SKYWATCH FRIDAY--traces...

A statue on the Republic of Serbia Government Building looks at the ruins of an army headquarters building, destroyed during the NATO bombing of 1999.

Great shot Bibi!

I am pleased I wasn't there when it happened...

Very dramatic picture! And a very interesting building, architecturally. I guess the army headquarters was too badly damaged to fix up? Maybe a new building there sometime?

Quite a contrast - quite a reminder....

Ah, so that's what that building is! The army hq, I mean. (I asked my boyfriend what it was and he didn't know.) :D

I like how you used the army building to frame this shot. It creates an interesting composition with the sky.

Gotta go with the consensus here—beautifully composed. And . . . nice sky!

Connaissez-vous le sketch "le telegramme?" rendu celebre par Yves Montand ... "la statue est toujours a la meme place"

Anonymous, I think actually the main army headquarters (very seriously damaged; unusable) stands just to the left of this building (in my photo). The piece you see is also some sort of army building...or was.

Therese, no I don't know Le Telegramme, mais je vais le rechercher!

The building in ruins is also a very important building as far as the architecture is concerned. I forgot the name of the architect, but the building is a landmark in the architectural way.
