Village Museum (Muzeul Satului): Wood, Windows, Stairs and Time (I)



















The Village Museum 

The Village Museum in Bucharest ( my favorite place ) -
is one of the most original and fascinating open air museums
 and contains an unique collection of original peasant homes (they are preserved just as they were 1-2 centuries ago) drawn from around Romania.
Here you can see some details of carved wood!
Usualy I spend  4-5 hour each every two weeks. Is like a timeless journey through
history.

ai un simţ al detaliului,... frumos;
poate a doua (umbra balustradei pe trepte) şi a cincea (treptele şi pavajul de piatră) mi se par inedite...

The wall of the tree lets me feel warmth of the Nature.

Thank you.

There is something about aged wood that conveys wisdom and strength. You have captured those qualities beautifully, Wind. Thank you!

Well seen, and fine shots for the day.

Breathless - these are incredible. Stark composition, simple shapes, muted hues, and pops of color - so nice.

I love how almost each photograph includes either a window, door, or stairs...all items that convey time..time spent, time looking, time seeing, time going to or from. Very nice lead-in to the song of the same title "Time". You really think about these things, don't you! A true artist.

Ca si in alte serii si aici imi plac ferestrele. In general, iubesc lemnul si structura sa.

This is an amazing place, I like the way that you have caught the light at its best and the composition is fantastic. Nice one to end with reminding us where it came from. I would love to find a museum like this... otherwise I need to spend 4 - 5 hours every two weeks looking at these pictures !! regards, J

Excellent use of textures!

I've been tens of times at the Village Museum but I never see things as you do, wind.
Big big hug from Rome, my friend.

What a fantastic collection of austere beauty (now there's an ironic term you rarely get to use!)

What a wonderful museum, although I admit to liking the little bug the most. What must the world look like to him? Vast, vast, vast.

Just a bug explorer, trundling across Planet Wood, probably after a thorough examination of the Sea of Dirt.

interesante linii si umbre asezate pe planul fotografiei

Wind:

Stunning, each unique photo capturing the soul of the architecture. And the little lady bug, perfection.

I too spend time at such places, and look and touch each grain of wood, every rock, there is something calming and poetic about it.

Special series, with wonderful textures and frames very suggestive, using some of the photos an attractive abstract language.

Luzia said...

What a lot of phantastic details and struktured images from this open air museum. If I would live near them, I would go there often, too. I love this kind of timeless journey through
history. Hugs from Luzia.
