Photographer's Note

This street in the old part of the city of Thessaloniki meanders downwards to the town centre.
The crown jewels of the old city are the old Byzantine city walls, the castles and the watchtowers. But the small streets are beautiful too. They have their own charm: brightly painted houses, little shops, classic pavement, roaming streetdogs (yes, no problem here, they’re mostly friendly). This pic ain’t pin-sharp but I quite like how it captures the atmosphere of this old part of town and how it amplifies the descending orientation by the powerlines and the pointed fence. I didn’t go all the way on the DOF to prevent making the background too cluttered. 28 mm.
PS-E2 tech: saturated, boosted the yellows, sharpened, fillflashed the pavement, darkened the fence.
