One of us

Walking along the bank of the Sava recently and enjoying our Indian Summer, I had the pleasure to meet Marjan (MAHR-yahn), a fellow photographer, who's doing here what probably a lot of us would like to do. I certainly would, but never seem to get myself organized, with all my other daily obligations. He sells his tastefully framed and well-composed photographs for 1500 dinars, which is about $30.00, and says he manages to sell a couple each time he comes down to the riverside. The sign on the left is for his telescope that he's going to set up at twilight so that for 20 dinars a peek, folks can see the moon, Jupiter, Venus, and Mars, which he says will be visible.

Bibi,
I hope your friend does well selling his work. IT's a hard way to make money.

Interesting post. I wonder what kind of camera he is using. Film or digital and what camera brand. I am glad I am retired and no longer have to do these kinds of things.

Oh BIbi, I am just sick that we didn't plan for you to come to Paris. I would so love to see you. I guess my European geography isn't up to par. I never thought to talk to you about coming. Too late now???? Well I'll just have to win the Lottery so I can fly right back. Don't I wish!

That would be nice to see all those other planets. That's really sky watching!

Living here this kind of way for me too make a living as a photographer is out. That's why the net is a godsend. I wish him all the best in these credit crunch times. Photography and in Gary's case artwork are luxuries rather than staples. Saying that I used to be in the financail world, and well I wouldn't go back to that.

What a sweet gentleman! If I was there, I'd buy at least one from him! And what a cool addition to his "business" with the telescope.

Thanks for introducing us to one of our own.
