Very nice old houses in the street.I like this photo,Sonja

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 25, 2008

Where have all the tourists gone? you might ask Paula Perhaps they see me coming with my camera poised!! Would you believe, the street was briefly deserted, seconds after the shutter clicked.

I am humbled by your words of encouragement Victor, to have ones work acknowledged thus is a great honour.

I guess there is no place like home Paul, and though I understand your desire to remain in California, your memory is bound to be jogged in a nostalgic way when you see images like these

Your visit and comment is much appreciated Beatriz.

The old town is very popular with the tourists Marcello and with me also.

And I am pleased to know that you visited my gallery also Stephan, it is always a nice surprise.

Greetings and welcome Sir Hallo, that's a grand nickname you have. I appreciate your nice comments and I'm glad you liked this photo

Dear Sonja, This is the most popular little street in the town and is normally thronging with people.

Thanks folks for your visit and great comments.

I can understand the attraction of this beautiful little street and why it would normally be busy Jim but it's a magical shot with just that one person in the frame to give it scale. Excellent photo...

Best Regards,

Hello Sean, its good to chat with you once again. Of all the Whitby photos, this one I feel is, by far, my most favourite. It seems to capture the essence of the old town, more so than any of my other shots. I really appreciate your appraisal of this photo, all feedback is most welcome, thankyou Sean.

Apologies for the apparent irregular visiting Jim, more to do with Panoramio than choice: it was extremely difficult I'm sure you noticed to post comments and any attempt usually led to failure, so I had all but given up. I did call by though to view and thankfully it all appear to be getting back to normal again.

On the little street, it's a beauty alright and wonderful to see it so well preserved: one curious thing though, the doors on the white property on the left, they are so different in height while the windows appear to be on the same level?

very Best Regards,


Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 30, 2008

It has been a frustrating time for us all Sean and I will be glad when it is finished. No doubt the systems guys must be heartily fedup too.

Now this little white house with the odd doors is infact two seperate dwellings, The tallest door has a small window light above it, the other door, being lower than your average household door, looks very strange indeed. I think that a tall person would have a problem here. Perhaps it is a measure of just how far we have evolved in almost 400years.

Cheers Sean--------Jim

Hi Jim,

So lovely town sharing with us, I can't help to visit this small town and spent all day long wandering around.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on October 1, 2008

Best wishes to you.
