Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure!

"…only we pass by it all, like a rush of air." Rilke, and an Adventure on #belgradestreets — Weekly Photo Challenge

“Look: the trees exist; the houses we dwell in stand there stalwartly.
Only we pass by it all, like a rush of air.
And everything conspires to keep quiet about us, half out of shame perhaps, half out of some secret hope.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

“Life is an endless cycle of souls, swirling along the path of the universe, being reborn, but never truly dying before being reborn again.
As long as this cycle continues, we will never really die.”

― Ameila Wolfe

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.
