Photographer's Note

The name Piran is said to be derived from the word for fire. Piran sticks out of Slovenia into the Adratic Sea which can be seen from the castle in Miramare (very near the Trek Earth exhibit in Italy).

It is always great fun to enjoy the old pedestrianized streets in a place like this. There are hundreds of years of untold stories and dozens of generations that have lived within these quiet walls.

technique: The soft blur effect on this image wasn't from any fancy post processing. I had not noticed that I had bumped the macro focus switch to ON for most of my day here, but luckily I was happy with the result - softness, especially where there were bright patches of light.
