The drive from Trogir to Marina was a fifteen-minute hop west on Jadranska Magistrala. The old two-lane highway winds along the coast from Rijeka down through Dalmatia, then across the southern border into Montenegro.
I only have a quick couple of announcements regarding the launch of a new story series, a new era for the podcast, and a new studio headquarters in St. Louis. Please share this one, become a member… HAALP! We need to get my studio moved and get the next quarterly production cycle funded and moving along. I can’t wait to be up in you again, Southside. It’s been a while.
If you’d prefer to read the full announcement, it’s right here.
16×20″ Unframed Poster Print – $50.00, tax and shipping included.
I took this photo on an overcast day in Gradac, Croatia, during a long drive up and down the Dalmatian Coast in the spring of 2006. It was a quietly busy time, when all the family-owned coastal resorts were gearing up for the mad rush of the summer tourist season. This handsome hound wasn’t working at all, though, preferring to enjoy afternoon fjaka on a bed of fishing nets and palm fronds, with the waves singing softly to him.
A friend of my girlfriend’s noticed our framed print of this photo in a social media post, and expressed interest in owning one herself. Well, I can do that for her, and for you. And until I get my photo print gallery set up, this is where I’ll offer it for sale. The 16×20″ unframed poster print will be shipped to you immediately (expect it in 5-7 days), so long as you’re in the US. International customers will need to wait until I get my photo gallery launched.
Thank you so much for your interest in my photography. I look forward to making more available in the near future. Perhaps you’d like to stay informed of my developments and sign up for my no-more-than-weekly newsletter.
Croatia has been a popular holiday destination for a few hundred years, but it seems that the vast majority of people want to spend their vacation time and money in coastal Dubrovnik, Split, and on the islands. As someone who has lived and spent plenty of time inland, I’ll tell you that the capital city, Zagreb, is an absolute delight, full of a continental charm and character completely unlike the coast.
If you’re planning a visit to Zagreb, check in with my friend Iva Trčić, whose exquisite 19th century flat on British Square is scheduled to wrap up renovations by June 1, 2018. She’s looking for help with funding the project on IndieGoGo, and is offering stays in the apartment as reward for support. Check out The Old Zagreb Place on IndieGoGo.com.
