Building in Tirana, Albania

Why Albania can be great for photographers.

Guest post from Tony Eveling (Follow on Google+)

At the end of communism in Albania, there were many very grey, uniform communist era apartment blocks lining wide boulevard style roads in the capital of Tirane.  To brighten the city up a bit, it was decided to paint the apartment blocks bright colours….the opposite of the greyness that engulfed the city before..

This building is a more subtle lime green with a checkerboard effect…but others are bright orange or purple, some are stripy and some are painted with bright patterns….

This is just a point and shoot jobby whilst walking around town…When someone sticks their head out the window…that’s always a photo opportunity!
