Carnival 2016

Carnival 2016

Carnival is here again! Valletta is once again living in fantasy for  few days. But year after year creates a problem for photographers. What do you shoot? True, floats and costumes change but not drastically and every one shoots everything anyway. Social media is already packed with photos of the same shot from the same angles. Tough but at the same time an interesting challenge. These are my 1st few from today, Saturday. Not bad, i just have to see what comes up next.

Hope you enjoy!

Valletta Terminus from City Gate

I shot this time lapse on the 24th of April 2011 from exactly near the now demolished City Gate. This was about a month and a half before the whole area was closed off to prepare for the demolition, part of the Renzo Piano regeneration of the entrance to Valletta. You can see the old Maltese buses passing around the Triton fountain and you will also realise how many people walk in and out of  Valletta between 17:00 hrs and 18:00 hrs in winter on a Sunday. More photos and videos about this regeneration project can be found on my Personal Projects Site.
