I love this clock. It's the Prague Astronomical Clock, it's been there more than 400 years before Melbourne (where I lived) was even founded, it's huge and it looks fantastic. I decided on a dawn shot to get the sun on the wall so, as usual, it was another early morning for me. I got lucky with the weather, unusual for me. Through the day there are dozens if not hundreds of tourists standing in front of and all around the clock so a shot like this would be impossible, but at this time of the day, when sane people are still in bed, I had a chance of a clear shot. Except there were two young backpackers sitting right in front at the base of the clock, looking at a map. It felt rude to ask them to move just for me so I walked around a bit, hoping they'd get up and leave on their own. They didn't and the sun wasn't going to wait so I approached them, told them what I was trying to do, and asked if they could just scoot out of the way for a bit so I could take a quick shot. They couldn't have been nicer about it and this was the result. Then a lady with a camera who was hovering nearby came up and thanked me because she was also waiting for them to leave and take her own shot. It's a popular clock.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).

The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.

The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.

If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
