As we’ve established last time, the reason for visiting Old Orhei back in June was my cousin’s wedding. So most of the party climbed up for a decent photoshoot. At first I attempted to follow suit.
Partly because I was a little afraid of these guys.
But about halfway through my shoes proved to be unsuitable for the mission. I kept sliding back every several steps. And while I could’ve made it up, I certainly wouldn’t have made it down.
Not gracefully, at least.
And certainly not in one piece.
If these photos all look a bit samey – well, that’s because they are. Enjoy the glory of nature, friends.
This boulder, for example. Isn’t it magnificent?!
I could’ve cropped the cars, but I wanted to keep them as proof that I did attempt to climb the cliff. It was just not meant to be.

Back to these guys I go. Hello guys, please don’t chase me and pinch me.
Aren’t these clouds beautiful? They almost make me think that I’m looking at the ocean from above, instead of, you know, at the sky from below.
The real reason these geese appear so often in these photos is because I kept an eye on them.
Just in case.
These are geese, right? I once mistook geese for ducks. Because I’m a city dweller and am shamefully uneducated in most aspects of the country life.
There’s the party, taking pictures, being glamorous. There, that white blob in the middle. That’s my cousin in her impressive wedding dress.
The treacherous shoes.
If you’re wondering about the dress (you are, aren’t you?!), it’s Pronovias Pergola.
… .And that, my friends, is why I’ll never be a wedding photographer.
Bigger versions of all of these (except the gif) are available at my flickr.
P.S.: Fancy looking at Old Orhei in the autumn? I’ve got a few ooold posts about that, just take a look at the category ‘Old Orhei‘.
