First real snow

Last night we had the first real snow in Bucharest. I'm saying "real" since it had snowed once before, but just for an hour or so.

Freshmen's prom

There's a sort of prom for freshmen in Romania's colleges. A friend had to photograph one last night, so I tagged along and tried to shoot the mood of the place.

1: Prom queen and king wannabes check their outfits in the mirror in the bathroom before going on stage.
2: People dancing up on a balcony.
3: A lot of photographing went on throughout the night.
4: And a little flirt.

The traffic in Bucharest is getting worse from one day to the next. Last night I called my friend Ikuru and suggested that we each go out and photograph the traffic jam. The problem was that last night a lot of police was out, so there was no jam, at least where I walked. So here's a rough start to a soon-to-come essay on traffic.
