Sometimes we all have to paint a very big line on the street.

A boundary.

And choose where we stand.

recycled doors

andy townend:

This week’s DP weekly photo challenge https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/door/
was simply “door”.

Indulge me then for reposting my own post from October 2012 featuring some of my favourite doors of Belgrade?

Originally posted on belgradestreets:

Kalemegdan park hosts exhibitions of blown up photographs on the terrace that overlooks the Sava.

Right now there are three such displays.

A series of outstanding images from Moscow.

A captivating collection of images depicting each state of the USA.

And, for me, the best, a series of images of doors of Belgrade…

…which got me thinking…

So, a quick check back through my collection unearthed my selection of doors from belgradestreets.

Here are six of my own favourites.

Each week I take part in the DP WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, and post here and on my other blogs belgianstreets and andytownend.  The challenge this week was to incorporate all the colours of the rainbow.  My posts on the other two blogs each had an Australian flavour. In responding to a comment from my friend Lucile, I observed that I would be hard pressed to find an Australian hook for a post here on belgradestreets.

I was wrong as this post, which features street art from Vukov Spomenik, proves. Nemo, of course, spent a great deal of time in Sydney Harbour.

It is indeed a small, connected, world.
