Random Photos, Random Mistakes
It's been some time since my last random photo post, so today I'd like to invite you to see a mix of photos, most likely with little to no connection between them, unless you count my intention to practice different techniques and angles.
I'm always trying to find interesting subjects. Sometimes I succeed, other times I fail, but at the end of the day, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so who knows.
Here for example I was standing in front of this hemisphere and noticed the tower of the church, behind it, acting as if it was on the top of the hemisphere. It's not quite aligned, because my focus was the pine. So the idea was to first focus on the hemisphere and the church tower, after which the second shot should have been with the focus on the pine.
And here's the second shot. I don't know which is better, maybe both are bad. I'll let you decide.
I liked this statue, but made a huge mistake that I could see only when I downloaded the photos. While I was focusing on taking a photo frontwise, I didn't notice the wall on the right, or didn't pay attention to it. Would have been better from another angle, to have a clean background, but what's done is done. Maybe next time.
This is a but better, but maybe I should have taken a few more shots from different angles. Making notes with what I should do next time :) Not a bad idea as that's the only way to avoid mistakes.
Shooting through metal rings or holes is becoming an obsession for me, but it's not so easy. Here these rings were part of the table's leg that was upside down. I tried to find a god angle, but I'm not sure I did a good job.
Cropping the photo gives you a different view. Cutting out the noise, the eye can focus on the tower. This one is definitely better in my opinion.
A pretty dramatic photo of the church. The weather was good for me, but it was overcast and it shows.
This is the third statue in this post and reminds me of how rarely I post statues. I love statues with green patina, but haven't seen many in my country. You mostly see those in big European cities, like Vienna, Hamburg, Budapest and so on. It would be nice to create a series of statue posts, but the project has to wait for now. Till then, here it is, the statue of János Hunyadi, who had a significant contribution to Transylvania's history and the church I posted earlier.
This is one of my favorite photos for several reasons. I made it black and white to eliminate distractions. The brick wall with arcades itself is a beauty in my eyes, the rest is just bonus. So these books are part of a wider project that you can find in most of the major cities. The idea is to borrow a book, read it and then take it back.
When I first posted about it, I got comments like these will be stolen in one day. That was a couple of years ago. So here we are, the books have not been stolen, on the contrary, there are more and more each time I am passing by. Unfortunately there are plenty on the ground as well and winter is coming, but still, the books are there.
Looking at these photos, I'm noticing the clouds and it makes me smile. Most people would say the weather was bad, but not in my eyes. It wasn't raining, it was a bit chilly but other than that, it was splendid for walking.
This is a cool stage, that serves for different events, demonstrations but also for yoga during summer, if you like. It's free to use, no strings attached.
Looking at this photo, kinda reminds me of the Louvre. Old and new brought together. The hemisphere is made of glass, just as the entrance to the Louvre.
How's this for old and new? I's say it's perfect. I don't know if the architects of the glass conference room have placed the hemisphere where it is, intentionally, or not, but from where i was standing, I'd say it's the perfect location.
So this was my photo parade for today. I can't finish my post without tagging my dear friend @dimascastillo90 😂. Let's see what you say about these photos. Maybe we can start another trend. Would be great.
