Afternoon Sunlight in Korčula and Dubrovnik, 2004
A couple of rediscovered photos dug out of the archives today, of the fortified town of Korčula and Dubrovnik’s old town, from when I was backpacking Eastern Europe in 2004. With a terribly low quality digital camera (some unknown brand) I still managed to capture something I like in these shots, proving that you don’t need all the bells and whistles to get good holiday snaps.
This first picture is of the ancient fortified town of Korčula, also known as ‘the Venice of Croatia’. Less than 300 people live on this tiny island, built to defend the waterway between Korčula and mainland Croatia.

The second photograph is from further down the Adriatic coast, in the striking city of Dubrovnik. Once the medieval capital of Croatia, this walled city along with its wonderful buildings and fountains was built using local marble. The streets are shiny and polished from the feet of its inhabitants over the last 2000 years.
