About The Ekaterina Petrova Blog

The ground beneath my feet: In a slightly unusual approach to the places she inhabits and travels to, Ekaterina takes pictures of her feet standing on interesting surfaces in spots and/or with people she wants to remember and writes stories about them. From Sofia, Bulgaria, where she is based, to Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia, Hungary, Germany and Spain, the blog encompasses various cities and locations around Europe, but soon hopes to cross oceans to other continents as well. Here, you can read a selection of her blog.

But sometimes I take that... Full Story

This was taken during the first edition of the Mellow Music Festival, which took place in Sofia at the end of May.
