1 Day 1 World Project: Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2:31 pm Sunday, 18-May

Each Sunday Ljubljana hosts a flea market along the Ljubljanica River on the southern fringes of old town. I was hoping to catch the tail end and check out the old camera offerings but arrived too late. Instead I found all the vendors shutting down and packing up, this gentleman included. I caught him here having a little fun between delivery runs from his stand to his car. This was just before he did a mid-air 180-degree turn. Quite impressive.

Several were taken along the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship, a 33km long recreational loop trail around Ljubljana which marks where a barbed wire fence, erected by occupying Fascist Italian forces, stood for 1,170 days during World War II.

The Street Crawl Daily reached its midpoint today; the mix of rain and ominous afternoon clouds coupled with streets largely emptied due to the upcoming holidays, made it a good day for shooting. (And plenty of catch up editing this morning.) My personal pick of the pack is the shot above of a flower vendor on the central Čopova Street forced by a brief downpour to take a break.
