I have been very lucky in life, in some ways.

You may choose whether you agree. Or you may not.

I have circumnavigated the globe by air. Twice. In both directions. In Business Class. Pampered and spoiled. Wined and dined. And once, just once, in First Class, been plied with glass after glass of Krug until wheels up, before flying across half the world in a goose down duvet with tea served in a china cup by a flight attendant who actually appeared to genuflect.

As a senior official in the Federal Government of the Commonwealth of Australia, I found myself invited by Qantas to pass through the hidden portal of the Chairman’s Lounge, rubbing shoulders with Ministers of the Commonwealth…

belgradestreets

Kalemegdan park hosts exhibitions of blown up photographs on the terrace that overlooks the Sava.

Right now there are three such displays.

A series of outstanding images from Moscow.

So, a quick check back through my collection unearthed my selection of doors from belgradestreets.

Here are six of my own favourites.
