A tourist’s afternoon in Valletta

Yes i know that as a resident of Valletta the title of this blog post ‘A tourist’s afternoon in Valletta’ is not quite right but look at it from another point of view. Although I have been living here for around 9 years I still shoot on a daily basis. The light is never the same and people, shops, doors, paint etc change over time.

With Valletta 18 round the corner, Malta’s capital city is changing at such a fast rate that even residents struggle to keep up.

**All photos were shot on Agfa Vista 400 pushed to 800. Sponsored, Developed and Scanned by Darkroom Malta.

Shot these 2 weeks – 6 till 19 February 2017

Shot these 2 weeks – 14 till 27 Dec 2015 is a mix from around Valletta and Sliema. No particular project or theme, just random walking around and shoot what I fancy. La Valletta is here again together with Valletta’s pigeons, a crane and directions to the loo.

Clown

This clown in Valletta has been on mind for some time. Sitting in the same place 24/7 for the past weeks i wonder how many people have noticed him. I do not know the artist who created this work but i was drawn to the contrast between the lines, shades of colour and the curves creating the clown.
