The Inhabitants of the Old Town · 16 pics

in Black And Whitelast year (edited)

In many European cities there is a historical part of the city called the Old Town. As a rule, this is the area from which the whole city once appeared and grew. The Old Town has always played an important economic role for a modern city being a place of attraction for tourists from all over the world. For me, the name Old Town is associated, first of all, with the Greek city of Rhodes.

Во многих городах Европы есть историческая часть города называемая Старым Городом. Как правило, это район, из которого когда-то появился и вырос весь город. Старый Город всегда играет важную экономическую роль для современного города, являясь местом притяжения туристов со всего мира. Лично у меня, название Старый Город ассоциируется, в первую очередь, с греческим городом Родос.

Today I would like to share pictures taken in different years — in the pre-pandemic era, I managed to visit Rhodes several times. These are pictures of the inhabitants of the Old Town: locals, shopkeepers, restaurant workers, and tourists. I made black and white images on purpos trying to create an atmosphere that you get into when visiting the Old Town.

Сегодня я хотел бы поделиться фотографиями, снятыми в разные годы — в допандемийную эпоху я успел побывать на Родосе несколько раз. Это фотографии обитателей Старого Города: туристов, местных жителей, владельцев магазинов и работников ресторанов. Я специально сделал черно-белые изображения, стараясь создать атмосферу, которая обволакивает вас при посещении Старого Города.

The pictures were prepared in several stages: the choice of style and filters, processing in the Lightroom, as well as the subsequent imposition of a special filter with a bias for an old film — it seemed to me that there was no need for excessive sharpness in such photos.

Фотографии были подготовлены в несколько этапов: выбор стиля и фильтров, обработка в Лайтрум, а также последующее наложение специального фильтра с закосом под старую киноплёнку — мне показалось, излишняя резкость в таких фотографиях ни к чему.

That's what the inhabitants of the Old Town of Rhodes were like a few years ago. I hope you liked my pictures. Thank you for visiting my blog!

Вот такими были обитатели Старого Города Родос несколько лет назад. Надеюсь, вам понравились мои картинки. Спасибо, что заглянули в мой блог!

Old Town, Rhodes, Greece.

Great street photography. Old parts of every town are always much more photogenic than newer ones, I guess.

I agree with you. Thanks a lot for your feedback. 😊

Beautiful set of photographs, I am impressed with the excellent inclusion of grain and low contrast in many of these photos. The result is frankly attractive. Very nice!

Many thanks for your kind words and feedback 👍 I am glad you liked my pics 😊

The beautiful sight made me smile looking at her

Thanks for the comment, although, to be honest, I didn't really understand what it was about. 😊

Yay! 🤗
