Bran - Dracula's Castle II

"A house cannot be made habitable in a day; 
and, after all, how few days go to make up a century."

Bram Stoker

Bran - Dracula's Castle

"The view was magnificent, and from where I stood there was every opportunity of seeing it. 
The castle is on the very edge of a terrific precipice. 
A stone falling from the window would fall a thousand feet without touching anything! 
As far as the eye can reach is a sea of green tree tops, with occasionally a deep rift where there is a chasm. 
Here and there are silver threads where the rivers wind in deep gorges through the forests.

But I am not in heart to describe beauty, for when I had seen the view I explored further; 
doors, doors, doors everywhere, and all locked and bolted. 
In no place save from the windows in the castle walls is there an available exit.
The castle is a veritable prison, and I am a prisoner!"

MySpot: Autumnal

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. 
People change so that you can learn to let go, 
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, 
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, 
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

Marilyn Monroe

MySpot: It Was One of Those March Days

"If people did not love one another, 
I really don't see what use there would be in having any spring."

London, 2015: London Art

"Color in certain places 
has the great value of making the outlines and structural planes seem more energetic."

Antoni Gaudi
