One/24

Another image from my travels  in rural Romania before the country entered the EU… a solitary soul and his horse on a beautiful summer afternoon. Horses and carts were a very common sight then, and roads were usually in very poor repair….sometimes just dirt tracks.

This photo was taken through the windscreen of a car, hence a number of smudgy bits, and also it was taken with a very basic point and shoot digital camera… I’m amazed the image came out as well as it has!

    Great photo of a by gone time – I wonder if such sights can still be seen there.

    • Oh, I think they still could in more remote rural areas. We went when we did because we were told change would come, but I doubt the whole country is completely thrust into the 21st century…..I must ask fellow bloggers Ileana Parteni or Paul Militaru…..

        Interesting – I don’t imagine I’ll ever get there now but it’s good to know such places still exist.

  2. It came out very well…great capture on the solitary theme Sue, as always…

    This is beautiful, Sue. Life looks to be slower but not any easier than our hectic life. The main thing in poor rural areas is the lack of creature comforts. And I say this as we are camping. 😀

  4. It’s an awesome image. It’s funny how sometimes these off-the-cuff shots turn out so well. Have you been back to Romania since they joined the EU? I was thinking about visiting, but my German friend (a world traveler in her own right) frowned and recommended other options. Hmmm.

    • I went before and immediately after. And I hope to go again sometime, just for a short break…. There are some outstanding landscapes, fascinating towns, interesting architecture and then the painted monasteries of Bucovina, the fortified churches in Transylvania and the Wooden Churches of Maramures….
