Photographer's Note

I visited the old city of Alba-Iulia on Romanias` national day. There I found some guys guarding the 18th century fort that was built by the Austrians. They were dressed in this 18th century hapsburgic uniform. I really liked this guy, he looks so proud in that uniform.
The main gate was guarded by two "austrian soldiers". It was a very interesting image seeing the huge Hapsburgic bicefal eagle on the Gate and these two soldiers guarding it.... it was like I went back in time.

PS:
I`m really sorry that I didn`t catch him entirely in the photo but the place was very crowded and I hardly took this one. He even had a musket and a sword.
