Weekend in black and white

Due to a PC problem (damn you, file history!), and finding the solution on the net as usual, I've had to do a clean computer reset, re-upload tens of thousand photos and a lot of other stuff from a providential external hard drive. Upload still going on, therefore an old photo today. If you want to see more b&w, just click here.

Running for my life :-)

Strange bestie one can find in Belgrade... From my Jurassic Park memories, this has to be a Serbian velociraptor...

Wednesday 28 September 2022


Maybe not everybody's taste... I am French, and we French love our escargots, snails! With some good garlic butter... I've had a dozen last Saturday.

Црква Светог Марка, church of Saint Mark

 Nice, relatively new Serbian orthodox church in the center of Belgrade, Serbia (former Yugoslavia). With a small smaller Russian orthodox church, just behind.

I'm usually wearing sandals 8 months a year (no socks!), so I have no use for this... I hope this shoe shiner earns enough to make a living in Skopje, with other people's shoes.

SXB, Strasbourg International Airport is situated about 8 or 10 km from the city center. I love small airports! Direct flights to 40 European and north African destinations. With a train to Strasbourg every 15 minutes, it's a convenient airport.

Nada Knezevic

According to IMDB, she was the queen of jazz and pop in Yugoslavia. Never heard of her unfortunately.

Tea time after the storm

The week before I arrived in Skopje, they had a big storm. I suppose that destroyed the umbrellas in the Turkish part of town. Some places there made me thing I arrived in Istanbul... What to drink there? Coffee? No, I had an excellent Turkish tea!!!

The harpist

Looks like a Celtic harp... But this was taken in Belgrade, Serbia, and not somewhere in good old Ireland. The young lady was singing and playing, but I didn't recognize the tune. Anyway, more b&w for your weekend right...HERE.

The bridge of civilizations

Built in 2013, with dozens of statues of writers, artists, thinkers from Macedonian and world history. The building in the back is the archeological museum.

Wednesday 14 September 2022

Mother Teresa Memorial

A small chapel in the Mother Teresa Memorial. She was born here, in Skopje, under Albanian rule. Many things in Skopje are named after her, even a highway. Wonder what she might have thought about it... I was very lucky to have met her in the 80es.

This is Alex. He used to be the king of Macedon. They called him Μέγας Αλέξανδρος, Alexander the great. He traveled a lot.  His enormous statue is on the main square of Skopje, North Macedonia.
