Gradisce Street, Ljubljana

My Favorite Street in Ljubljana – LJ Pic of the Day

One of them anyway. It’s definitely on the short list.

Today’s pic of the day from the Slovenian capital is this snap of Gradišče, a small dead-end street located just behind the Slovene National Theatre-Drama Ljubljana. It’s in the heart of the city center, but very quiet, with little traffic. It’s the way the architecture comes alive that I find most appealing. There are stories, a breathing history of the city, layered in each of those exposed exteriors, slightly cracked windowsills and patchy facades, witnessed by the three wreath-bearing cherubs, their heads so admiringly shielded from the elements and the birds.

Speaking of drama and favorites – marginally related is today’s WordPress Daily Prompt, asking us to respond to the same ten questions James Lipton always poses to his guests on his show Inside the Actors Studio, most of them sharing variations on the theme of favorite. I’ve got 15 minutes to get my next film screenings today, so no time to dawdle or reflect:
