It's All There in Black and White

Advertising screams,‘We want color photos!’ and galleries yell back, ‘Only black & white matters.’ That was the past.Yes, it’s certain that color images dominate in print and web advertising and that classic photography found in galleries is more closely associated with black and white images but both genres can be found in all places.The use of B&W photography in advertising seems to ebb and flow. There was a big resurgent of its use in the 1990s and lately I’ve been hearing that... 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.

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.

Trekking story

In the previous blog I wrote about things that make us recharge our batteries. So, here is a short story about a trekking escape that I have done recently.The most convenient (time and distance) trails are in the Bucegi Mountains, which are part of the Romanian Carpathians.  Whether by car or train, we can reach the bottom of the route in two and a half hours. This is a pretty fast way to escape to nature, leaving behind the city tumult.  So, there I was, with my friends, in Busteni... continue reading

We Are Stars

Just like the nature; universe inspires, influences and amazes me since I was a little kid. Lately the only thing makes me sad is that it seems not possible to see other worlds, great civilizations in distant planets with our own two eyes. Universe is expanding and galaxies having even more distance each other - and even in this situation, there are billions and billions galaxies out there with mind blowing amount of possibility on the richness of life.All I can do as a creative person is trying... continue reading
