Falling Down


This is the first in a series of photographs from Shavteli Street, a short narrow laneway in the old town. It was the washing hanging out to dry that drew my eye to this old weather beaten wooden balcony. I shot it at this angle partly to exaggerate the angles and lines of the structure and partly because with the street being only about twelve feet wide it was impossible to get any kind of straight on view. I'm not quite sure if it works but I like it nonetheless.

It's a photo of a balcony with lots of history and character! I just hope nobody smokes on it!

Thanks Leif. Unfortunately, everybody smokes around here - pretty nasty cigaretted too.
