Travel Scan: Nessebar


This was taken in the ancient town of Nessebar, Bulgaria, on the Black Sea Coast. Nessebar was once a Greek colony settled by Dorians at the beginning of the 6th century B.C. The ancient part of the town is situated on a peninsula connected to the mainland by a man-made isthmus.
I liked the black silhouettes against the blue sky and terra cotta tile roofs.

    I love the photo, but what are they doing?

    • I have no idea! Fixing the ancient roof, maybe?

        Not sure I would want to walk around on that roof. I had a job one summer in college painting houses. Mostly I did the trim work since I wasn’t as strong as the guys, but I did have one terrifying day. I was on my back on a small roof painting the eave above me. Of course the roof was at a slant and I had to wedge my feet to keep me in place. I was only two stories up, but I was so glad when that day ended. And my legs were so tired from keeping me in place.

      • I have a thing about heights, so could never do that job, TB. We had a lot of hailstorms when I was a kid, so my dad replaced the roof shingles at least twice. Thank heaven he and his friends never fell off.

        I’m not a fan of heights either. I was shaking the entire time that day. Still gives me the willies to think about it.

    Those silhouettes give it something mysterious.
    Btw -I’m taking the course Photo Meditations with Suannah Conway at the moment.
