airport books…

One freezing cold day in January 2011, I arrived at this airport, tired and anxious about the future

I had no idea how much my life would change because of this city, and the people who live and work there

The book was a lucky break

I will never be able to to give back what the city and the people who live there gave to me but I will never stop trying 

And thank you to Komshe for all your support 


#photo101 wrap up

Big thank you to The Daily Post from WordPress for featuring my photo “glass” from “through a glass darkly” in their wrap up post for a great month of phototography and friendship.



Check out the other great photographers featured by The Daily Post team here.

You can also see my #photo101 contributions from my “other” blog featuring the streets of België here.

And take a look at some of my favourite photographic companions from #photo101 by clicking here or by clicking on the links below.

See Eastern Europe through the eyes of a self confessed negativist existentialist (who actually is anything but negative) with a thing about cats and railways and who almost convinced us that converge was a swear word Mara Eastern’s Personal Blog – a life in pictures and words

Take a look at the Netherlands, and Brazil, with my almost neighbour lucile de godoy – bridging lacunas

Explore Justine’s eclectic world, into which I insisted on introducing aliens, at Eclectic odds n sods – Parenting, Pet Tales, Humour & Photography

And meet Mitch with whom I discussed Thunderbirds, atomic powered jets and drew comparisons with Ansel Adams at Exploratorius – Photo Hack & Curious Wanderer

And look out for more from belgradestreets soon…

thank you Komshe and all who have purchased the belgradestreets book

With the help of my friends at Komshe all royalties from sales of my book belgradestreets will now be donated to the fund to help victims of the tragic floods in Serbia.

The heroes of this time are the people of Serbia who have come together with their neighbours to help those who are suffering.

With no concern for their own safety, or their own daily problems, they have selflessly and tirelessly worked to help those in need.

And they are still doing so and need our help now.

I would like to say a very special thank you to Komshe and every person who has bought a copy of my book and so made it possible to help in this way.
