‘Ohrid - Time to put on your blue hour shoes’


Some people don't like it too much but I know TE has some ardent lovers of the blue hour.
So it's time again for a blue hour walk, this time through old Ohrid.

I can't explain why but from my 4 and 1/2 month journey through Asia two years ago I don’t have too much pictures taken during the blue hour.
Also when I was in South India a little longer ago, I hardly saw there a period of time that was eligible for such photos.
In contrast, I have blue hour pictures of about every place I visited in North Macedonia.

As I mentioned before, I didn't have a tripod with me. You will definitely notice that in the photos.

My main picture shows the House of the Kanevce Family in the old town near the Sveta Sofija Church (Church of Saint Sofia).

The House of the Kanevce Family has a narrow base and extends upwards where there is a large reception room on the top floor.
That room is called the čardak.
The čardak is typical of the Christian houses in old Ohrid.
Religious holidays and weddings were celebrated in that room. This out of sight of the local Ottoman authorities.
