A timelapse of Bucharest

I recorded this over the course of two days (12-13 march 2017) in Bucharest’s Sector 1, with a very nice view of Herastrau Park, courtesy of our hotel room at the Pullman. We were there for our spring expo. Enjoy!

An evening walk through Sibiu’s historical center

Here are a few photos from a recent visit to Sibiu, where we walked through the two main piazzas in its historical center.

Photos from Timisoara’s historic district

We visited Timisoara for business recently. I took my camera along and we set a bit of time aside to walk through the historic district and take photographs.

It was a sunny, breezy Saturday afternoon and lots of people were out and about, enjoying the beautiful weather and the youthful, cheery atmosphere of the city.

There are also a couple of shots of the streets at night in here, taken from our hotel’s balcony.

Italian road trip – Day 4 – Ravenna, Rimini and Grottamare

Day 4 of our Italian road trip took us from Chioggia to Ravenna, Rimini and Grottamare, which is where we stopped for the night. Get a cup of coffee and get comfortable, there are 71 photos for you to enjoy here.

If you’d like to see the other posts from our trip, here are days 1, 2 and 3 (part 1 and part 2); and here’s the overview.

More photos from Rockville

As hinted in a previous post, here are more photos from Rockville, MD. Some were taken in the historic district and the rest in the city’s modern downtown.

Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

A few photos from Rockville, MD

I was going through my archives tonight and realized I hadn’t posted these photos from Rockville. They were taken in 2008. I think I have a few more from 2006 or 2007, I’ll dig those up at some point. Enjoy!

Historic sights from Tg. Mures

There are so many interesting historic buildings in Tg. Mures, Romania. When you’re downtown, pretty much everywhere you look you can find a building that has stood the test of time and presents various architectural details that catch the eye (or the lens). I think what sets this city’s architectural heritage apart from other cities I’ve visited is that its historic buildings are so varied in their architecture and decorations, unlike other towns where most of the architecture sticks to common themes. Complicated reliefs and daring color schemes adorn these buildings and most of them are remarkably well preserved over time.

Here’s a collection of photographs I think you’ll like. I took them in 2007 and 2009. I snuck in a couple of modern sights which sadly detract from the beauty of the city. Do what I do, try to ignore them…

Should you be interested in licensing any of these photos (or any of my other photos), you might want to read through my terms.

Washington DC at Christmas time

These are photos taken on an evening walk in DC, during Christmas time, back in 2006. They should bring back memories for some of you, and if they don’t, they’ll give you a good idea of what to expect if you visit our nation’s capital in December.

Scenes from Tulcea, night and dawn

We stayed in Tulcea this past spring, at a nice little place called Hotel Select, which happened to have a great view of the city. I set aside the travel fatigue, stayed up late and then woke up early to take photos. Here’s a selection for you.

On 15th St NW in DC

A few days back, you got to see what 17th St NW looks like. Now you’ll see 15th St NW, which passes the White House on the other side of the Ellipse. Among the photos, you’ll the US Department of Commerce, the Willard Washington Hotel, the Boy Scout Memorial, the Pershing Memorial, the Department of the Treasury and other interesting sights. Be sure to view the full gallery at the end of the post, which contains 30 photos. I only posted a select few below.

On Constitution Avenue in DC – Part 2

These are more photos taken on Constitution Ave in Washington, DC and continue the series started here. Enjoy!

North Bethesda and Rockville at night

Here are cityscapes of North Bethesda and Rockville at night. Most are taken from a vantage point in Grosvenor Park while some are taken from the walkway above the I-270. I do love it when cities and architects take the time to think about color casts and the impact they will have on the way their places are seen at night. The right lighting can make a place look magical at night. And let’s not forget about incidental light from cars and other road vehicles, which has its own amazing charm in long exposure photographs.
