Flashback Friday: Dubrovnik

While I was studying veterinary medicine in Berlin, CD took part in a work project in the summer of 1973 that took place in Cavtat, Yugoslavia. It was summer vacation from school for me, and I was able to tag along. We took a weekend trip across the bay to Dubrovnik and spend an unforgettable few hours in that lovely city. This is a street portrait that I made of a pair of local women. The camera was my old Pentax Spotmatic and the lens a Pentax Takumar 135mm. The slide film was probably Afgachrome.

  2. Lovely image, caught the charecters and location well…..Funny isn’t it in 1973 the term Street Photography only applied to those photographers who operated at holiday locations and snapped you as you walked along the promenade, selling the picture to you an hour later from a little kiosks. They disappeared, but now it seems Street Photography is an art form all of its own!

      I’m liking it more and more, too. I’ve just created a new tag for this and will be posting others that I’ve done recently. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Lovely photo. It was about then that I bought my first Spotmatic – the lenses of which I have pressed into service on my DSLR. I turned down an extended family trip to Yugoslavia that same year, and while the choice I made set me on a direction in life I don’t regret, I would have loved to go to Dubrovnik. Very nice to see such a great scan of a slide from then. Makes me think I should be digging out some of my slides to see if they would be worthy of scanning.
