I have been working on a story about one of the last leper colonies in Europe, in Tichilesti, Romania. There are about 21 patients who live in what they call a leper hospital. In fact, it's a small community of nice elderly people who share a tiny village. It's more like summer camp, where everyone has their little room or house, with gardens, little vegetable crops, pets, and whatever they please. I'll post the story when I'm done but, for now, I just wanted to post a few portraits of some of the people I've been spending time with.

Oina Strikes Back. Literally.

Here's some stuff I shot at the final of the Romanian Oina Cup in Constanta.
*Straja Bucuresti warming up before the game
*looking for a ball (they're really low on funding, so they can't afford to lose equipment)
*practicing the bat grab (that's how they decide which team starts)
*warming up (remember Mizzou softball, Ben?)


Lately I've been slacking, as far as my blog goes, so I decided to throw in here a few shots I've taken during these past weeks. Here's NG writer Andreea, one sunny morning, in front of a tea house.
