13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Sunset over the City of Sevlievo, Bulgaria

This photo overlays the decaying Soviet-style block-of-flats architecture that characterizes so many Bulgarian cities, against the backdrop of a magnificent spring sunset. It is, in a way, exemplary of the paradox of Bulgaria - the remains of the difficult past, pasted upon some of the most beautiful nature one can feast one's eyes upon.
