Floating Umbrellas in Belgrade

I was wondering what to post for this Foto Friday and, since I submitted this photo for a fun competition, I thought I might as well share it with you.

So, this is what happened.  I had very little time in Belgrade, only about 21 hours, in fact.  I had been on the go all day and was in the centre of Belgrade searching for somewhere to eat.  It was getting late and I was tired but, as I was walking past a road, I spotted this.  If you read my blog regularly, you will know by now that I LOVE anything quirky and this is just that, isn’t it?  I mean, how often do you walk down the road and see a load of floating umbrellas?  OK, so they are ‘technically’ floating; they suspended in mid-air.  How often do you come across that?  Rarely, I assume.  This was the first time I’d seen it.  It isn’t quite as odd as the shoes suspended in Ljubljana and there aren’t as many, but this looks prettier and more colourful.  I wish I had seen this in daylight because it would have been much easier to get a good photo.  I find it difficult getting good shots at night and the fact that these kept moving in the breeze made it all the more difficult.  Nonetheless, I love the overall effect with the brightly-coloured umbrellas.

I have no idea why they are there, but it is either a piece of art or street decoration.  Whatever the reason, it’s interesting and certainly brightens up the side street.

Have your say

What unexpected things have you seen suspended in mid-air on your travels and where?  Please leave your answer in the comment box below because I seem to be developing an interest in such things.

    Hi Teresa, that’s really cool picture! When I saw it, I immediately thought about the shoes suspended in Ljubljana, which are quite fun.

    Cheers!

    Hi Pedro.

    First, it was shoes and then it was umbrellas. ‘What next?’, I wonder. That’s one of the great things about travelling; you just never know!

    Teresa.
