This was funny. I was at work minding my own business, swamped as always, deadlines poring on me like no tomorrow, and i thought i'd just login, see what's up. The first message i saw in my inbox said something along these lines "i'm glad to see more and more romanians are receiving dd's." I was like, what's this idiot talking about? I didn't realize i had gotten a dd, 'till much later today.
So: Thank you !Lumysaara
for suggesting it, and `l8
for featuring it, you guys made my day busy, thanks a lot
So, about the picture itself (
It's made out of about 20 horizontal shots, starting from the sky and moving towards ma feet. I shot this with my piece of crap 50mm 1.8 because my pretty tokina 12mm decided it was time to break down
Now enough about the technical notes. The story:
I was in Brasov in october, when the uni year started. I took the camera along with me, just in case...I had about 30 min between 2 meetings i had arranged, so i decided to go for a walk. I went near the mountain foot (or is it skirt?) because i knew the staircase and the alleys. Just standing there on those stairs made me forget about the time, at least just for a little while. It's all because i'm a sucker for autumn. And corny movies... For christ sake, i cried at Ps. I love you. I must be the only person who did
So anyway, i was standing there, trying to capture something, hating my 50mm, wanting to smash it. I thought i would try a panorama then. But what's the use of a panorama if i couldn't catch the high trees, the stairs and so on. Oh! i know! Let's take a vertical panorama, ftw!
And that's the story.
