Poarta, 7 September

After the process is complete there's some time for wine, cake, and conversation. The priest spoke excellent English and we got into a serious religious debate due to the fact that we are from two different camps—he's a Canon photographer and I'm a Nikon fan. Of course the foundation of our passion is the same: you pass light through a lens and make an exposure. It's how you go about it that differs. We'll never change, but we shook hands as friends—understanding our common ground while respecting and appreciating our differences.
