What would you miss? - February's theme.

If you had to leave forever the city from which you usually post, what would you miss most?  Would it be a food, a place or a craft?  Maybe it would be a person, or perhaps a custom.  Start thinking . . . !

The February theme was suggested by Pat, a.k.a. Bibi, from A Yankee in Belgrade.  A retired language professor, Pat has lived in Europe more than she has lived in the USA, her home country; seven years in France and 37 in Belgrade.  Pat discovered City Daily Photo more than seven years ago while searching for some Paris information for a friend.  She came across Paris Daily Photo.

The seed was planted and she started her blog in March 2008.  Pat takes her camera literally everywhere she goes.  On the rare occasions that she doesn't, of course she sees the Photo of the Century . . . .  

Though Pat often grumbles about some aspects of life in Serbia, she would miss many things about Belgrade should she have to go.  One of them is the Romi, or gypsies, as they are frequently called.  Pat is continually fascinated by their spirit, ingenuity, love of life, and friendliness, despite the hardships they face daily.  This photo shows two paper collectors in a vehicle they've put together themselves.

  2. Yes, it is a wonderful challenge. I am trying to find something about my city that is not easy to replicate anywhere else. Such fun ...

Actually, it will probably be first on Facebook, or Twitter, or maybe you'll hear about it from the nice old guy next door. Whatever the case, if you have news to share, how about sharing it with us, so we can share it with everyone and actually make these pages useful?
