For you my dear friend Henryk( Henryk_Bilor)....
....and because you don`t like photos of people (portraits),I post today this picture dedicate to you!!
A characteristic constructive element of the traditional Romanian house is the porch, a supplementary space outside the plan proper of the house but under its roof. The porch can be constructed only in front of the house or be placed on 2 -3 or on its four sides. There are three reasons that explain this supplementary space: 1. Protects the walls of the house from the immediate contact with the humidity caused by precipitations, which are richer in the hill and mountain areas; 2. Increases the inhabiting space as during summer many of the house-hold activities can take place there: the weaving loom can be placed there or it might just as well serve for sleeping place during the quiet and hot summer nights; 3. It represents a buffer space between the family and the natural environments, making the passing from one reality to the other. We have to admit that the Romanian villages co-exist in the ambient environment as a consequence of an ancestral fraternity: man uses nature without exploiting it thoughtlessly and the nature recompenses man by protecting him.
The porch may be fully open, the roof being sustained by pillars, or it can be half-closed. In this case the wooden pieces from between the pillars are shaped by fretwork or sculpture. In all the case though, the decorative elements of the porch and of the front side from under the eaves, together with the volumetric disposition of the house indicate the special plasticity of the Romanian traditional architecture.

Hurraa!! A gift for me. I`m in heaven :). You said that I don`t like much the photos of poeple (although I take such photos more lately), but this house has a face on itself. I see eyes, nose and wide open mouth :).
Great capture and excellent idea.
Thank you very much for this image.

Isabela, I like your architecutral shots, they capture the essence of the building in its purest forms. The facade is the facade. Very straight forward. I like that!

I agree with Enrique and I must say that I really enjoy your 'houses' photos; you always seem to get the right POV for these shots. (Anyway, I like your portraits, too ;)! ).
Loght, colors, DOF and sharpness are very good.
All the best to you dear friend and have a great weekend!
