    Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific

    Bora Bora...a name which evokes a place that is already close to being considered as "paradise". I actually had the chance to go there for a week; sailing in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons, enjoying the marvelous views, and of course, taking lots of pictures.

    Magic Doubtful Sound: Is this Norway or New Zealand?

    Exploring the beauty of a Fjord...I thought that this was only possible in Norway but in fact, you can explore the surprising Fjordland in southwestern New Zealand! We went to the Doubtful Sound and despite it's name, there's no doubt that it's one of the most amazing places I've ever seen.

    Feeding Pigeons in Chelsea

    Making double exposures in Chelsea. I don't like pigeons myself. Well, not unless they are Chelsea pigeons. In Chelsea, everything is different, kind of like having a Midas touch.

    Moeraki Boulders: Are These Alien Eggs?

    The Moeraki Boulders are one of the strangest geological stone formations I ever saw. It looks almost like some aliens landed on a beach and left behind some of their eggs to prepare for a future invasion of the earth. Is this the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"???

    Road 99: the Southern Scenic Road of New Zealand

    The Southern Scenic Road or Road 99 is the southernmost road you can take in New Zealand. The landscapes are absolutely stunning and you'll reach the most southern point of this country. In front of you is nothing more than the wide sea and far, far away is the south pole.

    Mt. Eden Park, Auckland

    Mt. Eden Park in Auckland is made from an impressive former volcano crater and offers a great view over the whole area. It's perfectly safe to visit as it's already a dormant volcano - you can either enjoy a nice walk uphill or take a car if you're being lazy but once you get to the top, you'll quickly realize that all the effort is well worth it.

    The Greymouth area on the west coast of New Zealand doesn't have a lot to offer but there's one spot that's worth a visit. It's called Shantytown, and is the reconstitution of a XIX century goldmining village. Come and have a little travel back in time!

    City of Arts and Sciences by Night

    When it comes to capturing the beauty of the City of Arts and Sciences at night, all you need is your LCA and a good supply of film! While this is a popular tourist attraction, it's much advisable to pay it a visit at night when you can finally have it all to yourself.

    Leaving New Zealand's south island, we went to Wellington by ferry. We thought at the beginning that this trip was going to be only for some hours on a boat to reach the north island, but in fact it was a beautiful cruise through the Queen Charlotte Sound and the Cook Strait!

    “Dwarf Land” is one of my favorite places in Constanta as it reminds me of my childhood. It is the biggest kids’ playground in town and is part of Tăbăcărie Park. It has a very lively atmosphere and is the perfect place to take some fun photos.
