AWAY

I'm going back to England tomorrow for a few weeks, so won't be updating the site for a little while.
Will be back on around July 15th.
So, until then.............

RedBull evil bastards


Yesterday was a Sunday, and if there's one thing that I like to do on a Sunday, it's spend the morning sleeping. Not least of all because my Saturday night didn't finish until about 5 in the morning!
So, imagine my anger and annoyance when I was woken at 10 o'clock to the buiding-shaking sound of loud cheesy disco music.
"What the fkucing hell is going on???"

It was the guys from RedBull hosting their annual SoapBox racing parade-thingy up on castle hill. Castle Hill is just outside my window!
So, I spent the whole day listening to the annoying bloke on the loudspeaker and the hundreds of people who had come from all around to enjoy the day in the sun. Did they not know that there was football on the telly????

It finished up around 8pm, and i was a happy man again.

I could't be arsed to take a stroll over there, as I was more interested in the world cup. But I did take a few pictures from my kitchen window. Here you go, above.

Football time


I'm guessing that most of you know what today is.
And love it or hate it, football is going to take centre stage for the next month. Here at ljubljanadailyphoto things will be no different!
Hopefully there will be times when I'm sober enough to even switch on the computer to update the page, time will tell!
This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago when you will remember that I told you about the game my team played in the ex-national stadium.
This is the view from just inside the players' tunnel, around 2 hours before kick-off.

COME ON ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tourist information building


Here is a building that I have discovered hasn't changed a bit probably in over 100 years. How did I discover this? Old postcards.
This building sits on one of the corners of 'three bridges' and is now home to the Ljubljana Tourist Board.

It looks exactly the same today as it does in any old black and white picture, and really makes you appreciate the city a little bit more. I don't even know why, it just does!

Bookshop


I'm currently involved in a bit of business that I hope will be quite profitable. Say no more ;-)
One of the things that this 'work' involves is taking a large amount of photos of many different establishments in the city.
Today I'll share one of these photos with you. It was taken inside a decent bookshop here in the city, Knjigarna Vale Novak. This is the place to go for all your literary needs, and offers a huge selection of English-language books on virtually every subject.

Another balloon


Yesterday evening from my kitchen window I spotted this balloon flying above the centre of town.

Castle and Fransiscan Church view


This picture is taken from one of the main streets in the city, Slovenska Cesta. It shows the castle sitting up on her hill, and also in the forefront you see the pinky colour of the Fransiscan Church in PreŇ°eren's Square.

Interesting house


Went for a walk and found this interesting-looking house sitting next to the Finish embassy. Thought I'd share it with you.
