathervane rising above the red tile rooftops slightly below me, and instantly knew that it would become the subject of my picture, with the view as its context. A lone person walks in the square below near St. George's Convent -- the oldest in Bohemia. The tiny size of that figure tells us how high we really are. I adjusted my vantage point slightly to position the rooster weathervane so that its open beak becomes the pivot of the picture. Behind it, a series of roof lines lead our eyes to that tiny figure in the square, as well as to the Convent. It was only a small shift in space, but it helped me coherently link the rooster to its domain.
