Sibiu , Hermannstadt - The City's Eyes














































Sibiu is a city in TransylvaniaRomania
Sibiu is the symbol of a deep and abiding culture that has stood the test of centuries. Labyrinth of stones and secrets, lights and shades, the old town shows stories of the time passing and where the time seems to have stopped as well.
The old Sibiu possesses much of its erstwhile charm, a character carefully preserved, hopefully for posterity.
“Enchanting picturesque” would be the words to describe the special aura which emanates from Sibiu. The tiled roofs with odd angles ventilation slats watching the town creates an eerie very unique impression.

Bonza photos. Is big brother behind those spooky eyes watching every move you make :-).

I am certain it has been said over and over again, but I will say it anyway: Do you suppose the residents of Sibiu have a feeling of always being watched?

You have a great series, Daliana, with its history and heritage aspects and its photographic artistry.

It always is a pleasure to visit your page and to see your work.

Felicitari esti cel mai bun fotograf intalnit de mine pe bloguri.
Fotografiile tale pe langa faptul ca sunt perfecte din punct de vedere tehnic, fapt la care multi pot ajunge investind in tehnica, au ceva mai mult, au continut si substanta , caracteristici care tin de valoarea omului din spatele obiectivului

o zi placuta sa ai!

Imi place Sibiul si imi plac foarte mult casele din oras...

Sunt de fapt aerisirile de la poduile caselor, oricum arata bine si sunt interesante ...

Frumoase pozele tale, Daliana, ca de oboicei :P

Sibiului i s-a potrivit ca o mănuşă proiectul Capitală Culturală Europeană. Acum parcă îi lipseşte ceva, nu mai ajunge la ştiri... I-ar trebui un festival de muzică barocă, o săptămână a teatrului de pantomimă, un festival de muzică religioasă... nu ştiu, un punct de atracţie internaţional.
