Photo at weekend (2010, Weeks 33-34)

I’m posting pictures taken by the photographer from Eastern Europe, for a third time in a row.

Just as colors convey certain connotations to people, so too do the concepts of “Western” and “Eastern” Europe convey very different impressions and mental images. The former is viewed as enlightened, cultured, and progressive; the latter is seen as dark, uncivilized, and static. Western Europe is democratic; Eastern Europe is backward and totalitarian… (Eastern Europe: an introduction to the people, lands, and culture …)

One possible reason for the greater number of bad stereotypes is that they are more durable. By this reasoning, people may form either positive or negative generalizations, but they are quicker to abandon the good ones. (Social Psychology and Human Nature by Roy F. Baumeister and Brad J. Bushman)

The struggle against stereotypes is not my goal. I just want to post links to nice images taken by Martin Horbal from Slovakia.
