SKYWATCH--Air Serbia


 That's Nikola Tesla hitching a ride on this Air Serbia flight, which was returning to Belgrade's airport named after him. I hope to be heading in the other direction this fall, but most likely with another airline that has a more direct flight to where I am going.

ONE SACK--an urban still life

Artsy shot for you today. Just goes to show you that you can find a subject just about anywhere if you look. I really like how this photo turned out.

WHITE



 I had these two totally unrelated photos and I thought I would post them together, side by side. I was trying to make the cat appear as if it were looking at the bird with evil intent.

Didn't quite work out the way I wanted it, but here they are anyway.

LAW AND BUSINESS SCHOOL


 I have always liked this doorway on Belgrade's Law and Business School, just a few doors down from where I live.

MONDAY MURALS--around the corner and beyond


 This building is surrounded by murals, at least on three sides. I couldn't get to the back of it.

See other murals on MONDAY MURALS.

WEEKEND REFLECTION---the hookah pipe


 Hookah bars are fairly common here now. I don't smoke, but although I like the fragrances that I inhale when I pass by a hookah bar, I'm not sure if I'd like to try.

SKYWATCH--REEDS


 When I visited the town of Belo Blato, about 60 kms from Belgrade, I was a bit taken aback by these odd-shaped 'haystacks'.  They are not haystacks at all, but rather bundles of reeds that are later sold for roofing on various structures.

Here's a  link for you. Notice that this industry has been around a long time and that it is a fact that insects do not attack the reed stem, hence making then perfect for roofing.

RECYCLED?


 I had to dig into my archives for this one, since I don't have too many recent Belgrade photos.  Gotta get out there on the streets again, but it's hot.

Anyway, for those of you who enjoy beverages in a can, be they with alcohol or not, why not save the tops?  Ask some friends to join you....  You could create an eye-catching car like this one, and quench your thirst at the same time.

WISTERIA


 Wisteria falls in the category of my most-loved flowers, including peonies, violets, and roses.

CVIJETA ZUZORIC PAVILION


 Cvijeta Zuzoric, pronounced TSVEE-yeh-ta ZHOO-zhor-eech,  (1552=1648) was a lyric poet from what is now Croatia.  She wrote in Latin, Italian, and Croatian.  The building behind the statue is a pavilion used for art exhibits.

Wiki has this to say:  "Cvijeta Zuzorić“ Art Pavilion is an exhibition building in Belgrade, in Kalemegdan, situated in the park's section of Little Kalemegdan, next to the south-eastern front of the Belgrade fortress. It was built between 1927 and 1928 after the design of the architect Branislav Kojić, in the Art Deco architectural style."
