All Saints Session 2010 Ruin1 Timisoara
Timisoara

on November 1st - the All Saints Day - The Day of the Dead - in other parts celebrated Halloween, I took some long waited photos of certain places I don't visit too often but may be interesting.


After two panoramas of a ruin (the building is in the very center and appears to have been sabotaged because of some obscured real estate speculations), passing near the old IP Banat - the old typography, now in waiting to become a supermarket or something like that in our rotten capitalist economy, I got to a Cemetery - Cimitirul Eroilor. (It was the second one that day because I've visited first the grave of my family).

Not complaining or commenting on the way people do behave on such occasions, but when they visit theyr loved departed ones, one cannot but wonder why on earth the heroes, who willingly or not gave their lives on different occasions - seem so dead and forgotten. With those mixed feelings I shot the cenotaphs of Russian, Serbian (at the time Yugoslavian), French (among those there were a few moslem ones from the WWI...), German, revolutionaries from different times and often confronted from opposed lines and even different monuments which - exiled by the former communist regime ended in the cemetery - such as the Loyality Monument, a gift to the town from Frantz Josef after the 149 day siege of the 1849 Revolution when it resisted the Hungarian Revolutionary troops; or a Maria Teresa monument too degraded to have a better place and so on. Their deaths - seeming too pointless to my weak mind - should have brought the peace, prosperity and the liberty they all were send to fight for...

Well putting aside the thoughts of death and hopelessness I hope you enjoy the love of your dear ones as much as possible

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
