The "new" old bridge in Mostar , Bosnia and Herzegovina
The original being practically destroyed in the Bosnian conflict
Sorry about the angle some school kids were determined to hog the better positions to pose :twisted:

Given the way it was strafed by snipers I think I'd have gone for a higher parapet but its simple, elegant lines make it a fine memorial.

Not bad for a new old bridge. Very well done, I say. And the picture, too.

That's clever! By the way, is this an annual pilgrimage thing? Haven't you been there this time of year a few times before?

Err no ! That was taken in September on a trip from Croatia , oddly enough when you go from Dubrovnik you end up entering Bosnia
twice due to the routing .
That was me just emptying the camera after finding the usb lead for it ,
the cam end is even smaller than a micro usb but similar style , the light rain one was from the phone using the screen shot method again :oops:
