Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

A little bit of snow and slush in Prešeren Square. Ljubljana, 4-Dec-2012
A little bit of snow and slush in Prešeren Square. Ljubljana, 4-Dec-2012

This wasn’t the first snow of the fall in Ljubljana –that came back in the end of October— but it did signal the final transformation of the year. Just in time, too, for the annual holiday lights in the center of the Slovenian capital’s old town center and for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.

There’s also been another transformation underway, whose timing coincidentally matched that of the arrival of the late autumn snows. There have been thousands of people in the streets over the past two weeks and their numbers are gradually growing as the discontent over business as usual is spreading — not just in Ljubljana, but in dozens of cities around the country. There’s another demonstration happening right now; I can hear the marchers in the street about a block away. I’m sick and on the couch. But I’ll be there next time.

    I’ve just run into your blog for the first time. Great!
    I almost went to Ljubljana for my 30th birthday (10 years ago) – may end up saving it for my 50th. In the meantime, there is your blog and your fab photos 😉

      Thanks for stopping by and very glad to hear that Ljubljana remains on your list of destinations. But maybe you should move it up a bit – 45th bday? 🙂
