The Godfather project (part 2)

You come to me...
You come to me...

I'll make you an offer you can't refuse.

The Godfather, part I   


The Godfather project

Are you talking to me ?
Are you talking to me ?


Now you come to me, and you say: "Don Corleone, give me justice." But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather.

The Godfather, part I   


A better place

A better place

Life can be full of surprises...
And death can take you too soon...

Rest In Peace dear friend, Dan Valman !

As you probably noticed, today is 10/10/10 (October 10, 2010), so I wanted to make something a little special for this special day.

The photos below were made using the iGlowstick app from my iPhone. Enjoy !

The dark side - Part 2

This time I combined my photo skills with my wild imagination and the passion for video editing. You will immediately recognize my inspiration for this short clip, being one of the most popular intro themes of all times.

Watch it in HD and Fullscreen, or you will not see the stars !

PS: All the materials used in this video (text, photos etc.) are entirely my own work.
PS 2: As you noticed, I write in english because many of my readers are not from Romania.


The dark side

It's time for some dark side of the ...sky. I took these pictures about a month ago, but I forgot to upload them.

The first one is composed of multiple photos taken continuously, each with a 30 seconds exposure. You can see the movement of the Earth, and the stars apparently rotating around the North Star. In the second photo I used some Photoshop editing, to highlight Ursa Major.

Click the images for better detail.
Enjoy !

At the mountains

Last weekend I was on Transalpina road, a.k.a. DN 67C, in the Parang mountains. Of course I took a lot of pictures, but I will publish them gradually.

For now, a landscape of Parang mountains, composed from 9 images. Click the image for better detail (you will go to the flickr page).
Enjoy !

The Wild Valley

And here is the exact location where the pictures were taken

Deadly shadows

The video is filmed with my Canon 450D (with a special program), connected to my laptop. The spider in the video is not the one from the photo above. Watch it in HD. Enjoy !
