Absolutely amazing images, Roxana. Thank you for this trip to Storybookland right in the middle of my dumbdull day!! ♥
the capital they are talking about here is of course Veliko Tarnovo, i must check when they changed it to Sofia. if one goes up the hill to visit the impressive fortress, Tsarevetz, then one can see the entire town from there, it is really an astonishing sight.
thank you, Lydia, wow you were just here :-)the place is indeed so picturesque and on top of that the people are very kind and the food healthy and gorgeous (the yoghurt/cucumber salads and soups, with olive oil and walnuts are a delight). i think it is one of the places one must really see on a trip to eastern europe.
I have a friend who dances on the streets of Sofia now and then. I can see it is quite magical and why she would want to dance there. Your photographs help me understand her. I am back to 'Enchanted'.
These are absolutely stunning, Roxana!
ah my beautiful friend, how enchanting all this history and your black and white photos that allow us to paint the human pageant over the timeline.you must be enjoying this beauty and this deep sense of history.thanks for sharing with us.belle continuation du voyage.je t'embrasse.
Tremendous, again! You have fused the past and the present in hauntingly evocative images.
Coucou Roxana...j'ai eu la sensation de penetrer sur la pointe des pieds dans une ville de contes de fées...j'aime tes tableaux urbains ,tu donnes un aspect magique aux villes que tu photographies...un air du passé apporté par un vent de poésie...un souffle d'ailleurs...merveilles ..bises ..:)
These really are so outstanding, so lushly beautiful. Can I borrow one?
How beautiful this city that I so love. Thank you for bringing it back, in your own unique style, even more beautiful than I remember it.
Six. Eight. Nine.
enchanting pictures - of an enchanting town
ganz wunderbar und märchenhaft, Deine Bilder. Eine Freude, sie zu betrachten...!Dir liebe Grüsse, Prinzessin!Renée
All vacation snapshots should be so good.
What a cool old city. I often feel as if I've entered an enchanting fairy tale when I come here and this time is no exception. Sharon up there expresses my feelings as well, and I love the black and white!
Well that settles it, i'm packing my butterfly net and leaving for V-T in the morning.
i used to work with a bulgarian guy and he was always banging on at me that if i ever went to bulgaria this is where i should go and particularly have a wander along the fortress walls. looking at these i can hear his voice!
myth, that such connections are made possible through the internet... i can't stop wondering about it!!! :-)i haven't yet had the chance to comment on Ana's video, i totally loved it... (i will, soon).b, really? i remember you liked my tree-over-paris photo as well, maybe it is just a thing about nature and dwellings merging which appeals to you :-)Madeleine, thank you for your kind wishes, i was indeed enjoying everything, deeply :-)Sharon, i think this is just one of those haunting places, indeed (thank you!)
Lynne, indeed :-)Clo, je te remercie de tes doux mots (et des coquelicots aussi, tu en entendras davantage :-)bisous, de tout coeur.b, hello again - but of course, it is an honour to be present this way on the BS :-)Cristina, someday we should walk there together :-)anonymous,one, two, four wold be my choice, if choose i must.
liebste Renée, ich bin so gluecklich, dass die Bilder Dir so viel Freude bereitet haben :-)Michael :-)thanks for saying this, as i found myself researching for the origin of the term 'snapshot' and i ended up reading about "snapshot aesthetic" within american fine art photography. learning learning and more learning (to paraphrase Lenin's 'learn, learn, learn' which is one phrase which was used to torment all pupils in the old days in this part of the world).Stickup, if the Bridge is like an enchanting fairy tale to you, then i am both happy and proud :-)Prospero,as every Nabokov-fan is expected to do, of course! :-)well, swiss, i had been meaning to tell you this but i haven't found the time yet, i was shocked to discover that the region had actually become a british colony, the first thing one sees upon entering the old city is a british bookshop, there are real estate agencies run by british people all over the place, they even have their own pamphlet for the local community of expats - quite amazing, actually! i read there that this flourishing business had been hit by the crisis as well, but still people come and buy cheap houses there and (especially) in the villages all around.
