Beside the obvious play on words, I have been searching for a way to inject colour into the urban landscape of Sofia. Since my arrival, I have noticed that Bulgaria is a stark contrast of natural beauty and square, grey, suburban communist architecture. Although the city center is a collection of impressive cultural structures, I sometimes feel trapped by the contoured liquid rock that forms the buildings within which I work and roads on which I travel. The mountains, parks and countryside provide a convenient escape when the rigid grey walls seem to creep in.
This is image is less a photography, and more a representation of the diverse city of Sofia. The bottom layer of this image is an HDR photo of Boris Gardens in Sofia while the top layer is a black and white photo of one of the many buildings found here in Sofia. The two photos were merged using Photoshop.
