This is my first collection of photographs of a single street in Belgrade.
My aim is to document a different street each week and in doing so reveal the character of the street and my own personal perceptions.
I have decided to start with Pariska, the street in which I work.
It is a beautiful street, passing Kalemegdan, offering glimpses of the Sava river and some beautiful and fascinating buildings.
This project is new and will develop and change as I settle into a weekly rhythm.
Thank your for taking an interest and I hope you come back to read my future posts and take a look at my photographs.
I welcome all comments and look forward to hearing from you.
And, wouldn’t it be great if I could encourage you to take a closer look at Belgrade, that is if you haven’t already done so!
…a city of contrast and colour
…trams from another age
…z marks the spot
…power lines to support the trams line many streets
…coach passes tram stop on Pariska
…one of numerous art exhibitions which line Belgrade’s streets
…tram wires frame library on intersection of Pariska and Kneza Mihaila
…Akademija Centar za Grafiki i Vizuelana Istrazivanja
…Beogradski Susreti 2011
…in winter the streets echo to the sound of melting snow on the rooftops rushing to the streets below
…every doorway tells a story
…penny for your thoughts
…misty eyed iconography
…behind locked doors
…standing in line
…do come in
…liberté, égalité, fraternité 1
…liberté, égalité, fraternité 2
…every wall has a story to tell
…trees of Kalemegdan line one side of Pariska
…easy to imagine the Beatles crossing Pariska…
…take me to your leader
…lines and graffiti
…graffiti adorns tram lines and walls
…steps leading up to Kalemegdan
…out of the mouths of lions
…toeing the line

I sort of stumbled upon this blog, and I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed these wonderful pictures of my hometown, a beautiful city in which I was born and lived in until I graduated from the University of Belgrade in 1992. Sadly I almost never get to visit Belgrade nowadays, but these beautiful photographs managed to remind me of its beauty. Thanks for brightening my afternoon!
Thank you for those words….makes the whole concept worthwhile…! Andy
