MONDAY MURALS--the baker king

Despite the sign on the right that says 'furrier,' this man represents a baker....there's a  bakery nearby.

WEEKEND REFLECTIONS--tulips in the window....

Tulips in the window and a reflection of greenery from across the street.

A sailboat's mast and sail echo the bridge in the background.  Taken while crossing the Sava River to Ada, Belgrade's largest river island.

Canine consideration

...or rather, Consideration FOR Canines.  Someone thought of this clever water dish and stuck it on a tree.  Sidewalks get really hot for little padded feet.

ABC WEDNESDAY---"C" is for "Chillin''

He may be just out there chillin', but he's definitely not cool, at least in the temperature sense.  He'd be better off in one of those apartments with the air conditioner on.

When it was cooler

A bit of an older shot from the days when you had to wear a jacket. Now it's  blazing hot....

MONDAY MURALS--Outer space in an alley

This brightly-colored mural caught my eye while I was walking. Almost shouted to me to come down the alley, but I didn't.

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--backwards...

Just when I needed a shadow one turned up!

In Serbian, 'photo' is spelled 'foto', and in this case, the letter on your right is the 'f' in Cyrillic.

With all this red, one could easily imagine I took this last Christmas, but  no.

These red balloons were simply part of a  recent window display in a perfume shop.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"B" is for "By my side"

I was out again without my big camera, naughty me, so this is a phone shot.

I've seen this couple several mornings in a row....I am wondering if they spend the night in the park. I hope not.

WEEKEND REFLECTIONS--my friend's terrace

My friend Jasmina has a great rooftop terrace. I love to go see her anyway, and in the summer we have a cool drink there....  This is a reflection of the sunset behind me.

She's got a green thumb, too; many more plants, but they were behind me....

A threesome....

Occasionally I run across a single shoe on the street....and I always wonder how it was lost.  Here, though, there are three, and none of them match.

Never did discover the story behind these slippers, and doubt if these three will tell their tale either.

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--Šipan Island, Croatia

Taken at the port of Šipan  in Croatia. I'm not sure why, but this makes me think of a 1950s French movie.

SKYWATCH--from the Big Apple

Not a Belgrade sky, but this photo sent to me by my friend Marianne, who is from NYC and now spending the summer there, was too good to pass up.

A double rainbow over her house.  I wonder if there are two pots of gold.

Thanks to my son for this photo he sent of an arrangement of animals, though not at the zoo, made by my granddaughter.

A tea party....

The stationary Trabant

The Trabant was the iconic symbol of the now defunct East Germany, and had the reputation of being uncomfortable, slow, noisy, and a heavy polluter.  You still see them around occasionally, like this one parked on a street near me. It's always in the same place, or one space ahead or behind, and never has a parking ticket on it.....

Don't you just love how the exhaust pipe is held on?

Happy Fourth of July to my American readers.

Look at what I am  not sure....I couldn't see anything worthwhile....maybe just like the old joke:   "See?  Made you look!"

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--the girl in the mosque bookstore

A young Muslim girl looks out at the street in front of a mosque's bookstore in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
