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 Maltesebuses 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 Valletta Regeneration Site.
*Sorry for the poor quality but this was recorded on an old DV Camcorder.
Photography has been part of my life since before I was born, my father was a keen photographer who had invested in his own developing equipment. This passion grew with every issue of Life and many other news magazines I used to read instead of doing school home work. Unfortunately I never got the chance to work for Life Magazine, Time Magazine nor any foreign news paper but I have always carried some sort of camera to capture that “Kodak Moment”. Those magazine articles taught me that only a few shots are needed to tell a story, so when combined with the cost of film and developing I learnt to take my time to think and observe before pressing the shutter. Traveling around Australia for a year in 2005 was the biggest learning boost for me. A backpacker on a tight budget, film/developing much more expensive Down Under, living in areas rarely visited by foreigners and getting around on my bicycle I patiently and carefully documented the experience. Australia is a photographers paradise!
