Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame ( Dubrovnik 4 )

This week’s photo challenge is Frame.

Many of my pictures taken in Dubrovnik are framed.DSCF0969

There are many picturesque views you see through small windows while walking the Dubrovnik seawalls or through arches of medieval buildings.

As some of the architectural arches appear to frame the subject very well too.DSCF0863

These pictures were captured while walking the streets or sea walls of Dubrovnik.

It looks as if the old town and the sea was reviewed frame by frame.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow (Alleyways in Split)

I have posted on Split; a place which we almost missed out in our trip planning in Croatia.

We were undecided whether we w0uld stay a night in Split, but are happy that we did.DSCF0425

I like the palace and the old town, in particular,

Wandering down the narrow alleyways was really interesting.DSCF0428

You never know what you would come across, there were so many unexpected twists and turns.

Every discovery on the way was a joy.DSCF0433

It was an excellent location for photographers too.

Masonry walls and limestone pavements every where.DSCF0423

You find yourself link back romantically to the distant past.

A place that I recommend for those planning to travel in Croatia!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow (Street of Dubrovnik)

This week’s photo challenge is Narrow.

I like narrow streets as you never know what lies at the end of the street or alley way.DSCF0974

The narrowness of the alley or street instills some mystical atmosphere.

Sometimes, it is more than mystical, it is a romantic link back to the distant past of the area.DSCF0722

Many times, it is not the alley that is interesting but the subject on the sides of the alley.

This could be old buildings, medieval churches , masonry walls of great heights.DSCF0888

Altogether, they make the pictures look interesting!

The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (1)

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

Vilinus, Riga, Tallin etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.DSC_0154

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!
