In Seattle on a bus

You know me. I am always ready to sneak a shot....and I did in the bus back to Queen Anne Hill from downtown Seattle.

I thought the expressions of these two fellow passengers were so sweet.

SKYWATCH--looking westward

The statue of The Victor, along with another photographer who was waiting for a good shot, stand looking westward in Kalemegdan Park.

I am already westward==in Seattle until spring, and so soon I'll be posting from here.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"W" is for "watercolor"

It's not a watercolor, but looks like one. Took this from the quay through a ship's window, along the Sava River.

Refugees, most likely from Syria, have been welcomed in transit in Belgrade. Now that it's colder, it appears that they've received warm blankets, too.

Every little bit....

I see this lady in various parts of town, and she seems so in love with her dog, like many less fortunate people do.  I always give her something, and when she's close to my pet shop, I buy the dog food.

Actually, the holiday lights have been up here for quite some time.....nearly as early as in the US.

But anyway, most of them are pretty, so we can enjoy them longer.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"V" is for "vehicle'

A vehicle can be defined as "a thing used for transporting people or goods, especially on land, such as a car, lorry, or cart," so there you go.

These garbage dumpsters are vehicles!

Bon voyage!

This young couple are headed somewhere.....perhaps too early to leave for the end-of-the-year holidays, but I still wish them 'Bon voyage.'

MONDAY MURALS--Pippi in Belgrade

I have no idea why Pippi Longstocking is smiling from this lively wall in Belgrade's up-and-coming hotspot, Savamala.

But she definitely caught my eye.

THEME DAY--Transitions...what lies ahead

A difficult theme, or else I found it so because I had not much time to think about it.  Transition is change; some predictable, some not.

The predictable transitions are perhaps easier to cope with, if only because we have time to get used to them.  Those transitions we cannot foresee, such as suddenly being faced with a life-threatening illness, are the most challenging.

A bit like driving down life's highway.  On a clear day you can perceive sooner what lies around the bend.  I tend to think, however, that life is more like driving through the fog:  you can't always tell what lies ahead.

See more variations on this theme at THEME DAY.
