  1. I am traveling in Croatia. The weather is cold. I just heard about the flooding earlier this evening. At least my feet are dry. Visit me to see my latest from Croatia.

  2. That’s appalling, Alis – so many people losing their homes. We know all about it here: in Queensland, the State to the north of mine, they’ve been flooded like this a few times in the past couple of years. It’s climate change, of course. May I reblog this, please ?

  4. This breaks my heart, Alis. I recognized a few of the locations from my travels there. I’ve often told people “I don’t have Bosnian blood, just Bosnian bones.” I’ll be thinking and praying for the lovely Bosnian people. I appreciate you reporting on what’s happening there. 😦


  5. Man that was quite some powerful pictures. And tragic for the people who live there. The worst part is that who knew? Didn´t see it yet at least in the Americans channels and certainly not in the Spanish channels, doubt they are going to cover this. Good you brought the attention to it. Would like to donate but I´m literally broke. So the only thing I can do to help is just spread the word on twitter.


  6. Sending everyone love, positive energy, prayers, and more love. I’m so sorry for everyone dealing with the horrors. This is unbelievable; thank you for keeping us updated and showing the intensity of the damage through the photos. God bless you, Alis.


  7. Of course I have heard about these horrible floods, but your photos tell a story well-beyond my imagination! This is simply terrible. My heart really goes out to you and the people of Bosnia. The feeling of helplessness in the face of so much devastation must be painful. I admire the sense of unity and cooperation that you describe, and know you will get through this, but I would never minimize how hard this is right now. I am very moved and will be checking back to learn more as the days pass.

  9. Great Pics. They graphically and aesthetically demonstrate how swiftly Nature sweeps us away and all our grandiose constructions and our arrogant certainty that WE are in control.
    We went thru similar floods recently here in far off Brisbane. And last week we had the worst hail-storm on record- hail-stones the size of your fist smashed every window facing South. (The glaziers are happy at least, they’ll be replacing glass till April.) As a result the shell-shocked townsfolk are jumpy as neurotic cats. Everytime the sun goes behind a cloud they start weeping and begin putting up sandbags in the doorway.
    Meanwhile half of the State is “drought declared”. Ah, I love a land of sweeping contrasts. There’d be a lot of material here for your lens.
