Dubrovnik, Pearl of the Adriatic

Dubrovnik is the center of the region of Dalmatia in Croatia and a famous touristic destination. The Old City, called the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, is a World Heritage Site.

I tried to capture what I considered most characteristic for this beautiful city, like this shiny pavement. Often focusing on a detail tells more than trying to show everything at once.

It was sunny and hot… One should never photograph when the sun is harsh? Na.

Repeating patterns are always great to photograph. The side light helped me bring the texture out from the umbrellas and from the sea. Everything sings when bathed in the warm afternoon sun. The snorkeler was not a mere coincidence – I waited for him to come to a perfect location.

    I love this old city. I spent some time there in 2009. Croatia is one of my most favorite places on the planet. Great pictures!
