Travel Scan: House in Transylvania

I finally got some of my old slides scanned onto CDs. Some turned out great, some … not. I was using my boyfriend’s camera back then, and it was my first SLR. I had no idea what I was doing, and had to ask him what settings to use for the first roll or two. After a while, I noticed he kept giving me the same settings, so I started doing what I wanted. It’s kind of a miracle that the shots turned out at all. I’m so used to instant results with my digital camera, I’m amazed that I could wait for months to see the results.


It’s been a while, but I’m pretty sure this is a house. We were traveling through Transylvania and had stopped for gas when I spotted the place. Transylvania isn’t creepy at all, even though it’s the setting for Dracula. The Carpathian Mountains are green and beautiful and the people very friendly.

Hope your week’s going well so far . . . .

  1. It’s not creepy? I did want to visit there, but if it’s not creepy, doesn’t that take a lot of the fun out of it?

  2. Caroline says:

    The color of this shot is stunning. I wouldn’t have guessed where this is located.
    I’m disapppointed as well, I wanted Transylvania to be creepy.

    Every little hamlet has a little bank. Do they have a blood bank?

    Very cool house. Good photo!

  4. Did you notice a lot of bats hanging around? Tee Hee.

    Isn’t it amazing how we used to wait weeks and weeks for our film to be developed? My niece and nephew don’t know anything but digital cameras. They always want to look on the back of the camera for the results. πŸ™‚

    • Not a one. πŸ™‚

      I guess I was so used to waiting, I didn’t think about it. But in this case it was months because we waited to get back to Germany before having the slides developed. My boyfriend decided we wouldn’t buy any more film while on the trip, so I had to budget very carefully. Now I would take thousands of shots.

    I really want to go there. I hear the mountains are just stunning. If I was wandering around at night, I might get a little spooked there.

  6. Was it really that green (the house)? Or was it the settings you used?
