This is a small street that runs into the Trivale Park.
The building of this park begun in 1900 when the administrative authorities together with the residents tried to transform a part of Trivale Forest into a park for the city, and because it was very close to the town centre (now, after the urbanisation, it’s a 10 minutes walking distance from the city hall). For this aim, the city hall asked the Austrian noble Thedeus Graf Lubenschi for buying trees and other plants for the park. From a document of 16 March 1902 we can see that they bought: 25 pieces of pine tree, 1000 pieces of Australian pine, 100 pieces of white pine, 25 pieces of Cembra pine, 100 pieces of spruce, 20 pieces of wild olive tree and 100 pieces of sycamore. Also, the city hall has spent an important sum of money for expropriations in order to enlarge the surface of the park.
In 1903, the architect E. Redont made a facelift plan for the park and ordered more trees from Austria and France.
Ten years later, another renewal was made by another architect from Bucharest, Pinard.
Today is the largest natural park of the city with minimal artificial facilities and a small old church in the middle.

tonalità scura come scelta compositiva con pochi colori ,ma sufficienti a dare risalto ai particolari,

You don't show us much of the buildings, but the red and white pattern in the foreground and the yellow lower part of the nearest wall, and the generally "dirty" colours are the essentials of this composition anyway. I like the narrow approach. It makes me feel like I'm peeping from out of o half closed door.

As I told you many times, I love the colors you usually get and the frames you put on your shots. Thanks Daniel!
Enjoy the WE!

I actually like this photo without the bright sky, the ground patterns and historic buildings are great just by themselves.
has a real rustic and natural appeal.

I like the bookmark style framing and the strongly saturated colours, especially the graphics in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
