“with whips and chains
to see him fly
so many die”

bulevar vojvode mišića

break on through...

This week’s (late) post features a street that I suspect many only see as they hurry through in their cars, trams or buses.

Images I snatched between meetings, waiting for trams, taxis.

Like all belgradestreets it pays to pause a while.

Look, reflect, think, imagine, wonder.

BIGZ, the Sajam Fair, retail outlets, apartment buildings, cafes, people waiting for the bus, the tram.


Political posters.

A street as rich in life and detail as many others.

And, signs of reconstruction emerging as the cranes and excavators start work around the BIGZ building.

So, if you have not yet visited belgradestreets, you should do so soon, before it is rebuilt and loses some of its unique character.
