Great holmertz 2022-01-21 7:39

Hello Paul,
This looks like a nice city, better than any place I remember from Skopje. Maybe this is the only nice street...
As usual it is impossible to decide which is the best photo. They are all bright, clear, nicely composed and show us fine buildings and a pleasant atmosphere. You mention that you like WS #2 for the church tower seen along the two minarets, so I guess the colourful merchandise were placed in the foreground just by coincidence.
It's amusing to see the Turkish word 'sokak' still being used here. Usually it refers to a relatively narrow street, but Google translates Širok as 'wide'. "The wide alley" sounds a bit funny.
Have a nice evening,

Talking To holmertz: Fake or real

Hi Gert,

Thank you for your critique. Yes, it was a nice day and the men were kind and friendly. The main picture best suited the title. In fact, I showed it so that it looked genuine but the place was fake. During the day I was there alone with these three guys and the driver, but in the evenings the groups come there to ride camels or quads and have barbecue and belly dance.

I was with a group during the cruise but I had also many occasions to go alone and then I felt as if I was given wings.
You like to see the map, so it is here:

27°22'18.8"N 33°37'31.7"E

have a nice day
