Circling gulls

Rest in peace, kitty

Dutza, November 1998 - 20 January 2019. We didn't want her. We didn't deserve her. And now it's all tears in the rain. Rest in peace, kitty.

Location matters

As part of my move here, I better sorted some of the photos on my hard drive. And it turns out there are more of them from Parcul Circului than from any other park, even Cişmigiu where I used to take my big camera twice a year. It's a special place like that, and it matters. On the other hand, none of them are among those I consider my best. That's interesting.

Maybe it's time to consciously seek out other places. To be more deliberate again when choosing subjects. Can't easily upload large batches here, anyway. Might as well adapt.

As we say in Romania, man blesses the place. But one needs a place to bless first. Cheers.

Winter Willows

(Weeping willows with dried leaves lining a road along a drained canal.)

One of my favorite vistas from Parcul Plumbuita, Bucharest, this time in winter.

Circus in winter

(A circular building with wavy roof, behind snow-covered fir trees.)

Circul de Stat, a little-known landmark of Bucharest, that deserves better.

Birds on the water
