What it’s like here

These thumbnails are so tiny, and what I want to convey is so big. And there is so much that can’t be captured on the screen – like the smell of roasting chestnuts on the street corner, or the wailing of the muezzin. I cheated a little bit and used some photos from last winter – oops, a few summer ones snuck in there too –  a few from outside Tirana. Hope you like it.

This is from Wordgirl’s meme – go check it out!

    I love these photos very much. They really do convey a lot. My favorite one was the photo of the woman looking out the woman with her laundry hanging below. I wonder what she’s thinking…

    Thank you for giving us a glimpse of the beautiful place where you live.

      Thanks so much! I like that photo too – I did feel a little creepy taking it though, sort of voyeuristic or something. I always wonder how National Geographic photographers do their jobs.

    Very cool! I like you’re pics – they are a good mix.

    I get the same ‘voyeuristic’ feeling sometimes. But anymore, there are people taking cell phone pics everywhere you turn. I need to not be so sensitive about it!
