The grey bleak colours of an apartment block with mainly grey cars parked up need just this. Roses galore planted by residents just change the bleak trip to an absolute pleasure walking past.

This just caught my eye in terms of the two components blending well together. The locked gate and graffiti background just compliment each other. Both are ugly on their own but but create a little beauty together I feel.

Just love those classic bicycles that just keep appearing in Yambol. This one parked up with a secure lock on a bench. The saddle looks like a Brooks leather model probably going back half a century or more I'd guess.

Couldn't help but notice that The Drink Rakia Crew have left their mark here in Yambol. Strange way to leave their mark. Will be watching out for more places where they have been from now on.
A lovely sight awaited me in Yambol City Centre with newly planted miniature Rose Bushes in a ringed formation. This place is regularly changed with floral depending on the season,

This polite notice was seen when entering one of Yambol's apartment blocks. It makes good sense as well. 'Please shut the door,' is the message if you were wondering. Love the wooden frame and decoration underlining the request.

Situated just on the outskirt of the Yambol City Centre you will find the Goddess Diana's Hunting Dog ready for action. No sign of Diana to be seen though.

This are in the South part of Yambol is quite depressive. It is derelict land which held former buildings of which are clearly evident with the foundations that remain. This would be a great place for developing residential property being so close to Yambol City Centre. However the population here is in decline so that will never happen.

A footbridge enabling pedestrian to travel from the South to the North side of Yambol's River Tundzha is seen here. I like the bare metal girders that poke out of the side as if the construction hadn't been finished. also the two parallel concrete strips going up the stairs very useful for bicycles, prams and buggies.

Road Signs are quite often seen on the side of apartment blocks lining roads in Yambol. this one typifies what I mean. A 60 Kmph sign clearly instructing drivers to adhere to that regulation. On the road though other more modern road signs have overtaken with 50 Kmph limits on this particular stretch of road.

Looking in a Northerly direction at Yambol's River Tundzha with Yambol City Centre ahead, the health of the River Tundzha looks healthy. After heavy rainfall during Winter and Early Spring it has been flushed out and new silt transported by melted snow from the Balkan Mountains leaving a fertile bed for nature to thrive.

This mysterious metal cube construction stands by the road side seemingly for a reason unknown. After asking around the mystery was solved. It was an old traffic watch tower manned by the traffic police, but the top half of the construction is no longer there.

This is a fine example of a Yambol Bus Stop with timetable information on it. What is typical si the fact that it leans to one side as if it was drunk. Maybe purposely done so the bus wing mirror is avoided when buses roll in. Somehow I doubt it though.

In case you didn't know Yambol has a fine yoghurt made from bull milk. These statutes remain a sitting by the River Tundzha as a reminder of this. Having seen then originally over 10 years ago, they haven't aged at all.

Looking in a Southerly direction the lush greenery on the banks of Yambol's River Tundzha are at its peak right now. A perfect haven for uninterfered wildlife with the nature of the terrain being swampland no one ventures there.
Tuesday, 8 May 2018
Poppies set the scene on the bank of the River Tundzha in Yambol, You just can't miss their distinctive red colour amidst the greenery and greyness of the grass and concrete building respectively.

An unlikely pair situated together next to the southern ring road in Yambol, But Diana Hotel Business Centre and the Church are the really both businesses at the end of the day.

Situated almost under the shadow of Kaufland Supermarket, this Petrol Station is a favourite of mine and where I normally fill up my bottle gas in the Winter months. It may not be the cheapest, but it is the nearest and staff always friendly.

Fancying a coffee I decided to go to a place I went to many years ago, When I got there this is what I found, a concrete shell. This used to be a Trendy Cafe with a decent menu and Music videos being played, obviously in a by gone age now.

I couldn't help noticing that this wall of a kine is made up of many different elements. Brick, concrete, wood and metal to name a few. Looks like the gate will fall off when opened.

Crossing the small bridge by the Park Hotel Yambol we get a fine view of the River Tundzha as it travel South through the Town Park. Quite often you see Kingfishers diving to and fro in this stretch of the river.

Not too sure what this was all about, but this tree was spotted sporting paper blossoms at the South end of Yambol City Park in the grounds of the Gold Horn (Zlaten Rog) Restaurant.

Yes it was very cold this winter in Yambol apartments so this particular resident has organised some insulation on the exterior wall. The worker looks quite precarious dangling from the side of the face of the block.

Yu need sunglasses to see these glorious blooming flowers in Yambol's City Park. You have to enter the park from the back end as the bridge from the City Centre is closed for repair. Well worth the extra walk to see this.

The bedding plants laid out earlier in the year now are in full bloom in the spring sunshine in Yambol City Centre. Always a pleasure to walk past especially this time of year.

With the Business Centre in Yambol vacant you will not find anyone around in the surrounding area. However, today I saw this lonely bike park up only to find out that it belonged to a security guard who patrols this area. He was watching his own bike throughout his duties.

the Mall Yambol looks impressive from most angles, but from the main road it doesn't capture too much glamour. The garage parking entrance is just on the nearside left, but not used that much in the main due to parking fees in excess of the blue zone fees outside.

Always fun watching children play with these little springs that run along Georgi S. Rakovski Street in Yambol. They also have changing lights that can be seen much more clearly at night.
Thursday, 19 April 2018
Major renovation is currently being made in the bridge giving access to Yambol'c City Park. today the old main waste pipe is being replaces with new one. This was watched by many as the delicate movements of cranes working together had to be synchronized for success.

On a warm, sunny Spring morning stand The Mall Complex in Yambol's City Centre. Typical of Yambol with the shops in the basement, 1st and second floors and apartments above. The landscape that surrounds is a great place to relax away from the crowds and traffic.

Most pictures of the Theatre in Yambol is taken head on, this one is taken from a difference angle. This shows the side fountains and flower bed that wouldn't have been seen otherwise.

Well I guess if you have the resources you may as well use them anyway you can. Her is an example of the ladder from Yambol fire engine being used for DIY repair painting the front wall of the Fire Station. Didn't look too stable from where I was watching.

This Euroshop has been here for decades, well before Bulgaria joined the E.U. A picture of it was taken back in 2010 and nothing has changed since that time apart from the sign having faded. See for yourself here :- https://yamboldailypicture.blogspot.bg/2010/02/orignal-yambol-euroshop.html

This is Dimitar Dimov an old school Bulgarian politician from the Bulgarian Communist Party. This plaque is displayed in a street called The Black Sea. There are many plaques in Yambol of this nature.

Seeing a dead rat is quite unusual in Yambol. Normally they are alive and thriving, so I don't know why this particular rat wasn't part of the rat parties they have here. The many cats which frequent the place this was found are scared of them so it wasn't hunted down by them.

Situated just outside the South entrance of Yambol City Park stands this memorial that is well tended and use in ceremonies throughout the year. Nice to see respect for a history that should not be repeated. No graffiti either!

Whilst walking through the main Hospital grounds in Yambol I came across a section where someone was sleeping under the stairway. Surely not normal to have patients sleeping in beds outside. Notice also there is a stairway to nowhere. By the way this place is a surgery that treats children.

The uniformity of these green garages caught my eye situated in the Eastern side of Yambol. Not just the uniformed colour and shape but the numbers that count down as you go into the distance. If you look carefully you can still see a little bit of Winter hanging around even though we are deep into Spring now.
