Ljubljana, my hometown is a wonderful city. I really enjoy going to the Old town, it is about 20 min walk from my home. Usually the city is the most pleasant during the Summer season, somewhere between May till end of September, when the streets of old town are the liveliest. But one of the best times to visit the city is in December, when the so called “Merry December” festivities take place. The old town is beautifully decorated and there are all sorts of stands selling everything from mulled wine to Christmas presents.
This year I decided to photograph the old town “properly”. To get these shots I was out with my camera four mornings and four evenings I didn’t count the mulled wine… It was fun, seeing my town as a tourist, trying to get the best shots with new angles and not to repeat what others have done before. I also met a lot of friends which was very cool.

Presern square – always full of life.

Yes, this year we even got snow in December! It didn’t last for very long as the city cleaned streets in no time and the wind blew it off the trees. Well, this shot is all I needed:)
And here are two “bonus” images:
The “official” mug for mulled wine. It makes a nice souvenir and since I don’t drink mulled wine at home it has a new role now – a bird feeder!
You are most welcome to share, in fact I will appreciate this very much. You can follow me on Facebook or Twitter where I post regularly. You can also join me on my photography tours and workshops in Slovenia or Croatia.
Thank you and all the best in 2015!
