Photographer's Note

Double eyes and autumn.

You can already see autumn colors in Sibiu. Sibiu is known as the city with eyes. The gothic style buildings reflect the Hungarian-German influence and many carry a common feature in their heavy tiled roof top: small attic windows that appear as eyelids looking down upon you. Houses use them as a cooling system for their attics. Most of the “eyes” were built between the 15th and 19th centuries. In the tall houses there are normally two eyes, but some of them have three, four or even five eyes.
