ABC WEDNESDAY--"H" is for "hoping"


Bad phone photo, taken at night while passing a closed bakery.

This little teddy gazes out the window and waits, hoping that his little person will come back for him....

MONDAY MURALS--Betty Boop


Betty Boop was of my mother's generation, and I was introduced to her very young. I still get a kick out of watching her old cartoons.  This mural graces a wall of a children's park.

A bit symbolic....my daughter and family have returned to the US, and the silence is deafening.

Empty nest....

ABC WEDNESDAY--"G" is for "Goin' along the tracks...."


Kind of stretching it a bit for a G this week, but it's chaotic here for the moment; family visits, departures....

Caught this fellow going along the railroad tracks near Belgrade's sports center.

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--Parasol hat!


Vacation is a time when you can dress like you want and not worry what people think. To an extent, of course.  

This lady is sporting a parasol hat, something she may not wear at home.  Maybe. See other shadows on SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY.

SKYWATCH--the old tram bridge


Taken from the quay below the Old Tram Bridge (Savski Most) in Belgrade. This area is being poshed up...quite controversial....more photos of that later on.

Chillin' on the beach


Very early every morning and later in the afternoons this dog would lie in this same spot.  Too hot for him during the day. I believe he is a Greek Shepherd or mixture thereof.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"F" is for "feet"


And very sandy feet at that, belonging to my youngest grandson.

Greetings from Nikiti, Greece.

Toit et moi


Who climbed up there to write those three words?  Some romantic, pun-loving Frenchman?  (Toi et moi=You and I vs. Toit et moi=the roof and I.)

What a contraption!


Glimpsed this contraption from the porch of my son's apartment. The girl on the right got on the seat, swung back and forth to make it advance, and toured the park.  That was it....

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--petunias in Greece


There certainly is enough sun here in Nikiti, Greece....and it casts lovely shadows over these vibrantly-colored petunias.

SKYWATCH--Nikitis, Greece


On vacation in Nikitis, Greece, and because I'm lazy on vacation, I didn't stand up to take this photo, thus avoiding the rocks in the foreground, which of course are blurry because of my unwillingness to 'rise to the challenge'.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"E" is for "eye-catching"

It's hard to pass by the Faculty of Drama in New Belgrade without taking a good look...quite an eye-catcher.

MONDAY MURALS--a bit of culture


A bit of culture for you. These two gentlemen grace the wall of a farm-type restaurant not far from Belgrade.

The man on the left is Milos Crnjanski, poet, author, and diplomat. The other is Ivo Andric, who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1961.

Culture and good food!

Okay, it's not a real shadow....but part of the play submarine is a shadow and the boy, my grandson, is a silhouette....

ABC WEDNESDAY--"D" is for "dinosaur"


Visited the dinosaur exhibit in Kalemegdan Park and was surprised to see that there was a dinosaur called the Irritator. Who knew? Certainly not me.

I had my picture taken with the sign, since some close to me think I am an irritator.

THEME DAY--Young at heart


Had to dig for this one. Too much going on now with family visits.

This elderly gentleman was enjoying a lollipop.... Why not? They're ageless.

TEXTING AT HOTEL MOSKVA

 It was 11 a.m.  This man had just finished a glass of white wine and an espresso, and now took to his phone.  And I to my camera. (I did NO...
