Pictures from 2015 and before.
Winter shots, December 2014.
Bucharest, June 2015
The pictures in this album are photos I took when I was just beginning to learn about photography more professionally.
My belief is that, even though they were not works of art, they did reflect my inner self in an indirect manner.
In April 2015, there was a tour of Bucharest going on outside the bloc in which I lived. I took a look outside. Right as I was looking at the group, the man leading the group said “and here, you can see a communist bloc.”
At that point, everybody turned and looked at the building, and more specifically at me, as I was in the window. Right then, I snapped a picture of the group with my tablet.
Here it is.
I did not know I lived in a communist landmark. It’s interesting how marketing works and how you can turn a regular building into a touristic sight.
I usually don’t enjoy photographs that have a before story (and mostly and after one too), because I think the photograph itself should tell the story, but I think in this case, it does work.
LeBeau in HDR, funny post cards and vintage style pictures.
While is was in Brasov, before going off to Bucharest, I got to take a few pictures of the town I live in in the month that titles my blog.
It’s a very fast changing atmosphere, with trees going from gold to brown in an instant, with crazy weather and mystic sunsets.
I only selected a few photos, but I did take more and now I’m looking through them. You can see the big hill and the park and even though that doesn’t cover the whole atmosphere, it sure does express a lot.
Here they are.
I could not have thought that Braşov would be the host of the small winter Olympic games. This February,
Braşov was the host of the European Youth Olympic Festival. I guess they call it a festival because it’s a legal thing why they don’t call it the “Olympic Games”. Anyway, a year ago I did not know that this was such a big deal. But it was. The Olympic torch was brought here from Greece, there was a big opening ceremony (not as big as the London Olympic Games of course) and all the shabang. It all went from the 17th to the 21st of February. It’s great that there are Olympic Games for people under 18, I’m sure some of them will be participating in the OGs. I was also at the opeing cereomny, but not on the stadium, which was
reserved for VIPs.
Mai demult nu aş fi crezut că oraşul Braşov va fi gazda variantei mai mici a Jocurilor Olimpice de iarnă. În luna februarie a lui 2013, Braşovul a fost gazda FOTE, Festivalului Olimpic al Tineretului European. Mi se pare că se numeşte “Festival ” şi nu “Jocuri Olimpice” din raţiuni legale. Nu ştiam acum un an că va fi aşa un mare lucru, dar a fost. Flacăra olimpică a fost adusă aici din Grecia şi a avut loc o ceremonie frumoasă de deschidere, cu toate
că nu a fost ca cea de la JO de la Londra. FOTE a durat din 17 până pe 21 februarie. Mi se pare grozav că există JO pentru tineri sub 18 ani. Sunt sigur că mulţi dintre ei vor ajunge la olimpiadele mari. Am fost şi eu la ceremonia de deschidere, dar nu am avut loc pe stadion, pentru că a fost rezervat VIP-urilor.
The Hunyad castle is one of Romania`s most beautiful monuments. The Gothic construction was built between the XIVth and, surprisingly, XIXth century. It is filled with history and legends, being a great touristic attraction for both non-Romanians and Romanians. Here are a few snapshots I took when I was there for the 2nd time (2012) Click on the first image to start the slideshow
Castelul Huniazilor este unul din cele mai frumoase monumente din România. Construcţia gotică a fost construită între secolele XIV şi, în mod surprinzător, XIX. Castelul este plin de istorie şi legende, fiind o mare atracţie turistică atât pentru români cât şi pentru străini. Aici vedeţi câteva fotografii pe care le-am făcut când am fost acolo a 2a oară (2012). Click pe prima imagine ca să vedeţi slideshow-ul
