    A Few Pictures From Romania--A Great Place To Visit!

    Some of you know I just returned from a 2 week photography trip vacation from Romania, and have asked to see a few photos. It was a great trip, thoroughly enjoyed it, and hope you enjoy this quick arm chair photo tour of the countryside of Romania.

    Oh my....your pictures capture what I have in my head what Romania would look like! We have young friends that moved here and now live in a huge city...I can't imagine the difference for them! Beautiful! Thank you for posting!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a marvelous group of photos! You must have had a wonderful time. You have such a perfect eye for pictures. I especially love the one of the woman leaning out of the green window frame. Just gorgeous! And that young lady's vest! Wow!
    Thanks for sharing, it was amazing! Pat

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures. You certainly are a great photographer! Love the tree with the church in the background, and the faces of the people are priceless! Bless you!

    Yes most of these were taken in Transylvania--we started up north and worked our way south through the Carpathain Mountains to Bucharest.

    My husbands maternal grandparents were from Transylvania. That was the name of their mountain cabin in the Snowy Range Mountains of Wyoming. I have seen pictures of the church in which they were married.

    Just an idea, i dont have a clue where in Illinois you live but get south of I-80 and head to the rural areas of Illinois. Lots of beautiful churches, town squares, 19th century homes, etc. Just need to explore beyond the interstate. Pls do not take offense ....those of us who live "suburban" get accustomed to the tear down and build phenom. I am guilty of it . There are lots af amazing small town sights to see, farms, etc. We have a beautiful countryside.

    After a trip to France in 2000 i no longer get to excited about "some" tear downs. Europe has some really old structures that are built to last and have. ,talk about narrow side streets. Loved it.

    The pictures are fabulous. I particularly enjoyed the pictures of the older faces. So much living in those wrinkles!

    Ancient cities, with architecture now lost to the modern world, beauty that survives in the buildings and in the people. The great sense of dignity and serenity that shows in their faces. Thank you for sharing with us.
