Liqeni Paskuqan (Surburbian between Tirana and Kamza)
I was on the way back from the Lake Bovilla Area. After some strange accidents with my bike - crash on a gas station, broken chainand repairing by the helpful „Uncle“ in Kamza - thanks again! - I landed there and could take a breath and enjoyed the peaceful scene.
(I like the peacefullness, the wideness of the landscape and the light and the indecision of the guy with the red cape.)
I liked the calm, the light, the vastness of the landscape and the indecisiveness of the guy with the red basecap. And the strange slightly irritating perspective 
caused by the concrete slope. That seems to reinforces) the helplessness and forlornness of the scene.
I know the difficult situation of the Albanian Youth, but I could note - next to all misery and hopelessness -   a lot of potential, honesty and hospitality too. That makes me hopefully. All the best.

Serie "At the Lake Ohrid - Liqeni Ohrid"
All photos were shot in and around Pogradec, Eastern Albania at the Lake Ohrid. I want to show the uniqueness and beauty of this lake and the contrasts and overlaps of nature and human impact there.
Lake Ohrid - Liqeni i Ohrit is a lake which straddles the mountainous border between the southwestern part of North Macedonia and eastern Albania. It is one of Europe's deepest and oldest lakes, with a unique aquatic ecosystem of worldwide importance, with more than 200 endemic species.
North Macedonia's side of Lake Ohrid was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979. Albania's side of Lake Ohrid was also designated UNESCO world heritage status in 2019. 
In Albania, the coastal portion of the lake holds Managed Nature Reserve status. In North Macedonia, a portion of the lakeside is part of the Galičica National Park.
