The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (10)

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, Tallin etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.DSC_0361

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!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective (2)

One of the things we learned while studying our first year of engineering was to prepare elevations, plans as well as perspective view of objects.

I have always liked drawing out perspectives. It was fun!

Maybe I have carried this into my photos – I like taking images that gives a three dimensional perspective.

The following two images were taken in Split, Croatia.CIMG1406

Split has a lot of narrow alleys with arches straddling above.

Common to both images are the limestone tiles and walls.

I especially like the contrast in color in front and behind the arch in the first picture. It is like seeing light at the end of a tunnel.CIMG1404

I like the second image too, the contrast in color is not as great as the first one. It shows two people chatting at the very far end.

Hope you enjoy my second entry of perspectives!
