Walking through empty streets of Buzet I met only this courious dog.
Buzet is standing on the top of hill,above the fertile river Mirna valley. It was first mentioned as the prehistoric ruin of a castle, made like the acropolis, which top people could reach climbing circularly, like to the edge of a snail shell.
The settlement runs downward slope of the hill from the north to teh south. It has two town gates, four squares connected with three main streets. The main square with the parish church is chiseled uot in the live rock. The waterwell which dates thr 18th century was once the heart of the town.
Also knowing as city of truffles.

beau point de vue et bel angle de prise de vue, le dallage du sol donne une belle géométrie à l'ensemble.
Belle photo prise certainement en position de déséquilibre :-)
Beautiful point of view and beautiful camera angle, the pavement of the ground gives a beautiful geometry to the unit.
Beautiful photograph certainly taken in position of imbalance: -)beautiful note too

Splendid shot, Carmela !
I like a lot your choice of framing, and the ground with pebbles, and this dog alone in the street, abandoned ... and we wonder if there is an exit at the end of this street, it seems that there is !
This looks like some villages of Corsica in the moutains ...
The colours are beautiful !
I love this shot.
Congrats for this beautiful work !!!

Hi Carmen, I like the dog looking back. Makes a strong element.

The dogs nice here, but maybe just a little too central, and I think I'd have cropped the wall at the top, but a big smile for the niely observed and texture cobble street.

Nice atmosphere. I like the overall darkness and the great textures of the street stones. Also the marks of the humidity in the walls add good tones and details. The dog, is of course a funny element, and increases the feeling of a deserted place.

Another one in the series of our street/house scenery shots, Carmela. The dog looks a bit insulted; obviously does not like visitors...
The street and the steps leading to the doors form a good composition!

I think this shot would look quite nice in b/w or sepia. I would also brighten up the dog a bit. I like the atmosphere and textures very much.
