A statue of Lenin, in Budapest. With a bird on his finger.


Like Robinson Crusoe: "Look ! Footsteps on the sand !"

Delete or not delete

I found a underexposed photo and before push the delete button I tried to see what if  I process it with photomatix. You may see the result below...

Here a picture from my window.

I've found interesting HDR processing and I decided to give it a try. Not the best picture available, but the others are on dvd and I'm not in the mood for search.

Monday, January 25, 2010


I found another interesting blog and nice tutorial about HDR. If you have will... take a look: .  I've picked randomly a photo (at a pretty low resolution) and made a hdr from a single file. I didn't bother to edit it very carefully.  You may guess which is the original.

Sleeping beauty...

Seems that is a good idea to take a nap in a coolness room when outside the sky is melting and any living thing is fighting for a breath...


Early in the morning, when sun rises above the sea...

I found this (ancient) device on a table in a friend's office and I took it out for a photo.


Sibiu, also known as Hermannstadt, a very nice place to visit. Full of history and ancient buildings; here in pictures you can see the passage of the stairs linking the upper town to the lower town. Also you may find well preserved and stunning defense walls and defense towers, the Bruckental museum, cathedrals and beautiful squares surrounded by lovely restaurants. As usual, for more visit


Some pictures from last summer holiday, far away from crowd, noise, tv, internet...

16th century Monastery

Cathedral of Curtea de Arges, dedicated to Saint Nicholas. It resembles a very large and elaborate mausoleum, built in Byzantine style, with Moorish arabesques. For more info


Night shot of full size ship at the entrance (or exit...) of Constanta city. Unfortunately I could't catch the moon in picture, as it was high and my "tripod" was a rock found in the grass.

Hunting something... It has a bad habit (for me) to catch almost every night a mouse around the garden and leave it at the door. But otherwise... it is cute, despite the fact that one eye is green and the other one blue...

Bear's Cave

I visited this cave when I was very little and since then each year I wanted to revisit it. Finally, I made it... and was awesome to realize that 30 years passed like in no time...
The name of the cave came from some 15000 yrs. old well preserved bears fossils.
And, funny fact, in this cave you may see a natural formation on the ceiling that looks like a trapped bear.
Anyway, you can find interesting facts on
If you intend to visit it... go there with a rented car. Your personal car only if you want to ruin it.

A man apart...

Browsing some old photos I found this picture of a man walking on the beach, in a frozen wind.

Cluj Napoca

On the way back home I passed trough Cluj Napoca, also known as Klausenburg, a very beautiful and interesting city where I lived for two or three years, and stopped by to take a photo at dawn. I am not very proud with postprocessing but hope you will like as it is...
For more info about the city, access .


Moments befor take-off...
Photo taken with a Canon A610 Powershot. Post processed a litte and I think it looks interesting. Actually the London sky isn't so dramatical but is beautifully strange.

I found on the beach this rusty boat, sailing on deep sand and high grass, waiting for better days perhaps. So I took a shot and processed as a HDR.

Quit smoking

I try hard to quit smoking... Not for health reasons (these shoud be the main) but from a financial point af wiew. I just made an arithmetic exercise and... guess what: 15yrs. x 2 pks. x 365 dys. x price  =  HUGE.

Goodbye blue sky...

Piano under a shoe

I shot for a friend... wedding day...


No watching tv, no computer, no internet, no fax, no radio... And it was awesome...


Stonehenge, surrounded by green hills.  Quite impressive in the middle of nowhere. Hundreds or thousands years ago people used this site to worship at their gods, probably... who knows? And now different kind of people whorship the place. If you have the occasion to visit it... do it.

Lying on the coach... bride's bouquet, from a shot at a wedding last summer...

Handwork... Artwork...

A friend's hands at work.
I always wanted to take a picture of him at work and finally succeeded... Here, finishing my bag. Always is amazing for me to watch him punching, cuting, sewing leather by hand. If you enlarge picture you can see all those holes punched at very equal space...  And truly amazing work. From Harley bags, to shotgun holders, to belts for jeans. I know he made a guitar strip for Nightwish.


Birds... like in a Hitchcock movie... flying over my head...

Cold Morning

Walking on the beach on a very cold morning with strong freezing wind, but interesting scenery. My hands were frozen and it took me a while to take the photo due to heavy shaking. I hope it worth...
