Costesti - Gypsy's Tailgating

So, I had a chance to photograph Gypsy/Roma people's three-days long gathering in Costesti Saturday evening. It was fun, but people were too nice and friendly and curious to me to photograph. I was followed by kids, instead of me following. I guess I really need to spend a long time with the same people to make them forget about my camera and myself...

These are great, Ikuru. I really like the one of the two boys cocking their toy guns.

Yes. The guns. Really good work, Ikuru.

Ikuruuuuu!!!
Man, I've been out of the blogs since school started again.
I see you're kicking ass wherever you go. Can you already speak romanian? Are you hanging with Andrei?
Send news, bro!

Nice stuff, Ikuru. I love how you photographed the guns, but didn't write anything about them, as if they were routine. What were the Roma carrying them for? To shoot in the air?

Alex - well, a lot of kids over there seemed to like to play with fake guns just for fun. A lot of kids were smoking cigarette. I will try to go deep on this later, but they have different cultures, to say the least.
