Снимки от едно от най-интересните места за снимане в България… една махала близо до Гоце Делчев. Тук винги нещо се случва.
Damn, two years have passed since last time. Same people, same place, but new moments to capture and share. All photos taken with my beloved white 70-200L F2.8 (non IS) and processed in Lightroom 1.3. If you want to send an image to a friend, right-click on the image in the gallery to get to the source image. Enjoy!
Сватбите на Деян и Катя, Влади и Яна. Винаги се намира по някой забавен момент за увековечаване.
Кукери от Банско шестват по софийските улици в знак на добра воля или по-скоро поради липсата на какъвто и да било сняг в родния им… хммм курорт ?!
Ритмичния звън на чанове ме упоява дори в центъра на София. Рекордно топлата зима прави живота тежък на тези, които трябва да подскачат с козяци на 20C жега.
„In Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, Lucy (called Lucia) is venerated on December 13 in a ceremony where the eldest girl in a family, portraying Lucia, walks, with a crown of candles, ahead of a procession of other women holding a candle each. The candles symbolize the fire that refused to take her life. The women sing a Lucia song while entering the room, to the melody of the traditional Neapolitan song Santa Lucia, still well-known through the recording by Enrico Caruso but, whereas the Italian lyrics describe the beautiful view from the harbour area Santa Lucia in Naples, the various Scandinavian lyrics are fashioned for the occasion, describing the light with which Lucia overcomes the darkness. Each Scandinavian country has their own lyrics in their native tongues although commonly it is the melody of Neapolitan which is used. After finishing this song, the procession usually continue by singing Christmas carols or more songs about Lucia.“ – Wikipedia
Ribnovo is a large village (by Bulgarian standards) on the end of a road in the western Rhodope mountains, some 30 kilometers from Gotse Delchev. This village is renouned for its preserved traditions and colorful dress codes. In this gallery there also are some shots of gypsy kids in another village near Gotse Delchev.
Several shots taken of the event. Some men participate to get an excuse for being drunk, others to get an excuse for dressing like women, third and fourth for god-knows-what. Its fun to look for things you cannot notice immediately. See for yourself!
