The main subject, right? Find here a selection of my favorite pieces of urban photography… but also the story behind it!

Five black knights

Five black knights

I crossed this group of black dressed people next to Piata Unirii in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Just after, having the sidewalk free, they spread in line, and walked like if they were in a movie. I immediately thought of the Nazguls, the infamous black knights (well… kings actually… nevermind) from The Lord of the Rings 😀

This photo has been processed with one of my favorite softwares ever, Google’s Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro, with of course my standard Lightroom workflow.

The book shop, the cross and the umbrella

The book shop, the cross and the umbrellaA woman with a round umbrella in front of a book shop in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

I directly felt that I must take that shot. The strict, straight lines of the windows, of the shelves, of the books, contrast with the woman’s round umbrella and the light bulb. I did a the old black & white post processing with Alien Skin Exposure 7, which is a fantastic tool for film-like processing.

In her glasses

She was sitting on a bench, reading an economy book, yes, university has begun :) Then I see her glasses and observe that Cluj-Napoca’s St Michael cathedral is reflecting in it. I got my shot of the day :) I’m quite happy of the resolution of the Canon 6D with the 24-70 lens, this picture being a 100% crop of the original file.

Old man texting

An old man texting.

An old man texting… whomever it could be. Much people said it’s a shame we don’t see his feet. In the contrary, with his trousers high on the waist, he looks like a trunk, as if this man was an old tree in the middle of the fair. The time it took for him to write his message reminds me of that, too 🙂
