<<< o >>>Buzludzha #3 8 comments + add yours

I have three more shots from my trip to Buzludzha with Craig that I'll post over the next few days: this one, another shot of the exterior of the building, an alternative view of the interior, and my favourite that I'll post on Monday. After that I'm not sure what I'll put up. I still have quite a few wedding shots, 13 shots from my recent trip to the UK, and another handful of shots that I took while wandering around Bulgaria with Craig. As I'm heading off to Dubai on Monday though, followed by a trip to Oman, I may post something from there.

Interesting textures and tones.

Whose the chap on the wall? Great to see the detail that you brought out. What an interesting composition.

Mooch: thanks.

Carlos: I don't know who he is, but would suspect that he probably had something to do with the communist regime.

I think its this chap, the last Dictator of the Communist regime that had rule until 1989 when the Monument was destroyed, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todor_Zhivkov, I took this and processed it in a similar way... very Banksy esque...

Looks like a LDS prophet Gordon B Hinkley.

This image with the words "repent" kinda threw a flag to me.

In fact I think I'll have a bet and say that without a shadow of a doubt, this is him http://www.novinite.com/view_news.php?id=87733

With the chip off the wall on his forehead, it actually looks like Mikhail Gorbechev. :)

Hey... I am Mormon and that looks like our our former president Gordon B. Hinckley. He passed away not too long ago and he was a great man. This picture reminded me of him and I sure miss his presence in this world. I was very saddened to see him go. Which country is this??
