The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (15)

I will be doing a series on streets and alleys of the Baltic countries.

I have been to all the Baltic capitals which includes visiting of some of the UNESCO Heritage sites like Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.DSC_0003A

I am not able to tell you exactly where those alleys and streets are; in my simple mind, they are my memorable parts of the Baltic.

I like the cobblestones, the quaint street, the colored walls on both sides of the alleys, the cafes along or encroached onto the roads, the crude masonry wall facing and last, but not the least, the friendly people.

They leave an undeletable part in my memory!

  1. I’ve loved the photos in this series. But every time I read this phrase: “in my simple mind” I want to tell you that you are not at all simple minded. I think you have an artistic mind. A mind that looks for, finds and shares beauty. That is not at all ‘simple.’

    Please don’t sell yourself short!

    • But that is different than simple-mindedness.

      Your photos are often of simple places, but it isn’t a simple thing to see the beauty of them.

      Honestly, I love this series. they bring back all the warmth of European cities. And one of my favorite things about these streets and alleyways is the feeling of history that you get when you walk them. You can feel the thousands of footfalls that went before yours. And you know that there will be thousands after….

    • Many people have now developed very complicated thinking which deprived them the many joys including those of spontaneity. I hope I can have a more simple mind, Elyse so that I can enjoy the world like a three years old!
