Relics from behind the Iron Curtain.
I know the TWiP audience is familiar with Don Komarechka because of his frequent appearances on the mothership. Don is a photographer, educator and author who is known for shooting things that most of us never see. His book Sky Crystals: Unraveling the Mysteries of Snowflakes shows both his eye for beautiful images and his near super-human technical skill.
Don was telling me about his upcoming return trip to Bulgaria while we were both on TWiP, and I was blown away by his images of the crumbling Soviet buildings he showed me. Once again, Don had captured beautiful and unusual images of things you and I might never see otherwise.
Please watch the video podcast above so you can see the images. It truly looks like a movie set, and it makes me want to head for Eastern Europe!
