Description

:bulletred: Taken in Romania, Bucharest.

:bulletblue: Cheers to the hardest winter I've ever seen in my lifetime. Temperatures reaching all times low in Romania, lots of snow and a great discomfort for those that prefer heat. Buh bye winter, you just went wandering until next year.


:bulletblack: This photo's really about wandering souls, in the rain, in the blizzard, in the heat, doesn't matter. We're all trying to find a greater meaning in what we do. The great escape from the nothing around us.

:bulletred:I went out riding
Down that old eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
Looking for my own name

I went with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you.

U2 and Johnny Cash - The Wanderer (Zooropa, 1993)

Critique by SmokeStories Feb 21, 2010, 10:26:51 AM
Although this photo isn't being made remarqued by originality, it is a very nice photo indeed, because it captures the nature as it is. I really like the composition, the person who's struggling to go through the blizzard was just the right capture at the right moment. However, the trash bin is a bit eye-distracting, but then again, that didn't depend on the photographer. I like the fact that it's not centered, although others would say it lacks symmetry. I think it's fine as it is, and it's a great photo to capture the "rage" of nature and to give that special feeling of a frozen winter.
What do you think?

Wow. When I saw this, it brought back some great memories. I was walking from GameStop to my dorm in a blizzard like this, and I saw almost this exact scene (there were a few cops around pulling people over who were driving. I could barely see the lights). I thought it was one of the most beautiful scenes I'd ever seen, and this matches it. Thank you for putting this up.

Love it, a very atmospheric photo, very raw in nature, its bleakness, but also its showing of hope by the person not allowing the storm to put them off ..... :)
