Street Walking - Autumn - Bucharest, 2010

The wind gently undresses Cismiu park till soon you can see the tree bones.

The air has edges. And whispers of coming chills, moving populace to heavy, dark coats and the nose-ear rescue of hand-knit scarves.

Tooth-gapped vendors street-offer hats of fur or curly lamb for a few hundred leu. Welcome now. Necessary soon.

It is Autumn in Bucharest City Centru. By this time next month, it will be a mere, warm memory.

Now it is a pleasant Saturday afternoon walkaround with jacket and camera.

Perfect Imagery. I've forgotten about that short time before fall becomes fall in earnest, when Cismigiu is abuzz with people soaking up the last bits of soon to be forgotten summer. This is also when centru civic Bururesti is at its finest. Bundle up for the long, cold winter. May your nights be filled with ciorba de perisoara and cafea buna.
