Just an F-Blog #54. Diffusa.

I am tired. Work is intense and I just realised I really only live for the weekends. It's not good, but that's how things are. Can't wait for real vacation to begin. And I am slightly under the weather, I guess. Also because of weather. :) It's a hot, heavy day. We're expecting some rain later in the afternoon and I really feel like I had a bell jar over my head. Anyway, I wanted to take some pics of the Old City on my way to work, but the light was so dispersed, I decided to take away the colours (as if there were any) and play with some contrast.

So, here it is... Diffusa.


Wet. 


The Chateau.
The Chateau.

Not a channel, a river.
Not a channel, a river.

Let's get over.
Let's go.

The Wall.
The Wall.

Remodel me,
Remodel me.

No way.
No way.

Giving up?

Stunning! I love the first one especially of the fountain. Excellent work my friend. Give me the specs on it- speed, f stop, mp, etc.

Wow, it's been awhile since we were granted the privilege of seeing Ljubljana through your eyes. I revel in these muted, gothic monochrome effects and diffused lighting, too.

So happy that the Old City did not suffer the typical fate of many Eastern capitals during the most wreteched period of "sovietisation" (or whatever the hell it's called).

And so happy that you still enjoy showing us pictures of your city.

much love, Shimmer

Yes, the Old City is pretty much untouched, but then again, the whole country really hasn't experienced much of that dreadful communist architecture. It just wasn't populated enough, I guess. :)

It is a nice city, yes! :)

Bell Jar... well, I just wasn't in the best of shoes. And it passed soon. It always does. LOL

I'm working on it. It is first and foremost in my mind when I get back to Europe. ;)
