I think this man was not actually watching me, but the little dog who lives outside this bistro, who was playing with Bibi.
Or maybe he was watching me. But no invitation to come in for a mulled wine or coffee...

Cheating a bit on the X this week...
This tall fellow caught my eye the other day....and then when I showed someone the photo, they told me he is Predrag Drobnjak, a former basketball player for the Serbian team Partizan.
Anyway, he's tall..six feet eleven inches, yes....I looked him up.

About two weeks ago I caught the older gentleman feeding pigeons in Kalemegdan Park. I printed out a photo and have been going back to the park to find him, but so far, no luck. The sweet lady in the bottom photo was very happy I took her photo....gotta print one out for her, too.

A mural dedicated to the film "Who's that singing over there?" (Ko to tamo peva?) that you can read about in English on this link.
The film is a dark comedy about a group of travelers in a bus to Belgrade in 1941, during the last days of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, just before the Axis occupation.
See other murals on Monday Murals.
NOTE: I should have pointed out that this mural isn't advertising the film itself, but rather a restaurant by the same name.

There's an observation tower in Kalemegdan Park that is usually closed when I walk early in the morning.
Got going a bit later one day recently, and it was open. Seeing the same views, or almost, from higher up, is a thrill.

One of those times when I took a rather good accidental shot. Somehow I switched on my double exposure button.... Not sure how I did that....
Anyway, the first shot I think was of a pigeon flying off and the second (which I had no idea would be part of a double exposure) was this hooded crow who had been perched on that 'pedestal'. Like many birds I want to photographic in still position, as soon as he saw my zoom, he took off. I am convinced birds think it's a gun.
Anyway, here's the result.

Both 'very unusual' and 'eye-catching are these girl's tights.
I have no idea why she hopped up on top of a trash bin. She stayed there for quite a while, thank you, girl, for me to photograph her in her wild (literally) tights.

Both are pretty much unequaled (or unequalled, if you're British). Novak Djokovic, the tennis champ, and Nikola Tesla, the 'electric' champ.
And I guess Spiderman is pretty unequaled, too; not sure about Peppa Pig on the left.

The Russian cartoon, Masha and the Bear, is tremendously popular here. My granddaughter adores it, and has a Masha doll and the Bear. To quote Wikipedia:
"Masha is depicted as a precocious, happy, kind, and mischievous little girl, while the bear is a fatherly retired circus performer that tries to keep Masha out of trouble but often ends up the unintended victim of her mischief. There are a number of supporting characters in the series, including Masha's cousin, a penguin adopted by the Bear, a young panda cub who is the Bear's cousin, a tiger that worked with the bear in the circus, and a female bear that is the object of the bear's affections, along with a rabbit, squirrels and hedgehogs, two wolves who live near the bear's house, and a pig, goat, and dog who live in Masha's front yard."
Have a look at this cute video.

The population of Belgrade's mascot, the sparrow, has been declining, due to too many pigeons and crows, which overpower the little guys in a struggle for food.
Recently in Tasmajdan Park these sparrow houses were placed in several trees. At least the sparrows won't have to hustle for housing; tiny holes!

Two males and a female duck paddle their way through a reflection from a floating restaurant on the Sava river in Belgrade.

Not a real comet, but a jet plane, I think, or perhaps I've spotted a UFO and didn't know it.
I opted to say it was a comet, since today is Friday the 13th... Historically, comets were thought to be harbingers of bad luck. For example, the Bayeux Tapestry shows a comet when Harold of Essex snatched the English throne from William of Normandy, soon to be known as The Conqueror.
Are you superstitious? Will you be cautious today?

Mother Nature arranged this.
