A Bit of B&W: Streets of Piran

Streets of Piran

Piran, Slovenia is a beautiful coastal town on a very thin peninsula of land jetting out into the sea. I went there by chance and was awed by the town’s coastal scenery and small alleys. This alley was cool and shady on a hot summer day. You can see how old the cities around the Mediterranean are. I hope you can imagine the feel of the warm sea air in the shade of this alley.

As I was getting ready to take the picture of the empty alley, this girl walked into the picture. At first I was annoyed, but I had recently read that people liven up scenery shots by making them seem real. In the end I like the picture very much, and the girl in the picture adds a human touch to this scene.
