Notre dame de Paris

Notre Dame de Paris

Probably the thing I liked the most in Paris. The Notre Dame Cathedral. I liked it even more than the Eiffel Tower. It was so majestic and simply beautiful. Could not take my eyes from it. You can go around it several times and still find something you missed the last time.

Abandoned fortress

Abandoned fortress

Photography taken in Brasov, Romania. This is a fortress on top of a hill central in Brasov. It was surrounded by trees a few years ago but they mayor decided that it is better to cut all the trees nearby so the fortress can easily be spotted from everywhere around the city. Not sure if that was a good idea.
Anyway this is a view of it taken with a wide angle lens.
It says abandoned fortress but it’s not really abandoned. It’s just that it looks like.

Romanian parliament at night

Romanian parliament at night

For those who liked the photo from a few weeks before, here is the Romanian parliament at night. Same angle, same building, different time of day. It’s still very imposing and looks very powerful. It’s a huge building.

Romanian Parliament

Romanian parliament

One of my personal favorites. I got this beautiful sky behind the Romanian palace of parliament while I was biking my way to the Bike fest :). Since I got the new wide angel lens this time it was possible to get the whole building by standing in front of it, this way avoiding cars, people, wires etc.

Triumph arch by night

Triumph arch by night

And this is the third photo from the night-out escape. This one is my favourite. I tried alot of shots with this triumph arch but the problem was that it was a busy area even at night so I could not get a clear shot with my 50mm. So I had to burrow my girlfriends 18-55mm classic and try with it. It was way easier even though the sharpness is not the same.
Long time exposure, cars passing by, lots of interesting things happening in the photo. Do you like it?

Odeon theatre

Odeon theatre

Photo taken in Bucharest, at night, in front of the Odeon Theatre. Those green ligths
really got my attention and since I had my camera with me I gave it a shot.
From the looks of it it was worth it.
Night shots are always challenging but when you get what you wanted you will always say that it was worthing the effort :D.
