The light was amazing the morning we arrived in Malta. The clouds rolled in and threatened storms which eventually arrived, but didn’t prevent my photographing this spectacular city.
The Upper Barrakka Gardens are situated near Castille Place and possess unsurpassed views across the Grand Harbour over to the Three Cities. Of special interest are the bronze group, known as ‘Les Gavroches’ (street urchins), by an early 20th century Maltese sculptor. Depicting three children hurrying forward, the idea behind this statue was the extreme hardship faced at the turn of the 20th century.
