What this traveller saw….in Transylvania

Having a bit of a reminisce today, so here are some more monochrome images, loaded with memories…

Lonely walk to the church, Sighisoara

Lonely walk from the church, Viskri

A lonely life for the shepherd, near Miklosaure




  1. great photos, Sue. Looks like a wonderful place. Did you see Count Dracula, too?:))

  2. I was waiting for the angry crowd, pitchforks and flaming torches at the ready!
    Looks timeless over there, Sue. Nice images indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. These all seem a bit bleak in black and white.

  4. These are tremendous, Sue. Especially love the woman ‘in black’ on the cobbled byway, and the brooding drama of the shepherd against the sky.

  5. Very striking photos. I have been there too, and there was something very ancient and at places very wrong-feeling about some of it. I can see why there are stories, and I did not spend enough time to really get into the culture in that area beyond those feelings and witnessing a few odd crimes which I did not see elsewhere–this was back about 1992 or so. The odd little skulls that have been there forever were very unsettling in their way to me too, at the time.

      Hmm, seems you saw a different side to it than I did…certainly never saw any crimes or skulls….
      How long were you there?

      • Less than a week, and we rented an apartment. The skull motif was on a lot of religious buildings and was odd because it had what looked like teeth on the top, and we saw some young men that we took to be racists hassling an old woman, and someone stole a pocketbook right near us and raced at top speed down the steep stairs away. We were young martial artists and did what we could, but did not get too seriously involved with anyone.

        That sounds weird, disturbing…

      • Yup. Now you know what I mean!

  6. For me that would be alone-ness–rather than lonely.

  7. Nothing sinister about the lady on the path, it’s a great image.

  9. Oh the middle photo is so spooky. love them all 🙂
