Photographer's Note

I took this shot on the hidden streets of old Bucharest, behind the Metropolitan Hill (Hill of the Metropolitan Cathedral/Dealul Mitropoliei). There are many large sections of the old city scattered around, in many cases off main avenues, hidden behind impressive art-deco buildings or massive communist concrete blocks. Wandering around on the small steets I ended up in this remote corner where time seems to have been standing still for decades. However, it appears that the owner of this car has been taking care of his "beetle" and careful enough to register it and get a new licence plate. It was a quiet sunny evening and nobody around. There was the faint sound of children playing in a nearby alley.

The picture was taken with my digital camera and edited in Photoshop (resized, cropped, sepia tone, sharpened, frame, saved for web)
