Marcel, iPhone XS Max

‘My name is Marcel but my friends call me Goose. I’m originally from Oradea Romania but I currently live in Chicago Illinois with my wife and 2 boys. I’m not a professional photographer but it’s my favorite pastime. This photo was taken in Oradea just off the main promenade on Strada(street) Aurel Lazar. It had this brutalism/communist era vibe to it when I took the photo back in May of 2021. The fascade of the building has since been updated with a new paint and stucco job, I’m glad I was there before that to get this cool shot. Photo was taken on an iPhone XS Max using the 11 MP wide camera (26 mm f1.8).’
