Skating rink

I don't skate, but I usually go to the rink just to take my wife and this time I took some shots.

Go west

Ploiesti city, downtown, February 2009


2 months ago, on the way back from Vienna we stopped for breakfast close to Sibiu city. Close to this restaurant there was a small kiosk selling garden dwarfs. Here they are.

The Latte & The Undercover Cappucino

While looking for some clothes in the "Old Mall", we stopped by for a coffee. I ordered a Cafe Latte and my wife asked for a Cappuccino which was also described in the menu as a special type of decaf Espresso. The waitress said that they didn't have the decaf espresso so my wife said she would go for the normal one.
The big surprise was that she actually brought an espresso having nothing to do with a Cappuccino as in the menu description.
I ended up giving my nice & tasty Latte to my wife as she hates strong coffee.

Beggar Kid

This kid was begging for money downtown. He is the type of beggar that asks you 10 times to give him some change. He's not taking a "No" so easy. Maybe that's why I don't give money to those that ask it in such an annoying way. Anyway, this kid was playing in the park when nobody around. I had already turned him down. When I shot this photo he had just seen two ladies coming so he interrupted his game not to miss them.

Two commercial banners downtown placed on the opposite sides of an electronics store. It's been a while since they look like this but it seems that it doesn't bother anyone. Anyway, they don't have too many customers.

update: I shot this photo for a contest organized by Photomagazine with the theme: "Partners". I didn't win the contest but this picture got 26 points and was published in the magazine in the series containing some of the pictures that were in this contest.

The strange magnet puppet on my fridge is quite freaky for me. Or maybe is because I'm not a big clowns fan and this one is looking a little bit like. Or maybe is more like a mask.
