The streets and alleys of Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa, the oldest of the so-called ‘three cities’ lies within the Grand Harbour of Malta.  Even though a name change to Vittoriosa some four centuries ago, many of the local Maltese stlll refer to this city as ‘il Birgu’.

I loved walking the narrow streets and alleys of this beautiful city - with its limestone buildings and cobblestone streets. At one point, I came across a street vendor going down the street, calling out to the residents advertising his fresh produce.

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
