budapest [part two]

danube.
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.


wandering.

entryway.
budapest has the best doorways. i photographed a half-dozen or so, and found myself wishing i knew the stories behind each one.


angled.

painted.
it seems the half-century of soviet occupation has left its mark; some of the prettier remains are the painted eggs and matryoshkas.


market.
knee-level at an indoor market.


looking down.
a view of the flat, pest side of the city.


street musicians.
street musicians. these guys were ridiculously talented.


arches.

peering out.
fishermen's bastion on the castle hill.


memorialized.
it's impossible not to love a city with beauty and history carved into every corner. (one more round to come.)
