Reflections weekend-Tesla's ashes

A few weeks ago I visited the Nikola Tesla Museum in downtown Belgrade. A place worth visiting if you come; tours are scheduled in English.

The gold ball above, so they say, houses Nikola Tesla's ashes.

See Newtown Daily Photo for other reflections!

I'll go to the museum for sure if I'm ever in the area. I think Tesla was a fascinating man.

I expect sparks to be coming out of it! My friend Ljiljana's 13-yr-old son, Nikola :), learned a lot about his namesake, and was telling me all about him earlier this year. Fascinating, brilliant man.
I like the unusual angle of the reflection (most of the time it's down or facing straight at us)...you always have an innovative twist to memes.

An electric car, named after Tesla, is being manufactured here in the Bay Area.

Tesla was a fascinating genius and probably misunderstood for most of his lifetime. This is a lovely shot, Bibi, and an excellent reflection -- so creative!

Poussière nous revenons à la poussière,
Mais par pitié laissez-nous le faire,
Dans une petite boule de métal poli, Oui oui.

Great picture. I'm actually discovering your blog, and I really enjoy what you're posting there.
