Today I had an errand in Hamrun, that pleased me immensely because I had to walk the main road of foot. I have been trying to plan and walk this road up and down for a while. The shops always fascinated me. The old doors are lost due to the bombastically clad aluminium shop facades, however people still use the doorsteps to take a rest, wait for the bus or generally hand out.
I even managed to get a shot of the shop front below that has been closed since I could remember. The "British Army & Navy Bar". I am surprised it is still untouched considering everyone is trying to 'develop' all places into tasteless and soulless concrete buildings.
Then I looked up and this lady met my lens....obviously I snapped, how could I resist.
Further along the street I heard some commotion and wondered who was quarreling. Turns out it was this lady in light blue (below) speaking to someone on the phone. I wondered what was the problem but probably it is just us Maltese making a mountain out of a molehile. I was also intrigued by this lady waiting at this narrow street...who was she waiting for. What was her final destination?
I walked on and realised the woman on the doorsteps was still there waiting, or looking at passers by. She surely looked at me as you can see below.
A short 20 min walk and all these snaps in my bag...
