Plaza Presernov in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana seems to me to be one of the most livable cities in Europe.  The riverfront is lined with cafes and cool bars, people bike and walk everywhere, there’s plenty of public spaces to gather, they have fresh farmers markets and, best of all, there seems to be a real “live and let live” attitude among the populace.

This picture was taken near Plaza Presernov in the middle of the city.  I got some great shots of local Ljubljanans going about their daily business, but this guy riding a bike was one of my favorites.
