A week in Brasov, at the beginning of August, really got me out and about with the camera. It’s a very pretty city, especially around the old town and it’s a place I’ve visited many times. It is quite unique, with some buildings including the famous “Black Church’, dating back to the 1400’s. The colour of the buildings are in stark contrast to the capital, Bucharest. Which still suffers from the abundance of the old ‘communist blocks’, although that’s also changing, as many are being updated and repainted.
My preferred time of shooting in Brasov was either early morning, or the ‘golden hour’ when the bright summer sun wouldn’t be so harsh. The city was filled with many tourists and locals and nothing beats getting lots of walking exercise, great food and the added expectation of maybe getting a few nice shots.
