Tirana has some beautiful houses. Beside the main roads you could find interesting places and on the next corner, you could find cafeterias with the best espresso outside Italy.

Une architecture vraiment particulière que tu as mis en valeur avec des couleurs contrastées.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

belle photo de cette architecture, impossible de ne pas comparrer avec chez nous, les pentows sont légèrement plus petit que les autres appartements.
Ici, ils sont plus grands.Super vue.

une belle perspective avec ces batiment de brique rouge qui contraste parfaitement avec le bleu du ciel

A good capture of these rather interesting looking buildings. I like the long perspective. The detail in the brickwork are very well rendered and the tones are natural and pleasing.

This is great daily great daily life scene showing the street and buidling of where people live. The clothes hanging outside to dry. Very eastern European. The top floor of the brick building extended out look kind of unsafe. I wouldn't want to be up there if this were in California where there are eathquakes. Great details and good light and color. I really enjoy it much. Thanks Achim.

a clear and sharp photo with good POV and amazing light,

Lovely modern look at this city that until recently was closed to the west.
Excellent use of light renders fine sharp details to this lovely urban shot.

very nice shot with tons of details, great colors and a good angle. The parked cars( rather chaotic), the satellite dishes, the laundry, a/c, the barred windows - so much to see here. Well done!
Schönen Abend, bis bald,

I like the POV and the colours, although the road is over-exposed, and the fact that you show us part of daily life, which is not very luxurious. These buildings don't look finished, and it seems to happen in a lot of mediterrenean countries.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2008-11-13 20:52
In here, I can see the result of a hard way of life where the improvisation sense of the people is the main characteristic. The fact of having the bare brick wall only means that they did not have cement for the rendering. It is a very good documentary shot showing a reality not many times seen here on TE. Thanks for sharing.

Reading your country list, one understand that I have a lot left to visit. I am not that informed about Albania, but I like the buildings architecture even if it seem to need some repairs.

Albania is not a much featured country here so it's nice to see how it looks like, nice perspective on the street, where we ca feel the need to get news of the world given the number of sat dishes !
Have a nice day JY
Jakab (3867) 2008-11-14 16:15
aha, aber diese Bauten zählst Du wohl nicht zu den wunderbaren Häusern. Eine interessante Dokumentation von einer geographisch nicht, in der Seele aber doch sehr ferner Welt.
adores (44843) 2008-11-14 19:15
These buildings are really original! I like the details like the antenas, the air conditioning. Seems nothing is missing there.Good pov and colours!
Stepan (27210) 2008-11-15 3:05
Unusual subject, interesting subject then...
This architecture looks really strange. Impossible to guess if it's new, old... Very very interesting and usefuk post.
Yffic (6106) 2008-11-15 6:17
Thanks a lot for this picture showing us one of the most secret country in Europe.
Architecture in this country seems very original.

rbcy1974 (20758) 2008-11-17 3:57
Very interesting architectural shot
YOu have given us a good idea of the living conditions over there. Very interesting to look at
giorgimer (34941) 2008-11-17 9:07
the last floor is really impressive, good documentation, you well chose the POV.
pierrefonds (64782) 2008-12-01 14:38
The pint of view showing two sides of the building is an asset to the composition and is allowing us to see the details and colors of the architecture of the building. The presence of the people and of the cars has an effect of scale. The intensity of the light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.

Very interesting picture . Albania is so close but in the same time so far away .
emjleclercq (15780) 2008-12-06 12:47
This is the first time I remember seing a picture of an Albanian building, and this house intersting, and somewhat utilitarian (if not very esthical).
All the best,
