Postcards from Dalmatia (Podstrana), Razglednice iz Dalmacije (Podstrana)









This is a new feature on my blog. In these 'postcards' posts, I will share with you my photographs of Dalmatian cities and villages and write a little bit about the place I'm representing in that post. Podstrana is a small settlement near Split (8 km from Split). According to historical finds, it was originally a Greek settlement but it also has Roman archaeological sights. Due to various archaeological finds, some have connected it to king Arthur (in accordance with recent historical theories that offer the possibility that he was Roman) but naturally such myth figures as Arthur do not really have historical status and hence anything about them is hard to prove. To me the history of this place is interesting enough in itself so I do not feel the need to question or think too much about such new theories, interesting as they may be. 

Nešto novo na blogu, naime u ovakvom tipu 'razglednica' postova, dijeliti ću sa vama fotografije Dalmatinskih mjesta i gradova i napisati ponešto o svakom mjestu koje predstavim u postu. Podstrana je naselje (i općina) udaljeno nekim osam kilometara od Splita. Povijesna nalazišta nalažu da je u početku bilo Grčko naselje ali također ima nalazišta iz rimskih vremena. Zbog raznih arheoloških nalazišta, neki je povezuju sa kraljem Arturom ( u skladu sa novijim povijesnim teorijama koje nude opciju da je bio Rimljanin), ali naravno takve mitološke figure kao Artur nemaju zaista povijesne status te je stoga teško išta zasigurno o njima dokazati. Meni je povijest ovog mjesta sama po sebi dovoljno zanimljiva tako da me te novije teorije baš i ne zaokupljivaju puno, iako naravno mogu biti zanimljive. 

Primjedbe

  1. Mi piace questo nuovo tipo di post ed è bello come Podstrana assomigli alle città del sud Italia!

  7. Radujem se ovoj novoj rubrici :) Što sam starija sve više volim istoriju, naročito te neke manje poznate činjenice. Svako mesto krije nešto posebno. Slike su predivne :)

    1. hvala, slažem se...meni se uvijek sviđa kako ti pišeš o povijesti svakog mjesta, ne samo o onima sa putovanja, nego i o malim mjestima u Španjolskoj.

    1. I like them but I can see why someone might think they're scary. Their beak is very sharp! Once I was bitten by one one year old seagull that I saved from the beach ( he recovered and flew away a day later)...I still have a scar on my hand.

  20. The city looks magical, so dreamy and pensive. I love such places a lot, I really think would love to live in such place where you are. Those snapshots are very beautiful, I love those portraits of a seagull, and the city view is also marvelous.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
