Well, we might get some real frost and snowfall next week, meaning the Autumn explosion might soon be gone. So, before you get tired of me getting a hardon on how pretty this season is, here is my - probably - last Autumn f-blog of 2009. But I am not promising anything. Oh, by the way, Dragon is a symbol ob Ljubljana. If you are keen on knowing why, click HERE.





The Dragon Bridge. Well, not the complete bridge. :)




Near my bus stop.


City park, Tivoli, #1.


City park, Tivoli, #2.


A view of the historic centre from the castle, Tivoli in the back.


Just a detail.


Oh, look, a dargon! Ljubljana city flag.


By the river Ljubljanica. Food market on the right.

I remember the Dragon Bridge - and that it's near a horse meat restaurant - Crazy Horse or Hot Horse, or something like that..

Yes, it's close to Hot Horse - which I totally ignore. :)

I know it's hypocritical because I eat beef and chicken, but I don't think I could bring myself to eat horse....just my cultural background...

Horses are too pretty to be eaten. :)

Oh, what a beautiful dragon! Shame on Jason for killing it! LOL

I LOVE the red leaves, and the yellow ones too (wondering what the tree in photos 3 and 4 is). Surprised? ;)

Half of the trees in my neighbourhood are still green.

I haven't seen the historic centre by daylight, right? I miss ljubljana!

Leaves are splendid. :) Number 3 is beech, totally clueless about the fourth one. Chocolates come from the historic centre. :)

So very beautiful.

What a lovely capture of fall, and all the other shots...

Stunning, really.

Thanks, Todd! I've gone completely insane with Ljubljana in Autumn in 2009. I need to stop. :)

Ljubljana is full of dragons, this one is - for me - the loveliest. :) So, when do I see pics of your city?

If only Jason had asked directions, he wouldn't have taken a wrong turn. Not much has changed in 3000 years.

Great photos. I love the dragon.

Ljubljana was happy to have you here. And I was even more happy. And I want to see you again. In Denver and in Ljubljana.

Many many hugs

This sounds like a plan to me. I'd love to have you over here and I'd love to come visit you in Ljub again.
And I'd love to share some lovely red wine with you and chill for hours and or days. You are a genuine nice man, so very easy to be around and with.

Cheer and hugs.

You know I love views of the city from the heights, don't you?

Maybe, just maybe, I'll take that walk up the hill and get a picture of Ljubljana myself from that vantage point!
paterson_si
Nov. 2nd, 2009 06:49 am (UTC)
I have to correct you there... You definitely will go up that hill. If you don't feel like walking, then it's a cable car thing. :)

I need the walk....
paterson_si
Nov. 2nd, 2009 10:50 am (UTC)
Ok.... a nice 10 minute walk from the old town is all that takes. :)

I am so wanting to visit..it looks just beautiful. Perhaps we should add it to our next European trip. Thanks for the pics...can't wait for the winter offerings.

Perhaps? Just perhaps? :) I think it should be a must. I might offer some fog today.............

I love how (some?) Europeans just accept they're hemmed in and deal with it. What a beautiful city!

Well.. you have to deal with it somehow. :)

Another beautiful series, from a beautiful city! I just may have to visit some day... I would love to walk by the river on a day like the one you reveal here with such superb grace.

I also saw here a beautiful snapshot of the fogbound castle, a harmony in pearl and velvet and grey, Whistler might have called it--thanks to the old movies I loved as a child and still love today, I have a real "thing" for castle battlements, especially shrouded in mist...

Ljubljana is a really pretty city and I am sure you'd enjoy it a lot. The city and the peaceful life it offers.
