Summer in Scotland - part II

(Continued fromhttps://www.dreamstime.com/blog/summer-scotland-part-i-48775)Whisky distilleriesThe main source of income for Scotland is whisky which is exported to almost every corner of the world. Many of the distilleries are open for visitors so make sure to visit (at least!) one when you are in Scotland. Hint: often the guided tours end with a free sample...EdinburghEdinburgh is a vibrant city with many attractions. Edinburgh Castle is of course the main attractionbut... continue reading

Summer in Scotland - part I

Summer in Scotland - well, it sounds a bit contradictory… Scotland is probably not the first destination you will think of when you plan your summer vacation. Most people will associate summer with beaches, lots of sun, and a nice warm climate. These are, without offending anyone, not characteristics of Scotland! However, there are many other reasons for paying Scotland a visit and judged on the crowds at some of the attractions, not all people go to the beaches for their summer vacation.Beautiful... continue reading

Romanian comfort food (part II, the dishes)

Romanian food (like any other cuisine) was influenced in its development by its neighbors and any country that had anything to do with it at any time. Turkish, Greek, Russian, Bulgarian, German and Hungarian cuisines helped Romanian cuisine grow a larger list of dishes. Several ingredients, spices and recipes were introduced during our long history and adapted to our culture and needs.However, I will not write about gastronomy history here because I am not that gifted. I will write about... continue reading

Russia for stock photographers - part two

A few weeks ago, I published part 1 of my trip to Russia.Today, I'd like to share with you, the rest of my trip to Ufa, the capitol of Bashkiria, a semi-autonomous republic about 1000 miles east of Moscow on the western slopes of the Ural, the area around it.      To a foreigner, Ufa is not a particular tourist attraction.    It's an industrial 2,000,000 million inhabitants city, that seem to have frozen in time some 30 years ago. Since there aren't any tourists,... continue reading

Romanian comfort food (part I - the ingredients)

If I should make a count about Romanians' favorite ingredients or foods I would get to a very simple conclusion: meat (a lot of it, mostly pork), mamaliga (polenta), telemea (a Romanian cheese, a bit similar to feta, but better in taste - sorry Greeks, but it's true), tomatoes, fresh onion and garlic.You might think it's simple, but we, Romanians, are taking our tomatoes very seriously. Almost everybody with a garden or even a small corner in a balcony or kitchen or yard, will plant... continue reading

Russia for Stock Photographers -Part One

I just returned from two weeks in Russia. It was a family trip to Moscow, St. Petersburg and Ufa, near the Ural Mountain Ridge.Russia is heaven for stock photographers. Friendly people, a wealth of World Heritage sites. Rich history with many relics and past times buildings, and a sense of traveling back in time, to 40-50 years ago.    It had been very very interesting and apparently quite fruitful as almost 60 images from the 800 I shot had turned into stock photos accepted by DT.The... continue reading

Photos that stand out. Part 3

Well, it's about time that I showed you another five photos that I think stand out from the crowd.This group differs from the previous ones just a little, as it has a black and white photo included. Black and white tends to get a little overlooked these days but can be very striking when done well.One other thing about these photos is that they don't really need any further explanation, they speak for themselves. Of course, this is just my opinion and we all have different tastes and perceptions.... continue reading
