One-third for sale...

Inheritance laws are a bit weird here. If you have no specific will, your property will be divided equally between your family. For example, the wife will get one third, and if you have two kids, each child will get one third.

Looks like somebody wants to sell their one-third....  Awkward....

Well, there IS a   reflection in the door window here, not a knockout one for sure, but I think the mailbox is really cute.

SKYWATCH--clouds over Zemun

This photo in color, was just so-so, but I think it looks much better in black and white.

The Green Door

I have a thing for old doors.....  This one I found in Belgrade's adjacent municipality of Zemun.

ABC WEDNESDAY "K" is for "Kelpie"

 A kelpie is defined as "a water spirit of Scottish folklore, typically taking the form of a horse, reputed to delight in the drowning of travelers."   

No kelpie in sight here, since these folks might not be so safe....

The Walker

As I type this a few days early, it is raining...but will it be when you're reading this?  "Setac" means "walker".

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--country fellow

Almost all of this photo is a shadow, except for the ray of light on the grass.

This typical country fellow was standing in the garden of a restaurant in the village of Irig, Serbia.

WEEKEND REFLECTIONS--the ceiling on the spoon

Said it before, and I'll say it again:  "I am never bored when I have my camera," which is just about always.  Had lunch in a lovely restaurant just outside of Irig, about an hour's drive from Belgrade.  Definitely a 'slow-food' place, not that I was in a hurry, but like I said, I'm never bored, and will find a decent photo just about anywhere.

Nothing noteworthy here; just pretty, with a little Orton effect....

Last weekend I took a day trip with some friends to the small town of Irig, about an hour's drive from Belgrade.

The main street was beautifully kept-up, and even this tilted lamp post looks good.

ABC WEDNESDAY "J" is for "Just say YES!"

A lot of people I know (elsewhere than here) do not eat a lot of garlic or hot peppers, but they are both very good for you.  All  kinds of health benefits, if you get used to them.  Here people chomp them all the time.

Garlic keeps vampires away, too, or so I have been told....

While some friends were in town, we took an open-top bus tour of the city and passed by this building with a hand-painted wall ....  I admire the person's attempt to  beautiful the facade, which needs a good cleaning (now and before...), but maybe a second coat would have been a good idea....

MONDAY MURALS....the floating restaurant

Belgrade has lots of floating restaurants, cafes, and night clubs, but not all have colorful murals...

On my way to the Indian Embassy the other day I passed by this elaborate gate.  Something I would not have noticed if I had been driving....decided to not fight the traffic and so took the trolley.

David Lynch in Belgrade....

Went to an exhibit of photographs by David Lynch, the well-known producer, screenwriter, film maker, and photographer, too, best remembered (at least by me) for his hit series Twin Peaks.

The photos were both inspirational and a bit kinky at the same time.

ABC WEDNESDAY "I" is for "itchy"

Sitting in the bus on the way to the Indian Embassy (another I) and caught this fellow giving his head a little scratch.  He was perhaps itchy, but I also had an itchy shutter finger.

After having the lunch I showed you yesterday, we took a walk alon the river. There was no explanation on this mural, but it recalled simila...
