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.

So thrilled today to receive my very own copy of my second book featuring my images of Belgrade. Thank you Dimitrije and Branko at Komshe!

And happy to let you know that an event in Belgrade to promote the book and exhibit some of my photos is being planned for this Summer.

Watch this space and thank you for following belgradestreets!

                                         bombed and blasted
                                                   built and rebuilt
                                            they changed the street names
                                             and never forgot their names
                                                                        and now,
                                                           it's all ephemeral
