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.
Today’s Pic du Jour, the 126th (!) straight, is also my first contribution for the 1 Day 1 World Project, the brainchild of Lisa who blogs at Northwest Frame of Mind. She describes the project like so:
[blockquote source=””]One of my note pad ideas is a 1 Day 1 World project designed to capture daily life moments, one hour at a time, until we reach a full day. The format is structured like the television show 24 with each hour of the day having its own week and running for a total of 24 weeks from May through October. During these six months the Northern Hemisphere will transition from spring to fall while the Southern Hemisphere moves from fall to spring and with enough participation not only will we view a virtual 24 hour day we can also experience each of the four seasons through our global community.[/blockquote]
Contributors then have a week to come up with a representation of that week’s particular hour from their corner of the planet: a photo, text or some combination of the two.
An excellent idea. The finished product could be really interesting. I smell a book.
This week began the 2pm – 3pm hour; I missed the first two weeks so assuming that I’ll make the time to contribute each week through October, I’ll tack on those two missing hours at the end to complete my own 24-hour journey. You should too. Check it out!
