Photographer's Note

An Alfred Hitchcock moment in Transylvania near the Sighisoara Cemetery. 'The Birds' was one of his most well known films. Sighisoara is famous (or infamous) as the birthplace in 1431 of Vlad Peles, or Vlad Dracul, better known as Dracula. From Wikipedia: "Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (1431–1476/77), was a member of the House of Drăculești, a branch of the House of Basarab, also known, using his patronymic, as (Vlad) Drăculea or (Vlad) Dracula. He was posthumously dubbed Vlad the Impaler (Romanian: Vlad Țepeș, pronounced [ˈvlad ˈt͡sepeʃ]), and was a three-time Voivode of Wallachia, ruling mainly from 1456 to 1462, the period of the incipient Ottoman conquest of the Balkans." Mures county is in the heart of the region better known as Transylvania.
