Purple daisies

The saying is something like "if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it is a duck", so as if I don’t know much about flowers, it this looks like a daisy (but is purple) then it should be a purple daisy.

Daisy from Berlin

Daisies are beautiful and macros of daisies are also beautiful, of course.

Those look pretty much like some flowers from my garden, but I don’t know their name anyway.

Maybe this could have used a larger depth of field

Pizza

When the pizza is free and tasty and the beer is plenty and not excessively expensive all is good (it would be perfect if the beer was also free, but let’s not be that unreasonable). The fingers get greasy and people faces happy.

Flensburger

Mmmm… beer.. German beer… It should be cold and a lot of it.

Group photo at FUDCon

I am not entirely happy with how this group photo came up, but taking into consideration the constraints (no decent tripod available, bad light, crowded place), it may not be that bad after all…

We are Fedora!

Zoo

Sorry for posting like this, I know the proper way was to make individual posts, with short introductions and references, but the Zoo trip was unplanned and I am time contrained, unable to make the proper research, so here are some photos, just photos.

But one more think before jumping to the pictures: I used to hate the Zoos, based on my experience with the Bucharest Zoo, which is small and horrible, with a lot of tortured animals. Well, the Berlin Zoo is a world apart, it’s awesome.

Rain on the window

The weather in Berlin is about the same with what I left in Bucahrest: rainy.

Berlin

For a few days I am in Berlin for a Fedora (Linux) Conference, FUDCon, so I am using the opportunity to take a lot of photos. One of the first things to notice was the garbage on the street, seeing it I started to doubt my view on the street garbage in Bucharest

Street garbage in Berlin

I aslo encountered weird people on bikes, like you see on photo jokes from China:

Street

But the bunnies in the huge park/forest near the Tegel airport weree absolutely amazing and unexpected:

And the open display of the hookers on street was somehow a new sight for a boy from Bucharest:

Rain in the city

Rain in Bucharest is doom and gloom, the city usually gets near to a collapse:

But at least some look like enjoying it (or at least being affected not that much):

Mmmm…. chocolate… and raspberries…

Tried to remake an older shot, from about a year ago, but there are some differences: the chocolate is weaker (Heidi Dark versus an almighty Lindt) but the fruits are more interesting, both as color and taste (raspberries versus strawberries). What would you take?

Small portraits

Enough is enough, so I had to end being a softie by posting a last batch of "cute" portraits, so I can go back to my usual self.
