Zagreb, Seen Ron’s Way

Stone Gate Candles

Stone Gate Candles

Here are a few photos from Zagreb, Croatia.  There is definitely too much graffiti in Zagreb.  When I shoot walls the doors and windows remind me of Mondrian’s paintings.

    • You have an interesting way of explaining the situation.

  6. The Stone Gate Candles, that’s very, very pretty.

    We have an occasional graffiti problem here in C. Springs. But, it seems the police know who to pick up – they have a habit of leaving their fingerprints visibly seen on the empty spray cans.

    • I am familiar with Colorado Springs, a very nice place.

  8. Interesting photos – Gives the feel of a deserted town. The tagging seems amateurishly destructive – not like some of the great creative street art elsewhere.

    • When I did the first batch of photos, it was on Sunday Morning and town was indeed deserted. However, I do tend to shoot in less crowded areas and that can give a look of desertion. There have been many comments about the graffiti. Yes, it is destructive when applied to beautiful old buildings.

    • I am in Lake Bled and will post some water abstracts soon. In Zagreb I met a group touring on motorcycles. All were Italian except one American who rented a Ducati. He lost the electronic key and was having a bad day.

  11. The graffiti isn’t even remotely good, just garbage graffiti.

    • I am not photographing the graffiti because it is good or bad, I am photographing an entire scene, and the defacement is part of it. Someone could have splashed a bucket of paint on a wall and it might have meaning.

    • Thank you for enjoying my ramble through Slovenia.

  13. Hope you liked Zagreb–truth be told, I was under-impressed after a sojourn on the Dalmatian coast last year (though I was only in Zagreb for a day while waiting for a train, and it was raining, so perhaps that had something to do with it…)…but still, nice photos!
