STANDING OUT

 

This building dates frim the Sixties and is in the Brutalist art style. Not so attractive, but apartment layouts are great and ut is definitely sturdy. Someone has chosen to beautify their terrace and I hope it will catch on.

PASSED ON


 Strawberry shortcake made like my grandmother did is seasonal comfort food for me. No one makes it like this here, but I have passed on the recipe to my Serbian daughter-in-law. Now it is still a family favorite.

A GOOD SIGN


 This pigeon landed not far from me in the park and just stared at me. Most of Belgrade's pigeons are gray and unattractive. I hope it is a good sign...

WAITING FOR THE PHARMACY TO OPEN


 This fellow was reading a flyer while waiting for the pharmacy behind him to open. Nothing, special; just a slice of life.

BACK IN BELGRADE

 

Returned home just a few days ago; caught up in sorting out stuff for upcoming move (still in Belgrade), doing laundry, and I hope soon to be editing photos.

In the meantime, this dress in front of a thrift shop across the street caught my eye. A retro one; my mother wore a similar one for special occasions.

YANKEE IN NICE

 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 posts from me until I return to Belgrade.

MY CHERRY SMOOTHIE


 Looks not so nice, but it was delicious. Trying to clear out my refrigerator before a short trip to France.  I may be only sporadically posting for a while.

MEDITATION

 




It has been such beautiful weather the last week. People take advantage of the warmth and sun in different ways. While playing ball with my dog, I came upon this girl meditating.

NIGHT LILACS


 The light from a nearby street lamp has altered their color, but these lilacs are still beautiful.

DIPPING INTO MY ARCHIVES....


 Desperately trying to finish up a lot of stuff before a 10-day trip next Tuesday. One of my tasks is uploading a plethora (love that word) of photos from all my cds and two smaller externals to my big hard drive. Taking me ages, but I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Dipped into my archives for this one. Street fair in Seattle a number of years ago. Which number, I am not sure.

STILL LIFE


 A still life at a local café and there is still life in these slightly faded carnations. 😉

RED BOW


Back to color  now, with some black and whites here and there.  This raging red bow screamed at me to take its picture, so.....

THEME DAY APRIL 2024 --MEDICINE


 I took medicine literally. Here are my vitamins (a kind of medicine...) and a couple other cold, headache killers. In the middle is something I have avoided having.... I associate it with 'old people,' but my daughter  insisted I get it when I had some infection and had to take another pill for a month....  But it may come in handy for my vitamins, etc. while traveling.

By the way, you see the multivitamins are For Her. I goofed once and bought For Him, and saw no difference, ha.

See other Theme Day medicines RIGHT HERE.

DEDICATION

  Just noticed this mural on a nearby street where I don't usually walk. Looks freshly done. On the upper right it reads "Street He...
