ABC Wednesday "H' for "houseboats again"

I keep reading in a number of people's blogs that spring has arrived in their area, but it's slow in coming here in Belgrade. Okay, I know it's not supposed to officially arrive until the 20/21st, but still. This is a photo of two houseboats on the Sava that won't be visible from where I took them once the trees get leaves. I want color! Green!

I posted another ABC Wednesday about houseboats right here .

It will come eventually! This is a beautiful photo. Really wintry (sorry!)

I'm going away for a few days and read on the forum that you'll be one year old on Saturday. I'll congratulate you now - Congratulations!

I thoroughly enjoy your blog and your photos are inspiring. I know you have had a difficult time recently, it must have been a struggle to carry on blogging at times. I'm pleased you have. Keep up the excellent work.

All the best
marley :)

Love houseboats, though I don't know that I'd want to live on one. No grass to cut, that's something. They do look a bit isolated and cold in this photo, though.

Hope Spring springs soon for you.

Another great sky.

Hi Bibi, I want green too. I want warmer weather. Here in the Bay Area, it has been raining for quite a while with the last few days nice and sunny but very cold.

I think I would love to live on a houseboat for a while! I enjoyed your second installment of the floating homes!

I don't blame you for wanting green. Its so alive. I hope it comes soon for you.

Tash said...

But, but if it was green it wouldn't be this amazing photo. Really striking!

PS - you can see where the naive painters got their inspiration.

I am pretty sure that if you look carefully in one little corner you will discover some tiny little green leaf coming out.

I like the shot by the way... with the light coming from above.

I secretly don't like all of those posts about Spring! I'm freezing and grumpy!

Great photo, I love those boat-houses. It must be wonderful to live in one of those.

Take Care,Tyra

Not the green yet, but what you've given us is a very effective winter shot of that big moody sky and the cold, silver Sava. Yep, the darkened houseboats look colder yet. Well done, Bibi!

What a beautiful photo. It looks like a painting. I like the almost monotone look.

When I first saw pictures, I thought it was interesting. Now I'm curious to know how common it is to live on the river.

I want green, too. I've seen signs of spring, but am hungering for more.

Great photo!

Chuck Pefley said...

Let's see ... perhaps a green filter? Or leave the cheese on the table for a few days? Or a visit to the paint store? All kinds of options for green -:)

Nice shot. Almost black & white appearance. We are having the driest winter on record. Everything is brown and fire is a constant danger. We need rain.

So much winter everywhere! This is a beautiful shot - I've always yearned to spend a few years in a houseboat! Great topic!

Marie-Noyale said...

Waiting for the green too ,but I think you are doing pretty good meanwhile!!
This is Beautiful.

At least you don't have any snow!

This image makes me not long for spring with the cool crisp winter light.
