Etudes in Green are the personal reflections of the world by me,  Georg Tuparev, and some of my friends. These are mostly political studies. I see our world and our society through my deep-green glasses. I am opinionated, stubborn, and often controversial.  Although I am a member of a green party, my thoughts often do not reflect official political views.

Green ...

Green is the colour of the future. Green is the colour of hope. Green is the colour of love. Green is the reflection of our dreams for a better lifestyle.

Green is not a doctrine or dogma, green is the way of life in harmony with the Nature and the Universe.

Etudes ...

Études (French word meaning study) are instrumental (mostly piano) musical compositions, usually written to provide practice materials of considerable difficulty with the goal of perfecting particular musical skills. My favourite etudes include Bach's Goldberg Variations, Debussy's Études, nd Rachmaninoff's Études-Tableaux.

Languages ...

Depending on the subject, I will write mostly in English or Bulgarian, but occasional postings in German, Dutch, Russian or Spanish are possible. I think and dream in few languages. When writing about Bulgarian politics it is most natural to think in Bulgarian, when bashing Brussels' bureaucracy, English feels more natural, and when discussing renewable energy sources or Energiewende, German feels the right language. 

Images and credits ...

Most images of Bulgarian nature are done by my dear colleague and friend Irina Popova. She is an incredeble photographer and spends most of her free time in the Nature. She has a special feeling for detail and bueaty.

Often I will post also my own images, taken with my mobile phone. They will have more historic or factual value and not so much an artistic one. And yes, occasionally, I will take my own camera and shoot few images of nature, buildings, or just interesting (to me) impressions.
