DEK Photography: The StadiumsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #photography3 years ago (edited)

Currently under construction, this multi-million dollar structure is of little interest to the locals, will cost a lot of their taxpayer money to maintain, but is still being constructed, because there are Euro funds available to do it, and politically connected (as in owned by politicians) construction companies are looking to appropriate public resources.

An economics professor of mine once said that he could sum up Bulgarian economics in a single sentence, he once overheard at a local village's watering hole. Upon hearing it, I suggested that all tourists should see this in big letters, on entering the country:

"Тук е тъй."

Although a bit hard to translate, it's in the lines of "It's the way it is here."

I'm on a quest to obtain the incredible Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 and the excellent Fujifilm X-T2 camera. This is a duo made in heaven, especially for street photographers, such as myself.

Great photography keep it up... upvoted!

Thank you, I appreciate it! :)

To bad you can't vote these EU guys out.

Actually, I'm all pro EU. These are children of the communists, who used to (mis)govern the country until 1989. They are nicely interconnected with the mafia as well - in fact, they've created it themselves, to do their dirty work and keep the country under their control. If there were no EU funds, they'd keep shooting themselves, fighting over territory, as they did in the 90's.

Sounds like a good thing gets corrupted by a few.

Yes. And the people pretty much behave like peasants, governed by a king. They forget that the government officials are their servants.

A cycle that repeats through history. You just have to be born at the right time. But that time seems it would be very short.
