Like many people, I suspect, I am saddened to see the unannounced demise of the WordPress weekly photo challenge, in the early days of belgradestreets the weekly prompts from the WordPress team often offered a much needed spur to action, and in my case helped me make a dream real.
The WordPress team, and their occasional guests, created a cherished sense of community. They will be missed.
How to choose a favourite? Not exactly Sophie’s Choice I know, but hey guys, you may be ripping out the soul from your blogging platform. Why not at least have issued some kind of warning, canvassed opinion, or even sought out those willing to carry the torch?
So, I publish again my very first photo for this esteemed challenge, and if you’d like to see the whole set from belgradestreets then here you go.
And, I wonder.

Sometimes we all have to paint a very big line on the street.
And choose where we stand.

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.
