Dark shadows in the night

This was taken in my house a few years ago. I was taking photos of the shadows made on the wall by the wooden curtain, and in the second photo I discovered a little surprise…

Night whispers

I used to walk along this street of London and all the times I could hear strange whispers, although I have never seen anybody around…just the wind blowing gently in the barren leaves…

The Cross of Mill Lake

Ok, this one has a longer history. If you take a walk across the shore of the Mill Lake in Bucharest, Romania (Crangasi Neighbourhood) you will eventually come across this extraordinary cross.

During the Comunist times, instead of this artificial lake there was a well known cemetery and a church in the middle of it. Then, the communist builders came and said, the cemetery must be destroyed and the bones of the deceased people must be moved, so that we make here a big lake.

The people protested but they had no choice. The priest in that church also protested and announced that  if the church and the cemetery are destroyed, he would hang himself. Nobody believed him. The next day after a series of harsh discussions, the builders came to see  if everything was ready for the lake construction to begin (people had already moved the bones of their dead ones)

They found the priest, dead, hung in his own church, with a note he had left, explaining his protest against the communist actions and the fact that, for the sin of having taken his life, he will respond only to God.

I think God forgave him…

Anyways, this cross is made out of the metal cross on the top of that church (melted and made larger) – in 1986.

Many people drowned in the Mill Lake – including my grandfather.

I live 10 mins away from here.

Forgotten Carousel

Day by day, summer or winter, I am passing by this  little carousel. Always empty and full of dust and leaves. And I always have the feeling that it is the gate to another world.
