Dubrovnik is full of character(s)

There’s nothing like a bit of street photography – a chance to capture some character portraits. And Dubrovnik is full of characters. So here’s a selection from a Dubrovnik day.

Marin Drzic, poet.

OK, so I’ve cheated a bit at the start. Not so difficult to capture this Croatian poet. But he’s got a good smile, a bullet hole in the neck (the recent war) and a shiny nose ‘cos people stroke him for luck. Clearly a character, he’s in!

Next is a nun on a shopping trip. Early morning croissants for the nunnery… Well, maybe not, but provisions must be bought, and she’s not hanging around. Off to the market…

Stuffed peppers for dinner

Once shopping is done, gossip must be shared. And there are lots of ladies doing exactly that:

Meanwhile, outside the city, the oysters are harvested for fancy restaurants. All done by hand of course.

Some have time for an afternoon stroll, whilst others have to do the chores

Making the most of the afternoon

Whilst the young ones do the chores

Someone has to do it…

As evening kicks in the youngsters kick off. First of all the good girls come out and strut their stuff.

Still gossiping of course...

And inevitably the good girls turn into the bad girls, the way of the world…

Out for some fun...

What a fantastic place! Everyone a character, and all out on the street. Couldn’t put the camera down. Loved it. If you get the chance, go.
