REFLECTIONS WEEKEND--Moscow today....no...wait....

No, it's not Moscow, as you might think from the red poster behind these members of Belgrade's special forces. The poster is advertising renovations to Hotel Moskva, (Hotel Moscow) which I've shown you several times. These well-padded boys were stationed for possible reactions to a recent political protest meeting. All was peaceful....

Check out more reflections on Newtown Daily Photo.

Love that red backdrop but the sight of the shields is a bit scary!

Bon weekend,

These guys look like they're prepared for violence—glad they had none to deal with. Good capture!

A rather sobering line-up of the well-dressed civil servant.

By the way, I do like your new header photo. Very romantic -:)

Definitely out of the ordinary and unusual. Reminds of the G-20 conference in Toronto last summer.

I find it interesting that they chose to line-up in front of that particular banner. It's a photo-op if I've ever seen one. What was the political protest meeting about?
