Little roses

Hi folks! Thanks to you all who visiting my blog Yours friendly comments give me the wings to go on with posting.
I am late today. I was too busy all day long. On today’s rainy day I want to send some flowers for you to make yours day. I took this photo at the end of September of this year.

To be honest I didn’t know what to post today. I haven’t taken a photo for days. It is not so cold outside but it is rainy and foggy. I don’t have any inspiration in such weather. I finally chose these two photos of this little but nice cottage. What took my eye was its simple but interesting construction.

Red apple

The blossom photo of this apple I took in spring of this year which photo I posted on this blog on 29 June of this year. And then on 4th July I posted a photo of unripe fruit; after the blossom. It is now ripe apple, red and very delicious. I took this photo on 30 Sept of this year.

This is how car ashtray looks like in my friend’s car. He is a non-smoker and as he is a man in love with sea this is his way to bring closer some sea atmosphere which makes his day every time he sits in his car. There is no accounting for tastes!
Have a nice weekend!

Let me in!

On my way home from work yesterday this scene took my eye. This cat looked so cute while trying to find its way in the house.
I am taking this opportunity to say that this house is one of very old Bosnian’s houses. God know when it was built. I’ve never seen anybody from that hose. This one isn’t nice but its little windows are interesting. Little window is called “kapidžik” and the wooden bars are “mušepci” for watching. Once upon a time love idylls for flirting (it is said “ašikovanje”) were taking place by those little windows; a girl is talking with her boyfriend through that “kapidžik” while he is standing in the street.

Old people always were careful when build or sell houses so all this reminded me to an old story that I heard long ago. Story says about a man who wanted to sell his house for the price of 300 ducats’. Buyers noticed that the house was too expensive and that it wasn’t worth more then 100 ducats. The owner replied to him: “The house really isn’t worth more then 100 ducats’ but its left neighbor worth 100 ducats and its right neighbor worth 100 ducats, so it is 300 ducats in total.
Well, I think it really is important what neighborhood we live in and who lives next to our door.

Please, click on the photos to see more details!


This photo I also took on last Tuesday. These twins are just opposite the Church which photo I posted yesterday. The modern construction and the new Romanesque style can be seen in one place.
These two buildings are called UNITIC what means United Investment and Trading Company. People call them UNITIC Skyscrapers today, but before the war they were known as “Momo and Uzeir”; the folk’s characters from once a popular TV Sarajevo show. People never knew which one of those twins is Momo or Uzeir but isn’t the point just in that. In the multinational and mix cultural country like mine is it shouldn’t be important who is who. It is important that we are human beings, and that we are all the same in spite of the differences just like those two skyscrapers are in the centre of Sarajevo.
The skyscrapers also were hardly damaged in the war but were under the restoration actions like thousands others building over here and there has still been lots of unreconstructed building for the lack of the money. But its turn will come.

Saint Josip’s church

Saint Josip’s church in Sarajevo is the work of the architect Karlo Paržik, who is the author of many other historical buildings of Sarajevo. Karlo Paržik was born in 1857 in Czechoslovakia but he died in Sarajevo 1942. He was only 26 years old when he came to Sarajevo.
I took this photo on my way to work last Tuesday morning around 7.00 o’clock. It looked so beautiful lighted up from the floor on that rather gloomy morning.
Please, click on the photo to enlarge it.

This morning arrived with firs snow; too early for this time of the year. Although I love snow I wasn't delighted to see the snow blanket when I woke up this morning. It is cold outside (0°C) and I would say I am not in a well mood today.
This photo I took only the other day. The photo is full of light and sun. It makes me feeling better and comfortable while looking at the velvet petals and the warm colours of this beautiful flower that we call Kadifa.
Please, click on the photo to enlarge it.

I never plant this long-lasting and charming flower. Its flowers last until snow start to fall. Where ever its seed fall down it sprouts and start to grow in spring, like a weed. Snapdragon reminds me to my childhood. When I was a little girl I use to take its blossom and squeeze its sides after which it opened up like a mouth. I always had fun doing that.
Have a relaxing weekend!

Rose in the rain

Old woods

Hm… it’s only a matter of perspective and viewpoint, just like it is in life.

When I took this photo I couldn’t see the woods from the tree so I took another photo.

It is yellow anyway. I am taking this opportunity to tell you that this is the kind of the bus by which I go to my work every morning. By the way it is not bad the reflection in the rearview mirror.

It was raining over the weekend and it was so cold. Although it is sunny day today it still has been cold what is quite normal for this time of the year.
This plant grows in my flowerpot. We call it „trešnjica“what means „little cherry“. It is of the same size as a cherry but it doesn't have anything to do with it. Looking this plant on the photo one could say that it is tomato but it isn't. It isn't edible at all. This is only some kind of decorative plant which I like very much but unfortunately I don't know its real name, but I would like to know that.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Blue flower

Thank you my blog friends very much for your visiting, your nice and kind comments. That is a great support for me.
This is another macro that I took last week in my garden. The diameter of this flower is not bigger then 3 cm.
I took this photo with my new camera Cannon A 460, 5.0 Mp, 4x optical zoom lens which I have been using since September of this year. That was when my husband bought this camera for me because my old one had started to make me some problems.

Inside of petunia

Thursday, October 4, 2007


What I really wanted to photograph was this wild flowers that we call “kaćuni” which beautiful pink colour attracted me. (That is plural of “kaćun”). These flowers grow in spring and it is one of the heralds of that season but I took that photo last Sunday. No wonder because the weather is so beautiful just like it was spring instead of autumn.
I wanted to know how “kaćuni” is called in English and I was surprised when I found “Orchidaceae” written in my dictionary. It cannot be…I know what Orchid is. I am now confused.

Unexpected visit

This bug (which name I don't know) didn’t expect me to disturbing it so it was trying hard to run away from my camera and this is the only way I managed to capture it.

Busy bee

Hello my blog friends. Thank you very much for dropping by and for your nice comments which I really appreciate a lot. I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend.
As for me I had enough time for everything that I planned to do around the house and to go for a walk with my husband again. The weather is wonderful. I spent some time taking macro photos of a bee and the flowers from my garden and from the garden of my neighbour; she lives next to my door.

No 2

There are several photos that I took with a bee and I like them all. That’s why I couldn’t decide which one to post so I choose to send only two.
