Not all the streets in Old Town Tallinn are renovated. One can find also such abandoned but picturesque places near the city walls. It would be nice to see someone there, but I was quite alone. And as you can see, after some frosty days there came thaw.

Ciao cara Itchy Feet
oooh you were a brave Itchy Feet walking these deserted streets alone. I hope this area is safe! Anyway, an interesting photo, with good symmetry and wonderful textures from those ancient walls. A great shot, I like it a lot.
Warmest wishes, un abbraccio

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.Le regard suit naturellement la rue enneigée dans l'image vers la maison jaune en arrière plan. Le ciel complètement délavé donne un aspect romantique à l'ensemble.

You have really been following my foot-steps. I remember this street very well, but there was no snow or slush in late May. There were not many streets in old Tallinn in those days that were not lined with tourists. The weather seems to have been rather dull, but the mild colours are very nice, a lot nicer than the street. I hope you had good shoes.

A very nice back stret scene in a wintry Tallin. I pretty sure I have been in this street almost 25 years ago. Judging from some photos I took then the decay seems to have gone even further than in those days. I agree with that I would have been possible to take an even better photo with some people in the street. TFS and have a fine week!

This is a rather spooky looking place, the conditions of the buildings and the complete lack of people gives this the feel of a horror film. And I love horror films, so to me this is a beautiful place. A nice composition with lots and lots of depth, leading off to the corner. And what is around that corner??? Only the director of this film know.... :)
All the best

il ghiaccio si sta trasformando in acqua e la strada è piena di poltiglia, forse è per questo che non c'era nessuno, tranne i curiosi obiettivi dei membri TE che si aggiravano enigmatici tra le vie cittadine per procurare ottimi scatti a coloro che se ne stavano al caldo a casa propria :)
Bel colpo, grazie

Hi Ms. Emka,
How are you dear Malgo? In an oddly fascinating way, I find this empty street quite attractive. A lovely converging perspective as well, leaving me to wonder what lies in the distance...people perhaps? :) You can really sense the isolation and cold under these grey skies and muted tones. That small touch of yellow however, makes for a good focal point, and added bonus of a colorful reflection. Lots of texture and character contained withing these aged walls, this would actually be a nice walk along. Hope you eventually found some life forms in this town in the dead of winter. ha Enjoy the new day. Take care.

Wonderful picture with this old street with these facades have been spending so many years and giving a splendid textures, I like the good perspective street, vanishing on the curve, the winter snow is a nice touch.
Splendid sharpness and good light.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy the week.
All the best.

this place seems to be right up my alley! haha
that yellow house at the end really catches my attention. looks like there are plenty of rustic looking structures here.
and yes, it would be nice to have people in the scene, local people, but what can you do? you can't have everything.
good capture of real life

A timeless town and picture. The diagonal
lines of the street creates a nice depth.
Composition and light management are good.
