The story behind this image

The first day of our holiday in Croatia, and my wife Liz was immediately off to a hen party somewhere in Spilt, leaving me free to wander around, camera in hand taking in the sights, sounds and smells of this rather charming town on the Adriatic coast.

As is my habit when in a new location, I started off by photographing the usual tourist attractions, such as the waterfront and harbour, but then wandered off into the backstreets to explore and photograph the more 'natural' parts of Split.

Such as this battered old grafitti covered wooden door, set in a crumbling stone doorframe.

A reminder of faded grandeur, and to me, a much more appealing view than the areas kept nice for tourists!
