Wedding

For everything is a first time and for me last week-end was the first time shooting at a weeding, a new and exciting experience. It had also plenty of fun.

To my advantage, I was the second photographer, leaving on the shoulder of my friend Dee all the serious and classic stuff, having for me the freedom to do anything I wanted, so I put the wide lenses on and tried most of the time extreme and crazy angles.

It was also useful that the bride and the groom are my friends, we had good interaction, and as photographers they understood my needs.

If you wonder, yes, this was the reason for me visiting Râșnov and eating sarmale 🙂

Papa bun!

When talking about traditional Romanian food, there are basically two very known options: mititei and sarmale (there are some other dishes, but those two are simply the most known). Since I talked earlier about mici, now is the time for sarmale: minced meat rolled in pickled cabbage leaves, served with sour cream, mămăliga, some smoked meat and hot peppers. Red wine on the side, of course!

The summer of poppies

Near the end of May, is almost summer here, the time of the summer flowers. And you don’t need to go too far, fields of poppies are also inside the city (if you know where to look for them, of curse):

Râșnov citadel

The Râșnov citadel in pretty much in ruins, but still some parts of it are somewhat functional, like this little alley leading to a couple of souvenir shops. Too bad for the modern ice-cream sign, otherwise one may have a medieval feeling.

Counter-Strike, map level: Moara lui Assan

This was a Counter-Strike themed shooting that happened at the ruins of Moara lui Assan (Assan’s Mill) in Bucharest. The weather was far from the best, with rain and clouds, resuling in very bad light, but we did all we could… and I think the result is not entirely bad.

Tuning show 2011

In the past years I visited the tuning show and came back here with some photos, now in 2011 the title and the organizers changed, but the show happened again and I was there too. Still havind a large backlog on unprocessed photos, but I can put here some highlights:

We love ice cream

Of course we love ice cream, don’t you too? The only question is: cocoa, vanilla or both?

History mismatch

Two nazi soldiers and a MiG 15 in the background, that’s quite a history mismatch surprised in the backyard of the Military Museum of Bucharest for the “museum day”, when the access was open, demos and parades with old costumes happened. And they had beas from the cauldron, military style!

Make love, not war

There is no war, the tanks are sitting at the Military Museum for decades, the vegetation conquered them. Still, the love part is lacking to a great degree…

Air Show on Lacul Morii

Saturday with a few friends I attended a show with boats and airplanes on Lacul Morii in Bucharest. From my point of view, the most spectacular part was the finale, with those planes and their smoggy trains, drawing on the sky.

Vamă

This year I spent my May Day holiday with a few friends in Vamă, which is pretty much a Romanian tradition. Unfortunately the weather was totally uncooperative, my mood not the best and didn’t have the full gear (is not the place for that). Overall, it was an experience:
