Photographer's Note

Traditional old out buildings and farming equipment from Transilvania. The significance of the location in Transilvania of this image will be understood by any Dracula fans. Anyone who has read the novel by Bram Stoker or seen the last remake with Keanu Reeves will know Tihuta Pass by its old name, Borgo Pass. It is the location of Draculas Castle. It is where Johnathan Harker is taken to meet Count Dracula at his castle. The 'Castle' is able to be seen from this spot, out of picture to the right. There is a legend that says there was a castle here once long ago, today the only castle is a replica hotel built in the traditional style to capture the mood and history related to the Bram Stoker story. The equipment and buildings seen here are the impliments used by the nuns who inhabit the monastery here and live off the land.
