The Turning Point

I once got an hourglass from my girlfriend on one of those commemorative dates. The hourglass was small, simple, fragile, but beautiful.At the time I was surprised to be gifted a decorative item, I didn’t really expect it, but I found it interesting and I liked it. I put it in my bookshelf to beautify and compose that scenery of words. It stayed there always reminding me that the time was passing and I was letting the books accumulate dust, lol.But on a certain day I was bored at home... continue reading

Stock Photos Tell The Story & Win Accounts

Doing Corporate and Entrepreneurial training as a private consultant is a challenging an lonely road. Basically, I compete with the "big boys" and have to find ways to differentiate myself. I have to find a path that will land me at the same destination, following the well trodden path yet, venturing into the unknown. How do you find a new path along a tried and tested journey? What makes you stand out when you're the small fry in the marketplace? When do you make... continue reading

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

My Photography Story

I have owned a camera since my teenage years. I got my first part-time job at 13 years old and took my first paycheck to a pawn shop and bought a Canon AE-1 (this was 33 years ago). Since then, I have had a camera in my hands. I took it to school, concerts, everywhere I went. Sadly, I don't have any of those photos any more.As an adult, I dabbled in photography. Travel and vacation photos, food, flowers, etc... All in 35mm and had a hard drive filled with scans of the negatives. That died too.... continue reading

The story behind my latest sell

Almost exactly 3 years after I've taken this photo, someone bought it: I remember the day well, I was with my friends, juts walking, talking, no shopping, no destiny, no hurry. Just catching up, enjoying the unique view, the perfect weather. I still can feel the breeze on my skin. The reconstruction works on the Redoute (Pesti Vigadó) just finished, and at the opposite site of the Danube there she was, that beautiful Castle of Buda, with those perfect clouds. Of course I had to take a few... continue reading

The area is also known as the Axarquia and is a very beautiful part of Spain, having lots of small white painted villages inland, miles of sunny coastline and even... continue reading
