Coming Home To Belgrade | A Photo Story

posted in: Travel | 0

Seven years ago I was given my first DSLR camera. By the time I figured out how to use it in something other than Auto Mode, I was already well on my way to start a new chapter of my life in USA. In the meantime, I took on photography as a carrier and for the past six years I’ve been telling myself that next time I go back home I really want to take some pictures. Well, I finally did it. It was one of the most magical experiences to pretend to be a tourist in Belgrade. The colors, the sunsets, the people that joined me on the adventures… every time Belgrade reminds me that there could not have been a more beautiful place to grow up.

And since I’m not too good with words, I leave you with a photo story of a city that stole my heart, and I hope through these photos it steals yours as well.
