Three crosses and a gull

A seagull down by the Danube. There appear to be three crosses on this photo, though one is actually the top of the mast of the ship where the seagull is perched. The two real crosses are on Belgrade's main church and patriarchy, which stand across the Danube from where I took the photo.

Hi. Would that be the Saborna Crkva? Did you mean "Sava" instead of Danube?

Quite a mystical perspective! The sacred in contrast with the materialistic!

I've heard you should never cross a gull - especially if you have food in your hand!

Sorry, just playing with words.

Very interesting pic!

Hello, Anaaonymous (knez!) Yes, it is the Saborna Crkva. I think, but am not 100 percent sure, that it is still the Danube in front of the church, and it 'turns into' the Sava just shortly afterwards.

Super cool shot! That gull's beak looks very different from any I've seen in these parts. Neat markings, too. I like your 3 crosses, and wow, what a shape to that spire! We know we are in Belgrade!

Love this composition! Not everyone would have "seen" this shot—you have a great eye.

Bibi said...

Me again. I Googled and it is the Danube River, not the Sava. See this site.>

Excellent composition, Bibi!

What a nice moody, perspective that is, Bibi. Just mentioning the Danube puts me in a waltzy schmaltzy kind of mood.

How can you have lived in Belgrade for so long and not know which is the Sava and which is the Danube?


One of the crosses in the picture belongs to Saborna Church and the lower one belongs to the Patriarchy building across the street.

Doot, I know what the crosses are and to which buildings they belong, but as for the river, it's so close, and anyone can make a mistake, even you, if you see your other comment on Passageways.
