stand still/run

Constanta, Romania. Winter day. And a photo that reminds me of old communist postcards from the '50s (got a bunch of them at home).
This is a city (and most of the Romanian cities are so) where time - like these birds - plays a less understandable game, between running too fast and standing still.

  2. Nicely caught - a fine counterpoint.

  3. Winterurlaub am Schwarzen Meer - das ist sicher interessant. Und der Blick in die Vergangenheit ebenso.
    Übrigens: dein neues Outfit als "Lara Neusiedler" gefällt!!

    Liebe Grüsse

  4. The flapping wing adds such energy to you image. The typeface is well chosen to great effect.

  5. Great shot...yes it does look vintage and it's hard to tell if the birds are part of the sign of just paying it a visit. My sister-in-law comes from Costanta!

  6. Great shot. It is old communism, but could very well be old Las Vegas, and the Cathedral of Capitalism too.

  7. Lara: Enjoy the age show with the lack of color.

  9. I like the symmetry of the two birds and your timing on the rightmost bird. Nice shot.
