In May was a good Day!

So far, May 2, 2017 was the best for me as an #Author on #Amazon: no. 65,825!

When I sold my first book (in January 2016) I was somewhere around no. 1,500,000. Now I’m in the first 100,000 authors, which I guess is not bad for a beginner. Considering there are probably around 3 millions authors on Amazon, it’s not bad at all…That means people like my work!

Of course, the chart is “moving” all the time, as you can see in the imagine, but what can I say? I can’t wait to be in Top 100 🙂

Thank you, Amazon buyers, my dear friends, for making this possible!!!

Beauty vs. ugly

I know, there is ugly everywhere. Things are sometimes ugly, or behavior is, and people can be… I’ve seen lots of ugly places, or buildings, along my routs. Yet, I try to find beauty wherever I go, and I choose to show it. After all, who said only art that shocks us can be successful? I stubbornly believe the opposite!

So, stay tuned for a new volume (18!) of the series Beautiful Places.

Coming soon!!!

Sarmizegetusa Regia, Romania

Sarmizegetusa Regia was the capital and the most important military, religious and political center of Dacia before the wars with the Roman Empire (101-102 and 105-106). Decebal (Decebalus) was the last king of Dacia. he was defeated by the Roman Emperor Traian (Trajan). The latter will move the capital to Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa (so don’t confuse the two).

Argamum (Orgame), Romania

Orgame is the first Greek polis of actual Romania mentioned in historical documents (6th Century BC by Hecataeus of Milet). It was a huge city: it seems that most of the about 100 ha is still under the ground!
Later on it was under Roman occupation (1st-5th century AD) and changed its name to Argamum.
Its ruins are waiting to be discovered! Enjoy a picture below. For more photography see the volume on Amazon:

Histria, Romania

Histria was a Greek city (polis) on the western coast of the Black Sea, close to Danube (named Ister at that time), and probably the first urban settlement (7th Century BC!) in the territory that later will become Romania.
In the first century of our era, Histria was occupied by the Romans. It was destroyed by the invasions of the Avars and the Slavs in the 7th century AD. Now, the ruins are witnesses of its rich history. Enjoy a picture of Histria. For more photography (of Histria and more), see the volume on Amazon:
