A Blending the Old with the New...
For Americans, this a new concept, keeping buildings and things from 12,000 years ago. What would the bulldozers do? Its old... The marriage of the old and the new in Old Town Hania is what makes the ancient walled city so dear. The new, new is not so unique.
Today there was no list of things and places to photograph, it was just taking pictures as they came. I ended up with some 650 pictures. I will share a few of them with you. This crop is organized in 3 categories, doors – windows – alleys, old with new, lines and colors, end of day. The charm of it being that behind the most dilapidated front wall there can be a beautiful home, or a restoration in progress. It seems that the most profitable trade on Hania at the moment would be that of plasterer. Remember that in taking the pictures we had no agenda, the patterns just happened.
