Bucharest by night...

 Fire Watch Tower 1890

Hello from Bucharest. Back in my hometown. I always thought it's difficult to shoot places where you live and that's mainly because of the familiarity that develops. Everything becomes normal, usual and there's not much to excite the artistic eye. But... since I no longer live here, I feel like a visitor and there are some creative juices flowing.
Here is a short collage with shots taken at the blue hour and past that. The concept behind the shots is: What can I show to someone that has not been here?
I must say I'm very excited about the 18-200VR Nikkor which opened up a world of possibilities. Excellent for street photography!
