Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

IMG_3326-0.JPG

This photo was the first I posted to Instagram, way back in the fall of 2011.

It reminds me of the first walk I took on belgradestreets.

Walking in the snow and ice from the Hotel Mr President opposite the bus station, past the railway station and then up the slope of Nemanjina.

Little did I know then the impact this city and her people would have on me.

Thank you for visiting belgradestreets.

Weekly Photographic Challenge: Between

atownend_20130622_2819

“In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; its the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.”

― Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story

It was cold, very cold.

He was late, as always.

He had forgotten again.

It was always like that these days.

He never meant to, but somehow he always did.

His thoughts were interrupted by the harsh beeping of his phone.

He looked down at the screen.

It was as he expected.

With the help of my friends at Komshe all royalties from sales of my book belgradestreets will now be donated to the fund to help victims of the tragic floods in Serbia.

The heroes of this time are the people of Serbia who have come together with their neighbours to help those who are suffering.

floods…поплаве - a post without pictures

It is hard, perhaps insulting, to write about tragedy from a distance.

Words are of no help to those who are struggling on a daily basis with the simple business of staying alive.

People without power, without water to drink.

People without homes, their lives torn asunder by the elements.

This post is a tribute to the unsung heroes of Belgrade and beyond in the Balkan region.

Those who…
