Many aspects of life in small, sleepy towns

have not changed in generations. 

Wandering through  cobbled, narrow streets,

away from the usual hustle and bustle of big city life,  I became very nostalgic  for this seemingly unhurried, simple life of small conversations,  afternoon siestas and neighborly greetings. 

In those photographs, taken within the last few years,  but aged in post-production, I can see the past in the present.
