Photographer's Note

Something old and different today, a few days ago fello member Liliana asked me why I have never been to Romania, actually I went there in 1997 and in 2000, but most of my negatives were damaged if not destroyed in a coffee spill accident (with milk, no sugar). A few, such as this one, survived, but the better ones died. This was taken in Brasov at around sunset, I do not know which church this is, at the time the famous Black Church was totally under scaffolding.

The title was inspired by a song by Black Sabbath, I did not disturb this fellow I hope. Since I cannot identify the church, I will write about the song: Ian Gillan, formerly of Deep Purple (the voice behind "Smoke on the Water"), briefly joined Black Sabbath in 1983, the resulting sound was a unique blend of "Black Purple", I personally liked the songs, though the sound quality and album cover artwork were both atrocious. An excerpt from the lyrics:

The force of the devil is the darkness the priest has to face
The force of the night will destroy him but will not disgrace
To get into his mind and to his soul you gotta set alight
The flames of doubt so deep inside inside
The devil and the priest can't exist if one goes away
It's just like the battle of the sun and the moon and night and day
The force of the devil, that's we're all told to fear
Watch out for religion when he gets too near too near
