SKYWATCH-- the blue hour

L'heure Bleue by Guerlain is my favorite perfume, but lacking that fragrance at the moment, I've settled for an early evening blue hour at Seattle's Golden Gardens.

Lovely mural on Capitol Hill here in Seattle. I don't know who this represents, but he apparently is no longer of this world.

ABC WEDNESDAY--G is for Golden Gardens

Golden Gardens is a large park in Seattle where I am currently visiting family. It is indeed well-named.

ABC WEDNESDAY "F" is for "Flowers"

Where are the flowers, you might ask?  Only a mini-splotch of red the square that is called "Square of Flowers" was renovated, but "Where have all the flowers gone?"

Tuk-tuks in Belgrade

This is Milan who drives this maxi tuk-tuk here in Belgrade. 12 euros per person for a sightseeing tour of about an hour and  a half. I am sorry I am leaving Belgrade this Saturday for a US visit, but will definitely tour around at a later date.

In the woods....

Nice white mushrooms....but I think they're not edible and am not about to try....

Alone and maybe forgotten

A lonely little lion cub, forgotten (who knows for how long) at Raca monastery. Someone's keeping an eye on him, though.

SKYWATCH--leavin' on a jet plane...

This is an early morning shot of Saint Sava's Church here in Belgrade, taken just before I boarded a train for a short three-day trip in-country.

 But what about 'leavin' on a jet plane..."? Well, tomorrow I'm off for the US, and not by train.

Another one from my short train trip recently here in Serbia.

This railroad employee's uniform looks really impractical, especially the shoes.

ABC WEDNESDAY - "E" is for "entomologist'

Caught this entomologist calling in to report a very large ladybug on the pole next to me in one of my favorite cafes....

I went back the next's still there, haha.

The flag bearer

If I hadn't looked up, I wouldn't have seen this flag bearer...or maybe he is a pole vaulter, in which case he might have vaulted down right in front of me.

A three-day trip to visit some friends in Uzice (OOO-zheet-say), a three+ hour train ride from Belgrade.

Had a fantastic time; lots of nature walks, sights, good food!  

Here's a shadow for you...see more on SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY.

Took a short road, or rather, train trip last few days.  I had not traveled on a train in Serbia for YEARS, and the one I was on was a vast improvement. In the reflection you can see old train wagons reflected in the window of my new train.  "Srbija Voz" means "Serbia Train."

SKYWATCH--the selfie

No, I'm not in the selfie, but this pair was deeply engrossed in taking selfies on a nearby rooftop. Little did they suspect that I was around.

This month's theme is:  black. Not a color we usually associate with August. This labrador has enjoyed a dip to cool off, and is now 'parked' to dry off.
