Photographer's Note

The man is reading the newspaper. In background we have the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral.
I put in workshop another color version of this Cathedral.
Piata Unirii, a huge grand square surrounded by gems of architectural design. Buildings painted blue, green, gold, and dark red are trimmed with white & beige stripes, window frames and ornamentation. They include, the Catholic Cathedral (1748), which holds services in German; the smaller Serbian Orthodox Cathedral (1734); and the
Museum of Fine Arts. In the piata’s center are fountains amid grassy plots and stone benches.
In the middle of Unirii Square, Timisoara, Romania, conceived in baroque style, rich in figurative elements and remarkable plastic features, the monument was sculpted in Vienna between 1739 and 1740. The statue of the Holy Trinity represents the Virgin Mary, St. John of Nepomuk, the patron saint of Catholics in Banat, Saint Sebastian with arrows in his chest and St. Rochus with a wound in his leg. The foundation of the statue was laid on November 21 1740. On the pedestal of the Monument, aspects of the plague are carved.
TIMISOARA is the most western like Romanian city, both in democratic traditions as well as in outlook. Within 40 miles from Hungary and Serbia alike, this city prides itself with its elegant baroque squares, churches of many faiths, new German and French libraries and a pedestrian only, downtown. Timisoara is an excellent place to wind down. You'll find a mind-boggling selection of beer patios, cafes, restaurants, and gift shops along "16th December 1898" boulevard.

I hope you like it.
