Poppies and Shrapnel (Pic de Jour)

Dom Policije Vranjače, near Sarajevo

This is was taken at what is left of Dom Policije Vranjače, a former Club/vacation home for police officers, in the hills south of Sarajevo. Not a day passes that I don’t think about my visit to the Bosnian capital last year. I’m also a sucker for poppies.

This spot was one stop on a day-long Sarajevo Siege Tour which I’d highly recommend to anyone who visits and has the time to spare. A two-and-a-half minute video I shot of that tour is below. And if you happen to have another 150 seconds to spare and can only follow one of the links included on this page, please check out my Sarajevo time lapses video. And remember, sharing is nice. Thanks. 🙂
