Wonder can also be a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. desire or be curious to know something or a feeling doubt. What is something that you wonder?

BLACK & WHITE "STREETS"

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The paths we walk daily, we call them streets. We built this world from scratch, into the magnificent masterpiece that it is now. The towering cities with their sky scrapers, blinding lights and bustling pedestrians. The little towns with bagel shops and Sunday church services where people know each other. The outer villages, with the
prosperous fields, the grazing sheep trotting their hoof-paved paths, and tractors growling along on small, one lane roads. Urban, suburban, rural, you name it… These landscapes fill our daily lives, minds and hearts. Now, discover a whole new world, and make it BLACK and WHITE!
