Burning vestments

This priest and his assistant are burning vestments, the proper way to do away with sacred religious materials.

This was taken at Aleksandar Nevski Church in downtown Belgrade.

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY---the New Cemetery

Shadows from the gate of Belgrade's New Cemetery, which is actually over a hundred years old (1868).

My husband, who died in 2008, is buried there, and today would have been our 40th wedding anniversary....

SKYWATCH --heating plant needed again

Well, just when I thought spring had sprung and all was well, it turned really cold!  Snow/hail this afternoon and I had to dig out my gloves, wool hat, and coat.

Let's hope that we won't need the heating plant much longer....

See other skies on SKYWATCH.

There's a local cafe called Red Bread (don't know why.....) and of course, red is their theme color.

ABC WEDNESDAY--O is for Odalisque

 Well, I am finally back after a really long time.  This photo was taken in Washington by my very good friend Carolynn.  It is a more modest version of Edouard Manet's painting dating 1865....

Perfect O for ABC WEDNESDAY.
