THEME DAY--Pink!


Some days the Fates smile upon me.  Upon learning that the September theme for City Daily Photo blogs is pink, I set out in search of....pink.  It's not the best time of year to look for this color, but lo and behold, whom did I find on Belgrade's Bohemian quarter street, Skadarlija, but a Belgrade legend, Zika Obretkovic. I tried sneaking a shot of him, but he saw me, and said, "Take a REAL photo, please!" and posed with Bibi, who was sporting her pink collar.  Zika has been around 'forever', walking around Belgrade's center, making people happy, and playing his flute, like he does on the link below.

And today he was wearing pink!
