Romania through the eyes of an Australian photographer

Romanian landscapeFor those passionate about photography, Romania offers a wide variety of shooting opportunities.  Some have been explored by Mitchell Karnashkevich, an Australian (judging from the phone number) travel photographer, who shares some of his impressions on his blog:

“I would have liked my trip to Maramures to have felt like a trip into a different world, into the past. It wasn’t quite like that, but as I drove my car through the mountains to the Hungarian border, passing old cattle herders in traditional hats, women collecting hay in their unique attires, all while being surrounded by some of the more dramatic scenery one is likely to encounter, I realized – Maramures is still special. It’s not what I wanted it to be, but that doesn’t make it any less special in relation to the rest of the world.”

You can read the full entry about Maramures here. Might want to check out his previous two articles too, the one on Holbav, a forgotten Transylvanian village, here, and some introductory impressions here.
