Walking through the narrow streets of Valletta can be exhausting because of the heat. Refreshing is needed so the small number of restaurants and bars are the solution. The water is not quite good but their beer is great! :P

Yes, I can see people are keeping to the shady side of the street, what a good idea! I like the atmosphere and the mix of simple but interesting architecture. A nicely presented daily life composition with good colours and sharpness.

narrow streets or alleys have something common,no matter in which city they are-namely its own charm and unique atmosphere!
Like this one!Really well captured.
Relax at the bar in shadow-looks like a great place to have a break from sightseeing and hide in shadow for a moment.
Nice and moody composition!

great shot of the narrow and a nicely cooler area in the streets of Valetta. You have captured the charm and character here so beautifully. Why drink water when you can have beer! ;-D.

I really like pictures with a human presence. I would love to sit here for a while, enjoying a coffee or maybe a beer. The buildings don't look very beautiful but the many signs on the walls and the chairs and tables still makes this narrow street look quite cosy. The colours are as nicely saturated and vivid as in your earlier shots from Malta.

Ah, everybody is searching for the shade, including the pigeon! The narrowness of the alley is very thoughtfully depicted through a tight vertical frame. Excellent details both in light and shade.
Thanks for sharing this lovely capture.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui donne profondeur et ampleur à cette composition. Les gens profitent de l'ombre pour se rafraîchir un peu. Quand même un peu surpris de voir un réservoir de propane au centre de l'allée.

A fine street shot, where the narrowness and the shadowy right side have not prevented you from showing the details of the cafe where people are sitting at tables. Your exposure and processing has balanced the light and shadow very well. I like the very strong sense of perspective, the bright red colours and the very straight verticals. An excellent capture. Valletta looks like a place worth visiting.

ces ruelles sont étroites comme le nom l'indique, mais il y a la place de chaque côté pour une table soit à l'ombre ou soleil, d'ailleurs plus de places au soleil et ce pigeon qui lui attend les miettes

yes, I read something recently when i researched about Malta, that their water is not A-Class. I wonder why that would be.
So do you EVER retreat from the narrow streets where ever you go! haha
well, this was a fine spot indeed, I would have stopped here as well.
seems like the narrow streets continue on for infinity!
love the colors and light and all the signs, nice shot.
I find that in Europe there are SO many narrow street cities....you have to understand that here in Canada, with it being SOOO large, cities are spread out over large areas. In Canada we have TOO much land, so its strange for me to see so many and such narrow passage ways, we don't have alot of that here

Hi Daniel - It seems to me that wherever you go you manage to find a delightful pavement cafe. This one is lovely, a narrow and shady street that leads all the way down to the sea. It looks like a long walk so stopping for a beer is a good idea! Have a lovely evening Rosemary

The infinitely long streets running uphill or downhill are a typical sight of Valletta that I really love. In the middle of the picture I even see one of these wonderful green typical Maltese balconies.
Splendid shot of an ordinary but very beautiful street in one of the most wonderful towns in the Mediterranean region.
Best regards, Paul

Tout le monde profite de l'ombre du balcon pour se rafraîchir, même le pigeon!Bonne photo de cette pittoresque ruelle.

quelle étroitesse de la ruelle sueprbe avec cet terrasse avec une table et les chaises, toute la profondeur voulue et la perspective splendide.
Bravo et amitié

Nice balanced composition with clarity and depth - it makes me wish I was there chilling out and sipping coffee!

Walking through narrow streets with nice bars within reach is a favourite! I think you have captured the atmosphere from this street very good. Summer, holiday heat and interesting environments, it`s all there. Nice colors and light, tfs!
Have a nice weekend!
