Day: <span>July 24, 2009</span>

Sitting like a fly on the… fence

A warm, sunny summer morning… the fly is a being too, with full rights to enjoy the sun.

Bucharest at the golden hour

Lifting a quote straight from Wikipedia:

"In photography, the golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour, especially in cinematography) is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day, when a specific photographic effect is achieved with the quality of the light."

As I stumbled around the city center around the golden hour a couple of days ago, I just had to take a few shots in that magic light:

….mmmmm, pizza! Hot pizza!

Pizza Diavolla with extra mozzarella and extra pepperoni, hot sauce and a cold beer on the side. Heaven (pun intended).

Enache

My bad joke is like: if her name is not Enache already, it should be. Laptaria lu’ Enache. Sorry, but I think she its impressive and I believe all natural. +1.

I tried hard to get the best shot, so hard that in the end I got noticed, which reduced the "candid" impact. So is life… too many people crossing the road, not enough chanced for a clear shot.

Summer in the city

I always hated the megalomaniacal constructions in the center of the city at Piața Unirii, I think they are an ugly remaining of the dreaded communist era and are making Bucharest uglier.

Summer in the city

But passing there is a torrid summer day the large number of fountains in the middle of the crammed traffic is somewhat refreshing.

Summer in the city

And I find even more refreshing the life around those fountains, both beasts and people are enjoying the water.

I think the dog puts in perspective the "dog day" expression and also I envy his his freedom.
