Passing through Bucharest in the second half of the sixteenth century (1574), Frenchman Pierre Lescalopier left in the very center testimony that there were two beautiful and holy places, one of which is the Church of Saint George.
It is therefore one of the oldest churches in the city.
Historical documents from the late sixteenth century remember that church, known mostly through their relics preserved today: “the right hand of St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra, especially silver plated, adorned with diamanturi, given Io, Michael Prince (Brave) and Lady Stanca, in the year 7407 (1599), steward (the) Metropolitan Eftimie “.

There are some people who could hear you speak a thousand words, and still not understand you.
And there are others who will understand — without you even speaking a word.

So says Ratty to Mole in the first chapter of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale, only to crash straight into the river bank. Ah, bliss.
I feel much the same when it comes to messing about with photographs and textures to create something unique. Sometimes I crash; sometimes something wonderful and unexpected happens. Such was the case with Tangle Mountain.
I began with this intriguing photograph of a castle in Liechtenstein by Karpati Gabor downloaded from Morguefile. I was particularly struck by the seemingly painted effect of the land and castle. The latter looks as though it has come from a

Dora de Houghton Carrington (29 March 1893 – 11 March 1932), known generally as Carrington, was a British painter and decorative artist, remembered in part for her association with members of the Bloomsbury Group, especially the writer Lytton Strachey.
The daughter of a Liverpool merchant, she was born in Hereford, England, and attended the all-girls’ Bedford High School which emphasized art. Her parents also paid for her to receive extra lessons in drawing.

I’ve sold one of these clocks! They’re available in different sizes and also a square shape.

And nothing ‘gainst Time’s scythe can make defence
Save breed, to brave him when he takes thee hence.”
