Photographer's Note

Just returned from interesting days in Romania together with really motivated and very friendly TE photographers and some spouses all gathered last weekend for a TE meeting organized by Isabela and Teodora, supported by Annelise.

While the group finished our last dinner indoors I took the opportunity to take a little closer look at the reflections in the water fountain placed directly at the pavement by the large square in Sibiu..
A fine opportunity for reflections hehe...

In the workshop an indoor portrait of our TE hostess Isabela - a bit tired after 2 very busy days..

Sibiu - The large square
The Large Square is the historic center of Sibiu, first time mentioned in 1411 as corn market. The public executions and public meetings used to be held here. In 1538 documents mention here a fountain, and in the 1550 the infamy pillar is erected, to be removed only in 1783. In 1703 the county leader Johann Sachs von Harteneck is beheaded in this square. Between 1724 and 1757 a 'cage for crazy people' was put in the middle, where they were barred, during the day, those who troubled the town during the night.
