This is a back street in Xlendi. The fishermen have their working things all around in a charming chaos.
Xlendi is a village in Malta situated in the south west of the island of Gozo. The name is probably derived from the word "xelandion", a type of Byzantine vessel which may have anchored in the port. It is surrounded by the villages of Munxar, Fontana and Kerċem. Xlendi falls under Munxar for administrative purposes, though it does have its own coat of arms and motto. From March 2010, Xlendi will be having its own 5-person "mini council", which will be responsible for the main activities of the area.

un'altra bella strada dell'Isola di Gozo, inserita in una bela composizione ricca di colore e ottima nitidezza.
Un piacevole quadretto di questa bella località.
Ciao e buona settimana

hello Daniel ,
Despite of the garbages , this is a superb and charming corner of street . I like especially the lighting and the tonalities of the old walls .

On trouve souvent de plus beaux sujets dans les ruelles derrière les grandes avenues touristiques, comme cette petite rue ou rien n'est camouflé et ou les gens vivent. J'aime beaucoup la lumière qui baigne le quartier.

A simple but attractive backstreet that shows the signs of daily life and is presumably well away from the normal tourist trail. The large blue door nicely counterbalances the sky above. Good warm and cool tonal contrasts.

I am so jealous. I did not have enough time to stroll through the little towns and their atmospheric streets. Very charming photogenic corner well captured here. Well balanced exposition of the sun lit and shaded areas.
Very well seen and captured,

This back street is very quiet. The buildings are all yellow-ish, but the doors are colorful, interesting.

This is a street where people live and work, so it may not be as tidy as the shopping streets. But the colours are great. Blue, green and red doors in the slightly faded yellow walls. Superb, and very well seen.

Keep posting these photos from Malta, loving every one of them.
that blue door really stands out well doesn't it, especially with the contrasting sandstone.
its great to see that ugly subjects and back alleys make it onto TE, because they are still worthy of photos.
excellent light, colors, and subject

un altro angolo ripreso in modo interessante, la tua verticale ci mostra le caratteristiche di questi vicoli con le porte molto colorate, che hai ben posizionato nella composizione.

Vision différente et originale de malte avec cette ruelle où règne un certain désordre.

Excellent light on this little street. Colours are really nice. The garbage is not a problem for me in this picture, you show the reality and I really appreciate it. It's unfortunately part of dailylife. Great sharpness.

The blue door yellow ochre wall and blue sky compliment each other superbly to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Excellent sharpness and nice saturation and choice of a vertical format. Good perspective and composition with excellent density. Tfs!

Je n'ai pas visiter le village et je suis contente de voir cette présentation, une rue charmante même avec tout ce désordre c'est ce qui donne aussi de la vie, j'aime la porte bleu, très belle image

Nice corner of this backstreet of Xlendi you show here. The ochre yellow colour of the facade & the strong blue contrasts well. Exposure well handled with the shaded and lit up parts. Well done!
