Photographer's Note

December 22nd is an important date to remember for the Romanians, as exactly 18 years ago the news that dictator Ceausescu was arrested bring joy and relief in everybody's heart. Well, it is actually debated on whether it really was a revolution or not, but I'm not qualified to give a competent opinion. Anyways, December 22nd bring back many memories about courage and fear, armoured carriers in the center of main cities, guns and soldiers everywhere, and the loss of a friend in conditions still not completely clarified.

The image above is the Memorial dedicated to the heroes of the Revolution, people who lost their lives in the fight against the dictator and his troops. The Memorial is in downtown Galati, erected in front of the former headquarters of the County's Council, which was the place where most events took place during those historic days. I found this image most interesting, but in the workshop you'll find two wider views showing how the memorial is positioned and how it looks during daytime. Hope you'll find this interesting.
