As children we watch with awe as our military perform rituals such as these. The guards at Buckingham Palace are legendary and although I’ve never been, each time I’ve seen the US Marine Corp I’ve been impressed as well.
I love this picture because it captures a moment in time, allowing these almost robotic soldiers to become somehow more human. Watching them live, they seem perfectly in tune and unblinkingly united yet this still frame shows them how different and unique each one is. Somehow I don’t think they would like it very much.
IF YOU GO: Prague is a beautiful city and we decided it was worthwhile to splurge on a day walking tour of the city. We managed to find a 50% off coupon in one of the hostels and were surprised when we were the only ones on the tour to pay such a low price. It was an enjoyable day in a beautiful, yet extremely touristy city.
