Zagreb - The Streets

AddThis 6 by TVS!

Like many other cities, Zagreb offers many interesting motives to photograph. However, hunting the right moment and shooting position may prove to be interesting and sometimes even exhausting game!

I'll ad here some images from numerous walks, tram or bus rides through Zagreb streets, avoiding the usual pattern of motives and angles found on so many other publicly available images.

All images here have been taken with Canon EOS 350D, and Canon EF 85mm / 1.8 lens, at lowest possible ISO sensitivity, high shutter speed and apperture as open as possible for the situation.

After taking the RAW images, I applied only the very basic image processing, like croping, resizing and signing them.

To see any image enlarged, just left click the mouse on it.

Pope Benedikt XVI of Roman Catholic Church, took a two days visit to Zagreb, Croatia, on June 4th to 5th, 2011. Following images were taken on the evening of Holy Father's return to Vatican! 

Crowd takes one more chance to thank Holy Father for His visit.
Palmotićeva street, all the way down to Branimirova street.

Motorcade passes five minutes before "papamobile" 
appears nearby old Vlaška street.

Holy Father finally appears in his special vechicle,
Mercedes Benz "papamobile", driven by his Swiss Guardians! 

Let's walk! Good place to start, city's main square - Trg Bana Jelačića ( Ban Jelacic Square)!
