PROJECT 52 – Week 28

Heart of Borak
Located about 2 kilometers from my apartment (in Siroki Brijeg – Hercegovina), lies Borak, a place with numerous water springs which make river Listica.
This place is inspiration for a lot of my long exposure photographs.

PROJECT 52 – Week 27

the Rose of Assisi
I took this photo during my pilgrimage in Italy (Padua, Rome, Assisi). When we came to the birth place of Saint Francis of Assisi, it was love at first sight. Beautiful town located on a hill, with beautiful stone streets and houses. Paradise for photographers. In this photo you can see The Papal Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, with rose in frontal plan.

PROJECT 52 – Week 24

Across the Baricades
After rain came the snail 🙂
This was a Macro tryout with my raynox lens mounted on my 40-150mm lens.
I took a shot of this amusing snail with its house, slowly moving across this green cactus.

Colors of Spring
Beginning of the spring.
I took this photo on a meadow, located around 5 kilometers east of my town. We call this place ”Mostarsko Blato”

PROJECT 52 – Week 14

A View from Above
Mila Gojsalić (also traditionally “Mile Gojsalića”) (died 1530) is a Croatian heroine and martyr.
Her origins are from the village of Kostanje in Dalmatian hinterland and she was a distant descendant of Croatian king Gojslav. She lived in time of Ottoman wars in Croatia. In 1530 Ottoman Ahmed-pasha gathered an army of 10 000 men with a goal to conquer Poljica. He made a camp in a place called Podgrac (Podgrađe). Mila Gojsalić was among other local women forced to lose virginity with Ahmed-pasha. Because of that act she infiltrated the Turkish camp and blew up the munitions stockpile, killing Ahmed-pasha and numerous officers and soldiers. That act completely surprised and confused remaining Turkish soldiers who were then overrun by people of Poljica.
Ivan Meštrović sculptured the statue of her, installed above the town of Omiš, while Jakov Gotovac composed the opera to her honour. August Šenoa also wrote about her.

PROJECT 52 – Week 13

the Passion and the Sacrifice
Good Friday (Veliki Petak), the day when we are commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday
This photo was taken on Big Hill (Veliko Brdo) above the town of Makarska (Croatia).

PROJECT 52 – Week 12

Saint Peter Lighthouse. Built long time ago, to be precise 1884.
Ever since I came in Makarska, I have been planning to take some photos of this unusual lighthouse. Few days ago, after dinner and hard days work, I had just about 10 minutes before it was pitch black, to shoot this photo.
Photo was taken with Olympus E-520 (like all of my photos from this project), and a tripod, with 30 second exposure.
