Photographer's Note

Christmas is coming to Brasov and the city council plucked one massive fir tree from the nearby forest and stuck it in the old (historic) council square.Now they merrily decorate it using an industrial "nacelle" type lifter with two workers and careful supervision from a ground-based artist shouting "that star, more to the left, don't forget to lift that led stripe". The whole thing happens at some 25-30 m in the air as passers-by fling their cellphones or cameras or whatever imaging devices they carry and record the spectacle.
Sorry about the view- it's a forced wide perspective on a Samsung A70 cellphone- I don't currently have any lens that is as wide as this-and the odd format is what this wide setting outputs.No processing apart from a minor sharpening (that in the end was not really necessary). It's my first time so late in the year in Brasov so I don't know if this is a regular habit or it was a spectacular one-off.Anyhow, enjoy and partake in the wondders of a post-industrial Christmas.
