Shot these 2 weeks – 3 till 16 October 2016

Shot these 2 weeks – 3 till 16 October 2016 is mostly photos from around the entrance to Valletta. The government has announced that the embellishment  of this area is about to start. The milk shop, famous when we were kids for its delicious milk shake, is most probable the most popular meeting point in Malta. Every one meets near the shop.

Shot these 2 weeks – 19 September till 2 October 2016

Shot these 2 weeks – 19 September till 2 October 2016 makes up for the previous blog post. 22 photos i like made it here. As usual most are from Valletta. I managed to get a shot of an Alien posing in Valletta, a few fluffy clouds, some bright colours but also a few annoying subjects. The Speaker insists that he has the privilege to park when and were ever he wants, including the middle of Republic Street on a public holiday. Another shows the deplorable state of the entrance to Valletta.

Shot these 2 weeks – 5 till 18 September 2016

Shot these 2 weeks – 5 till 18 September 2016 has only one photo. But i choose one that is a recurring theme with this public game in Valletta. I am sure that the penis is the most popular human body part. The truck with a Twistees advert adds a Maltese touch to it.

Shot these 2 weeks – 2 till 15 May 2016

Not much for this Shot these 2 weeks – 2 till 15 May 2016 post. I chose one from Friday’s  harness horse racing night and another night shot taken from the roof of my home. There is a post with more night shots from my roof on the post titled View from my Home, Valletta.  You will also find a shot of a gorgeous little classic car, a Prefect and a couple of Valletta FC Championship celebrations. Please  have a look at the whole Valletta FC Champions Celebration photos on my dedicated Valletta FC page. I also added a shot of the Valletta Market, Is Suq tal Belt.

View from my home, Valletta

Having lived here for a little over 8 years, the view from my home in Valletta is something quite unique, at least in my opinion. True the surrounding walls are quite high on 3 sides but stepping on a small box is enough to get a better view. The 4th side faces the the Valletta  Market or as it is known in Maltese, Is Suq Tal Belt. The wall here is very low  and wide so i can sit and look down on Merchant Street and the old corrugated roof of the Market.

I have shot a few photos  over these years and my roof is also were i do photographic test of equipment and ideas but two days ago Malta was covered with fog creating an interesting effect when mixed with surrounding lights. They were all shot just before 22:00hrs and with in a few minutes. My initial intention was to capture a few shots just for archiving but i am very happy with the results.

Valletta FC Champions 2016 Funeral

Valletta FC Champions 2016 Funeral is another traditional street party held by Valletta’s supporters were every one is dressed in black and a mock funeral procession walks up Merchant street then down Republic street were fake coffins, painted in colours of rival teams, are ‘buried’.

Unfortunately i could not stay till the end but you can get an idea of the atmosphere from these few photos while the videos are on my Valletta FC Champions 2016 Funeral Videos page.

Follow the link to see the photos of the Celebrations Street Party.

 

Valletta FC Champions 2016

For the 23rd time Valletta FC were crowned Champions 2016 and as every one knows, no one throws a street party as good as Valletta’s supporters! Malta’s capital city turns into a sea of red and white flags and quite a few ‘sailor’ costumes. This sailor custom refers to Valletta’s rivals Floriana.

Short videos of the event can be seen on my Valletta Champions 2016 Video page or directly on my YouTube channel.

Hope you enjoy them!!
