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.

Royalties from the sales of belgradestreets in 2015 were donated to the orphanage for abandoned children, ‘Dom za decu Vera Blagojevic’ in Banja Koviljača.
I was left speechless by the two pictures that the children provided to me as a thank you.
In turn, I thank everyone who has purchased copies of my book, and my publishers at Komshe for helping make this possible.
Thrilled to announce that that the team at the Belgrade Foreign Visitor’s Club have decided to combine their popular “Thirsty Thursday Event” with my exhibition at Klub Dvoristance this Thursday evening, 23 July at 19:00 .
Do hope you can come and thanks again to Dimitrije and Branko and all their colleagues at Komshe!
