Brasov, a stylized view

I have this memory: being in a train that stops in the railway station in Brasov, I open the window (I think it was early morning), I smell the fresh air and I decide this is the city where I want to live my next four years (no exaggeration this was the entire decision process). This was me, back in 1998, choosing the city where I’ll do my university studies.

There is something about this city I always loved and makes me feel like home when I’m here. It may be that this is where my parents met and decided to get married?

Brasov is one of the main three medieval towns in Romania (the other two being Sibiu and Sighisoara) and is located right in the centre of the country, surrounded by Southern Carpathians. Brasov County is also home to two of my favorite ski resorts in Romania, Predeal and Poiana Brasov. I added some Wikipedia links for more details. Brasov also hosts Biserica Neagra (The Black Church), a well known Gothic site dating from 1477 (images 2 & 4).

Although I initially processed these images more realistically, I felt the need to review that and give it a more stylized view. This creamy texture is closer to how Brasov feels to me. Most of the images are taken with my Fuji X-T1 and 56mm lens.

P.S. In case you wonder what “STRADA SFORII” is (images 6, 7, 8, 9), it is one of the narrowest streets in Europe.
