Stretching in an area of 316 hectares with five lakes and a zoo, Maksimir is the favourite place to unwind for many citizens of Zagreb. When Cardinal said we should take photos every month of a place in our city to show seasonal and other changes, I could not think of a better one. Winter is not glamorous in my parts, the virginal snow here lasts for a few hours at most to be quickly replaced with squishy, muddy, gray mush, but even in this grayish, bleak coat Maksimir remains my preferred part of the town, and also the one I draw my earliest childhood memories from.

Looks solitary, but it is not.

Every month Cardinal will challenge us to go to the same spot and take photos in different light and atmosphere. Check out this challenge, and join us.
