THEME DAY-my favorite part of town

This may not really look like a part of town, but it is. Above is a long-lens shot of houseboats on the Sava River and a boat speeding to the New Belgrade side of the shore. I like this area, because although it is within a city, it seems like you're far out of town.

Reminds me of the houseboats in Seattle. It's a micro world in the city.

Bibi, thank you for this one. Very different!

Knowing that this is within the city, makes it quite special... One would believe that you are far into the countryside. Great life shot, P.

Bises,

It is actually very nice to see something so peaceful in such close proximity to city life!

Alexa said...

Don't blame you for loving this! You and your long lens have captured it beautifully, I'm sure.

Lovely choice, Bibi. I like the way you've cropped the image, too -:)

A lovely shot, Bibi. I think many people in cities look for a peaceful scene and this is - you'd not know, looking at those trees, you are in a city.

This looks so peaceful.

Even though I live near the Danube, We do not take an advantage of that distance, except for walking and enjoying the river. Do not have a boat but took a ride in a water taxi that we had two years ago to Ada from Branko's bridge.

Appreciate your choice for the theme, Bibi, and I really love that image. Very moving!

Your photo definitely has a strong WOW factor. What an amazing place, it looks so remote and wild. And to think that it's right in town... The houseboats are great. They give a very primitive edge to the image.

Fabulous ... and quite the contrast to the other photos you've shared of Belgrade

Virginia said...

You are right, it does seem to be in some remote village. Great shot Bibi.

This is great! I like your idea of a hidden city very much. The river is the heart of many cities, so this is perfect.
