Elaborate c19th lamp-post in Bucharest

Bellow is the image projected against the blue sky, in seven different processing sequences, of what is probably one of the most elaborate c19th (1890s, Little Paris style) lamp-post in Bucharest, which in its heydays functioned by burning gas. Actually there is a pair of them hosted in Domnita Balasa churchyard in the centre of the city. Each particular appearance reflects, in my opinion, the various moods of Bucharest’s “architectural soul”.

  1. am trimis comentariul inainte sa scriu ca urmaresc cu pasiune acest blog. Curind voi veni si intr-un tur prin Bucuresti cu Dvs, abia astept.

    1. Ma bucur ca iti plac aceste “tratamente”! Poza nu e din iPhone, a fost trecuta prin vreo trei programe de procesare, de la cel al camerei, la Adobe Photoshop si sfarsit cu Picassa. VM

    1. Thank you for the comment Helen! Those are paint colours in the spirit or La Belle Epoque or the Gilded Age flamboyance (the gold painting certainly suggests that).
