budapest [part two]
the danube is a broad swath of river, criss-crossed by stately bridges and enveloping a couple tiny islands. the water turns an inky, beguiling blue come twilight.
budapest has the best doorways. i photographed a half-dozen or so, and found myself wishing i knew the stories behind each one.
it seems the half-century of soviet occupation has left its mark; some of the prettier remains are the painted eggs and matryoshkas.
knee-level at an indoor market.
a view of the flat, pest side of the city.
street musicians. these guys were ridiculously talented.
fishermen's bastion on the castle hill.
it's impossible not to love a city with beauty and history carved into every corner. (one more round to come.)
