belgradestreets

andy townend captures the life and soul of belgrade, serbia

on being freshly pressed…

yesterday, I a captured a small selection of images on my iPhone, walking from the tram stop to my office

i am lucky, my walk involves passing along the fringe of Kalemegdan park in the centre of Belgrade

i was captivated by the look of the snow…the way it made belgradestreets seem so ethereal, so calm, so beautiful

so, when work was over, i posted a few of those images on my blog…and thought little more of it…

then, I received a message from WordPress.com that my blog had been selected to appear on the freshly pressed page

at the top of the page was a text box which read…“Freshly pressed: The best of 391,791 bloggers, 961,441 new posts, 933,945 comments, & 188,632,874 words posted today on WordPress.com” and just below was a link to belgradestreets

i was shocked, i will confess a tear came to my eye, what began as a bit of an experiment had been recognised, that moved me…changed things a little…

so, now i just want to thank all those who have visited me, those who visited early on and those who visited, commented and subscribed over the last few days

i just hope that i can continue to offer a window on to belgradestreets that brings you back…

once again, thank you to WordPress.com and all of you who have visited, liked, commented and followed…

i will return to capturing belgradestreets soon…but for now…a little more snow…

    Congratulations! You deserved it!
    P.S.: When are you going to buy a proper camera? I think it’s about time. 🙂

    Hi again! Absolutely love your photos of Belgrade. My favorite part of the day is looking at my email and finding out who of my blogging buddies has updated! You have a great flair for capturing specific moments in time. I like the umbrella photo specifically 😉

    Thank you (again), I am torn between the immediacy of capturing images with my iPhone and the sheer joy of using new Nikon…
