Bucharest - City and Souls







































R.E.M.new album Collapse Into Now  :

the kids have a new take
a new take on faith
pick up the pieces
get carried away
I came home to city half erased
I came home to face what we faced
this place needs me here to start
this place is the beat of my heart

Michael Stipe

frumos surpins
se simte spiritul orasului
pe fundalul cladirilor vechi

ADRIAN said...

Yet again an inspirational post. I love the light in these.

Windsmoke. said...

More fantastic black and white photos you've done well again my favourites are the 7th photo with the reflection and the 11th of the fountain :-).

Andras said...

Frumos, interesanta serie cu spiritul orasului!

Traveling Hawk said...

O serie care pare de fotografii de epoca daca nu ar aparea, ici si colo, elmentele de modernitate. "Teapa" strica peisajul orasului in acel loc, pacat! In plus, reclama aceea uriasa este chiar pe Palatul Victoria sau e undeva, in fata sa? Eu nu as permite mash-uri pe cladirile valoroase din punct de vedere istoric, arhitectonic, etc., mai ales intr-o capitala...

I remember this city app. from more than 20 yaers ago:)

găsesc interesantă opţiunea ca TOATE imaginile să fie monocrom...
chiar şi videoclipul iese în evidenţă, are personalitate...
ştii ceva? tu tânjeşti după locuri pitoreşti din natură, ţin minte câteva comentarii la postări de-ale mele; regreţi că te învârţi prin Piaţa Amzei,... dar locurile acelea-ţi sunt dragi. Aşa, dărăpănate şi murdare, şi-n toate felurile,... se simte că fac parte din structura ta genetică... acolo e cuibul tău...
Am I wrong?

Town and human being.
The both seem to be wrapped in the history.

The landmark architectures have a life sense.

Thank you.

Two Tigers said...

Beautiful series, truly captures the spirit and contrasts of a great city - the old and the new, the sad and the joyful existing side by side. Yes, I agree with Windsmoke, the shot of the fountain is wonderful!

Kevin P. said...

Very beautiful photos ! You have a real photographer talent !

the elder said...

Un portret 100% realist al orasului gri. SUPERBE fotografiile!

Kaya said...

Wind, this city is a city of contrasts and that is what makes it very interesting. I like cities of contrasts, they have their own unique faces and stories.

Beautiful photography!!!!!!!!!!! For me photography in black and white always intriguing.

Have a nice and creative weekend!!!!

Bucarest, beautiful place!

Out on the prairie said...

Amazing captures, I went through them a number of times.I was in the forest today and thought in B&W with a lot of my shots in the snow.

Hi Wind, this is a great post that looks beyond the tourist aspect as we realise that real people live here. Thanks for sharing your openness and honesty from your city as the lyrics of the song has put everything into perspective. I like the fountain picture, not only is it a superb image but it demonstrates life and a piece of happiness. I always think that an outdoor market like the one you have displayed is the soul of a city too. Just wondering who the local graffiti artist is in the last image !!! regards, J

Bucharest must be an interesting place to live and a fascinating city to visit, and I appreciate you guiding me on tours such as this one, Wind.

The fine quality of your work always brings your photographs to life and makes them a pleasure to view.

Anamaria said...

black and white pictures are so special! Your work is very strong and meaningful Daliana

ρομπερτ said...

Thank you for this journey through the city. Feels as if the place and the people inside, are about to 'move ahead', make things work, hopefully in a good and nice way.

Hope much to be able to see this place myself one time. Please have a wonderful weekend.

Superbe imagini. Frumoasa si prelucrarea si in ton cu senzatia pe care o ai privind imiginile.
