Botanical specimen in Gorna Banya
Here are several images from my last week of roaming wild in the Rhodope Mountains and in the urban green plots here in Sofia. As you can see, life these days is richly textured and a bit otherworldly. You might also enjoy my new blog, Thracian Threads, which is a personal archive of ideas related to fashioning self and the environment in both historic, mythic, and contemporary Bulgaria.
