James Dean may have only made three movies but his memory and fan base continue to live on and grow. The James Dean Prague, a 1950’s style diner, keeps that memory going. It is one of my favorite places for breakfast and one of the only places in the Czech Republic that serves anything similar to an American Style Breakfast at a reasonable price.
So when I thought of doing a small shoot there that went beyond the decor, design of the establishment, and of course their wonderfully delightful waitresses, I thought of my James Dean enthusiast friend Michael Macák.
So Michael being the sport he is met me at the restaurant and we did a 1950s style diner shoot. The results I am sure you will agree, truly pay homage to an American Movie Icon.

Prior to the big opening of the Christmas Markets in Prague many people were involved in decorating. From City Employees and shop owners it seemed the whole city was involved.
Some bulbs were as big as tires and lights were as numerous as 20,000 for the tree in the main square coming in at almost 80feet tall. No small measure to decorate as those decorating had to be lifted by cranes.
From Old Town Square to the Lesser Square and all the squares in Prague, trees and decorations were going up in preparation for the Advent Season and the start of the Christmas Markets.
There’s a new place in Prague which is part Club and part Restaurant. In our first photography event we chose this location for its edgy design and industrial urban feel. Marija Neringa and BozhiDara Boyadzhieva showed up for the event and really stole the show.
Located at V Kolkovně 5 they do breakfast, lunch, and dinner upstairs starting at 8am Mon – Fri, and 9am sat – Sun. Then as dusk approaches the underground club in the basement opens up and is there for your drinking and dancing pleasures until 4am. We had the opportunity to try the food there and it was quite nice, clearly made fresh, and was reasonably priced with good value, despite being in the tourist center of Prague.
