This week’s DP challenge is Under Your Feet.
We had a good time on Hvar Island, Croatia.
Everyday, we walked upon limestone pavement on the seaside promenade.
It is interesting that the pavements are all paved in limestone blocks ( some said it was marble).
Here is a photo showing how the pavement looks, with a little cute puppy resting on it. To add to the otherwise plain background, I have got some pretty flowers.
The one below shows a bigger dog, walking slowly under the sun, by the sea.
The sun was fierce and he was sweating and panting. The picture, however, is a bit monotonic.
Beautiful and so clean. The cobblestones here in Mexico are so irregular. An invitation to sprained ankles. Your pavers are even and beautiful…http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/08/09/delayed-agenda/
Would like to see those in Mexico too, interesting!
I’ll see if I can find a picture for you, Michael.
Okay, here they are, Michael. Couldn’t think of any other way to show them to you, so I did a little posting. Here it is: http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/08/09/mexican-cobblestones-for-michael/
Thank you, lovely!
Beautiful.! I’ve always wanted to go to Hvar. Next time I’m in Croatia 🙂
Hvar originally was not on our plan, glad that we included it.
I love the pictures. And now I feel like cuddling those dogs.
They are cute!

First time to see limestone block paving so widely used. Glad that you like it, Nora!
Didn’t a friend of yours have a retriever?
Yes, it was reared on a fishing raft. It was drowned last summer and I have not blogged on it ever since.
Oh. Poor thing.
Will do a post on him if I have the time / heart!
When I was a young student I moved away from the boring outer suburb into old inner city suburbs. I used to love wandering around the old bluestone cobbled back lanes on sunny days, peering into the backyards and soaking up the warmth reflected off the old stones. I used to love observing the difference between the neat front yards maintained for public appearance, with the messier, more natural states of the backyards, and imagining the earlier life of these backlanes which were designed for horse and cart times.
I like photographing back alleys too!
