Call me, call me any, anytime’

Remember a time? A time before mobiles, the internet? Remember when the only way to call, was this?
This week, I wasn’t sure how to respond to the WordPress weekly challenge ‘surprise‘.
Then, surprisingly, the road caught fire in the middle of the night.
The fire continues to perplex the gas and electricity utility companies, although thankfully, the firemen appear remarkably relaxed as the electric company dig a hole in order to isolate the electric cables.
There may be more ‘surprises’ to come.
Delighted to report that an image from belgradestreets was recently featured in the January 2017 edition of Condé Nast Travel Magazine in China.
My book belgradestreets featuring a series of my photographs of Belgrade, Serbia is on sale in bookshops and online.
Each year, royalties from the sale of belgradestreets are donated to charitable organisations caring for children in need in Serbia.
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back

No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories
― Haruki Murakami
voices, filled (the air)
have, one more
(warm) fingers, tracing, searching
did they (who watched) care
have, one more
more, and more
no one (really) saw
or so, it seemed
yes (they cared, oh how so much)
told, no lies
don’t be scared
choose, the blue
ride, the red
This week, my poetry prompt is red
That’s rule number one for a photographer, isn’t it? Fill your frame?
