Two Faces

Did you find the second one? Both faces are quietly contemplating the street below. My guess is that the elderly lady on the balcony has lived in this building a long time, perhaps she was born and raised there. Though the building's facade is in dire need of repair, at least someone has installed air conditioning for her, which she has undoubtedly appreciated during Belgrade's hot, hot summers over the past few years.

Love these kinds of photo! Was she watching you take the picture? The building does look quite old and perhaps in need of some renovation.

Took me a while, but I spotted the second face! Superb photo btw :)

Marvellous photo esp. in B&W. The woman has a wonderful face. The 2nd is a bit stoney...I noticed the airconditioning too. I do hope the roof is in good repair.

So many buildings in need of repair over there, it is sad.
Even a few plants to attract birds and butterflies... nice

Like Marley, I didn't immediately find the second, stony, face. But I much prefer the wonderfully expressive face of the woman who lives here. Great shot—especially in b&w.

Ja sam zivjela u slicnom stanu u Bgu par godina, iako je zgrada (ona koju si slikala za mene - hvala jos jednom) odrpana do bola, ipak to ima nekog sarma.

I really like your photographic style. You really capture interesting moments and features.
I see both faces.

This looks very good in black and white. Without the air con it could have been a very old photo.
