Freezing cold

At -9°C is way far from the worst keen frost I saw, but believe me, is a really cold morning in this end-of-year day, witness the ice powder on those trees. I want, no, I need warmth. Now.

From Santa with love…

I found this old picture made with a crappy camera… I may not look exactly like it now, but that’s how I feel inside, so here is a season greetings from the Evil Santa: “choke on your Festivus, have a bloody Xmas and a fucking New Year!”

Misery

It was about the time for me to choose the next week topic for Project 9449, so I started developing ideas, the first of them was “Misery”, then “Season of Joy” and a few others, but then I got a better one (to be announced at the right time). Since I had “Misery” on a corner of my mind and also a potential implementation for it, when I saw the opportunity on the street I shoot it. It also helped those days I feel myself a lot like this hobo…

Love/Hate64

I have solid reasons to hate F64 but at the same time I must continue doing business with them, since on many photography areas they are the only source in town (there are a few other smaller stores with good goods, but not everything you need), so yesterday I had to give them a visit for a few of accessories (filters, belt, adapter). It was a nice surprise to receive, as any other customer, a small Christmas gift some small trinkets: stickers, odorizer, strap and ginger bread. Know what? I am stupid enough that my first thought was at someone else who would have been even more happier with such a gift…

Mici and bere at Curtea Berarilor

For a while we practically moved the headquarter of the FLOSS meetings at Curtea Berarilor (Brewer’s Court) in Bucharest and since then I wanted to take a photo with their most popular (and a modern Romanian tradition) menu: mici, fries, mustard, pickles and, of course, plenty of beer. Every time people were hungry and I missed the opportunity. Until now…

Or in other words: I am Mitica 🙂

Fairy tale fabric

This is the stuff the fairy tales are made of:

snow

And looking closely you can see its crystalline texture:

To bad life is not a fairy tale…

E.M.M.A., Santa, and the Ghost Nicu

Sunday I participated with Organizatia E.M.M.A. as a photographer to a charity action, where a group of people from this NGO donated all kings of things, from food to toys and sweets to a children center. It was an opportunity for we to depart from my glamour or depressive styles and try something more like photojournalism.

Still… I am not myself much than a little kid in a huge (and hairy) body, so from the normal photographer – subject interaction, it was not far to get into full play, we could resonate. They were in need for affection, happy to get it and to give back when receiving. Pretty much like me. And all of us cursed in the end.

The photo above is, obviously, not made by me, so credit where it’s due, it was “stolen” from Bogdan‘s gallery.

I am again in the sucky world, so didn’t have the energy to go in-depth with photo processing and publishing, so for now here is just a big photo dump from the event.


The season of what?

The season of joy? Yes, it came, the city lights were turned on a couple of days ago. However… don’t expect much joy this Christmas… it definitely be a lonely one.
