The World From My Window
May 30, 2010 by michaeljjordan
Actually, it’s the view from my balcony. It’s a cool, cloudy Sunday morning, here on Grösslingova ulica in Bratislava. The kids are watching cartoons; I feel like shooting photos — but only from our sandstone balcony, overlooking the street from our first-floor apartment. Truth is, I never realized my street was so interesting … until it went all black-and-white on me. (Shot with a Nikon D40x; except for the two wide-angle pics, all shot with my 300 mm lense.)
My street, facing westward.
The balcony: a room outdoors.
Picasso-esque apartment staring at us.
For more photos …
The old mansion diagonal from us.
Balcony with shrub.
Gotta Google this symbol.
The street view eastward.
Traffic isn't excessive ...
... but parking spots are scarce ...
... unless you can use the sidewalk, too.
Graffiti scars Bratislava and Central Europe.
Basement apartments take precautions.
Though, most litter lands in a bin.
Antennas dot the rooftops.
As do ornamental touches.
Another pleasant balcony.
Though a terrace is even better.
19th-century New Renaissance ...
... meets 1950s Socialist-Realist.
No, I haven't tried the "turbo" solarium ... yet.
The Slovak and EU flags flutter side-by-side.
Quiet morning for foot traffic saw this couple...
... and Fifi out for a walk.
Our balcony, from which I viewed this world today.
