The Baroque PalaceMarch 7th, 2013

As I mentioned in my previous post I am currently in Romania enjoying a short break and visiting some places I haven’t seen in a long time. One of these places is Timisoara, a city in the West part of the country which has been one of my favourite spots for a long time.

I had a chance to walk around the city for a while and take a few photographs, particularly in the newly restored Unirii Square. The square is surrounded by a couple of beautiful buildings and one of these buildings is the Baroque Palace which houses the Art Museum. As you can probably guess from looking at the image, I took this with my 24mm tilt-shift and although I have a version of this without the person in the right corner, I really felt this was a better version as it ads a bit of scale to the building.

On a completely different note, I just wanted to remind you about my upcoming workshop in August in Madagascar, which now has 5 people signed up already which means it’s confirmed. There are still a few places left and if you’re interested you can read more about it here.
