Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Scenes

In a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo that brings a street to life.

Document the movement (or stillness) of a street: tell a story with your snapshot, capture a scene that reveals a bit about a place, or simply show us where you live — or a path you often take.

~ Cheri

We are going to take a gentle stroll along the bank of the River Ljubljanica in Ljubljana, Slovenia on a lovely hot summer’s day. From being a former dull, grey town in a communist country, Ljubljana is now a hip  small capital city with a vibrant café culture and beautiful Viennese Secessionist Architecture.

Heyjude

I now live back in the UK, but spent several years travelling the world and then living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Looks like a great place to visit Jude. I have never been to that region, but on the strength of those photos, I feel that I would really like to see it.
    Regards as always, Pete.

    1. It’s a lovely place and easy to get to. We flew from Stansted with Easy Jet I think, airport not far from the city or Lake Bled (where we stayed). I’d like to return.

    1. Bohinj – doesn’t slip of the tongue quite so easily does it!
      Shall have to make another visit to the region, I hear this lake is also very picturesque.

        1. It’s the sunshine that does it, when I see the sun I get the urge to travel. The rest of the time I just want to hibernate 🙄

  2. Lovely photos for the Street challenge Jude. We visited Croatia a few years ago which is the closest I’ve been to Ljubljana and these reminded me of it very much. Interesting love locks!! Looks beautiful here.xx

    1. Croatia is lovely too (decades since I was there though). I must look up these weird figures, there is a street with a rill in the middle filled with these characters and I am sure it has a meaning. Quite why people put padlocks on them I have no idea when there is a perfectly good bridge nearby!

    2. Apparently the rill is called “Faces” an art installation of 700 different bronze faces along Locksmith Street created by Jakov Brdar and I believe these interesting little beasties are also by him on Butchers’ Bridge (Mesarski most)

  3. Ahh…so that’s what it all means! Thanks for looking it up and explaining it. They are very peculiar aren’t they? I’ve not seen anything quite like them before!!!
