An update

Hello Dear Visitors of This Blog,

I apologize that this blog hasn't been living up to its name lately (i.e. "Daily"), personal circumstances have seriously derailed my posting activity here, but I hope to get back on track before long.

Thanks and stay tuned!

It was a bad day for trolleybuses

The street was more crowded than usual that day because there was a major problem with the trolleybus line and they all stopped running. Don't you love when that happens?

A photo of stray dogs

This is a pack of stray dogs at the park at Mitic's Hole near Slavija Circle. Which one do you think is the pack leader? From my observations it's the tiny one, who's furthest on the right.

Speaking of stray dogs in Belgrade, if you want to help out please visit Katya's Dogs.

Texture overlay on a photo

This is a snapshot taken on a windy day + a texture overlay.

An anonymous poster in my comments asked for a tutorial, so I'll try. This can be really simple to do. You just need an image of a texture to lay over your photo, it can be one you made or photographed yourself (I know a lot of people take texture snaps just for this purpose) or find some online, such as these very nice free textures.

Then all you do is open your main photo,
open the texture image in another layer that's placed above the main photo,
Set the blend mode of the texture layer to "multiply"
and that's it, you're done.
If your image doesn't look the way you want it to when you set the blending mode to "multiply", try "overlay" or some of the other blending modes to see which one works best with your particular photo and texture. And of course you can also tweak the texture's opacity level or saturation and so on until you're happy with the way it looks.

If you find it helpful to see things being done or need it more step-by-step, here's a good tutorial I found on youtube:

Lilly drogerie

This is the entrance to Lilly, a chain of stores kind of like what in America is called a drugstore, selling makeup and toiletries and household cleaners, but until just this year they didn't have pharmacies in the stores. Now some of the stores have expanded to include that and I personally love it.

If you are looking for Lilly's website it's here:

There's not too much information there, though. In fact, this is all that's there (besides the logo).

Duck family

This picture is from the summer. They say that you should always have people or animals moving into a photo (with space in front of them) and I tend to agree.
