skirt bike

Sunday, 21 October 2012
So, saturday was the first Skirt Bike Event  in Cluj. I was actually really looking forward to this because I'm a big fan of bikes and everything related to them. I will choose any time a bike over a bus or a car, but in my city the traffic is awful, so you have to be quite brave to ride the bike. The event was not actually what I had in mind though..I was expecting more girls wearing skirts and city bikes, but instead of that there were a lot of boys and girls wearing jeans, not skirts. Anyway, I enjoyed it as it was. I met an old friend there and Daria from Kittenhood. She and her friend Giani (first picture) were some of the loveliest girls there.

negreni fair

Monday, 15 October 2012
Friday I went to this autumn fair that takes places in a little village called Negreni. It was my third time going there and this year the fair got so big that I was overwhelmed by the number of people and stuff there. Actually I didn't had time to buy a lot of things because I was to busy taking pictures and just..look at people. And because I took pictures, some people would start talking to me. Many of them, just trying to sell me something but others would ask me questions.:) was actually nice to be able to get to know some of them a little bit.
Even though I forgot my film roll at home, and couldn't take analog pictures, these digital ones came out ok, i guess. I really liked that there were many dusty old mirrors in which I could take self-portraits.  In fact, there were very few things you couldn't find there..from chairs, to clothes and shoes, antiques and jewelry, books and music, you can buy almost anything... there was even an old chaise for sale.
I love these county fairs. I always find treasures and it's the perfect place for pictures :)

the dearest creature

Tuesday, 9 October 2012
I was always fascinated by deers. I remember I cried a lot when I was little and saw Bambi killed. There were a few times when one would jump in front of our car and one winter, I saw three running in the forest, a few feet away but they were so fast that I only caught a glimpse of them.

To be able to see them up close, touch them and feed them...well, that was something! For me at least, it was a childhood dream come true. I was able to take some pictures, but they were so scared of me that it took quite a while to lure them with food to get closer.  They are the most humble, shy and beautiful creatures!
