Congrats to Memographer.com! Today this travel photo journal is celebrating its 8th Anniversary!
I am back from my EuroTrip 2019 (Minsk, Belarus & Amsterdam, Netherlands) and excited to open the photo series. The trip, by the way, was fun. In June-July, Minsk was hosting the 2nd European Games. So its streets and venues were full of activities related to the Games. For this photo post I have selected a mix of black-and-white Sport and Street photography. Enjoy!
