Going back through old Lightroom catalogs is never useless.

Romania, a Two-Years Journey

Our stay in Romania is coming to an end. I just gave my access badge back today and everything else is being taken care of. Two more weeks, that’s what’s left. So, because I always loved trains and especially Romanian ones, I’ll celebrate the Romanian “stop” with some on-the-train shots.

The Village Museum – Folklore part 2

Here’s the last post on the Village Museum visit on Dragobete, the Romanian Valentine’s Day. The celebrations ended with a beautiful traditional songs and dances concert held by artists from different regions of the country. Two of them were from Oltenia, where I grew up, which brought back nice memories. Notice the traditional costumes once again, carefully handmade (usually), each of them with regional particularities that I am, unfortunately, not able to discern and/or explain. Enjoy!

This concludes the Village Museum on Dragobete photography set. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, it was an extremely fun day and I’m looking forward to going back to the Museum for their next organized activities (cooking and photography)!

The Village Museum – WWI Troop Reenactment

This was a nice thing to do, even though I didn’t quite get the link between this and Dragobete. We had a WWI troop walking around the village, posing for visitors and singing songs, songs that they apparently learnt from their grandparents. Every detail seemed spot on, even though I admit I’m no master of WWI uniforms and accessories. Still, nicely played.

The last part of the Museum’s set will be a second traditional performance by a few different musicians. Bye for now 🙂

The Village Museum – Cooking Contest

This tiny cooking contest was fun, it was just about making forms out of dough, but everyone enjoyed it, and I even got to go home with  food and a jar of jam!
