    • The top photo was taken inclined on purpose. The photo with the dog was taken without being conscious of a perpendicular line when the dog paid attention to a thing. It is lovely the dog ear’s having hung down. And it is obvious that there is no strain by the state of the feet of the dog. Moreover, the decorated pictures are simple and wonderful. Of course, my post will not be a tour guide. However, I think that it was able to be the introduction of towns of Croatia because those photos were taken by the author who was a tourist.
