I went to Romania to celebrate my 40th birthday. As a vampirologist, I was looking forward to exploring both the history of Vlad Tepes and the literary Dracula. This memorial to Vlad Tepes stands in Targoviste opposite his famous Royal Court. It was the first statue of Vlad I saw in Romania – I was blown away. Taken with a Canon EOS 3000. Converted from b&w film.
