Les reveries du promeneur solitaire

Who knows what thoughts run through this old man's mind as he makes his way up Belgrade's Bohemian street, Skadarlija?  Perhaps he's read Jean-Jacques Rousseau's work in the title, or perhaps not.  He may be simply thinking about what's for lunch.

Daily Haiku
Clear your monkey mind
Concentrate on the moment
And live your life now

A wonderful slice of life shot. The cobblestones really appeal to me.

Belgrade is so timelessly photogenic. I love this picture. It could have been taken 75 years ago or yesterday.

A truly beautiful composition...the street is romantic and picturesque,the colors are superb and the old man brings it all together. This is a keeper. Frame and hang!
