Photographer's Note

A view straight down from the top of the Gothic tower at Sighisoara, doing the tourist thing.

Interesting that even when it's just we tourists, not everyone sees things the same way. Here, everyone has a focus of their own.

By the way, to give some context to the title (and the guy's shirt): The spot they are standing is directly in front of home where Vlad Tepes was born. Vlad Tepes' father was known as Dracul, or Dragon. Therefore Vlad was known as Dracula, "Son of the Dragon". Real man and fictional character's stories nothing alike, but he did seem to inspire the author Bram Stoker to write the novel.

In the classic original movie, the character was played by Bela Lugosi.
