PHOTOESSAY: LIFE IN BUDAPEST, PART 2

Life in Budapest, Hungary

Travel is a state of mind. It has nothing to do with existence or the exotic. It is almost always an inner experience.

  1. Same great standard. Keep ’em coming. I can’t get enough of good photographs.

    1. Thank you Mari. You make my day. πŸ™‚

  2. great pictures, I enjoyed my time in Budapest years ago.

    1. Thank you. While there for only about a week I found Budapest very comfortable, very liveable.

      1. I agree, I spent three weeks there and had a great time interacting with people. Loved the food too.

  3. Clearly smoking is alive and well there! In the first shot, it looks like the woman, who is probably Hungarian but still looks like a lady matador upon first glance, is beaming up at Mr.Trendy’s hair, impressed by how it so seamlessly matches the color of his skinny khakis. And he’s exhaling, thinking, “I’m not that into you. Where can I get some more menthols?” The second one is all about the amber/yellow, but it’s interesting how there is a perfectly good bench and the woman had decided she cannot possibly sit on it in a conventional way; she will sit on the armrest instead. I also like how the musician w/ the addiction has his arm around his instrument in a proprietary way, almost like she is his woman.

    1. Oh, Kerbey, I love the way you bring life to my images – give them personalities – flaws and all. What a hoot. Thank. πŸ™‚

  4. Just been to Budapest for first visit recently and loved it. I like the way that you captured the people, whereas I looked more at the buildings. Love your photos, a great look at Budapest.

    1. I’ve got lots of buildings, too, and will be sharing some soon. Thanks.

  5. Such a diverse and beautiful look at this city ~ there is nothing better than sitting down and getting to know the people and town, which it looks like you are doing well. Cheers to your adventure!

    1. Yes, as you noted, one of the charms of Budapest is its diversity – both the city and its people. Thanks Randall.

  6. I really love this photo essay of Budapest, Ron. Thanks again for your inspiration. πŸ™‚

    1. You are more than welcome. I still have one more post on Budapest to go.

  7. Thanks for this intimate glimpse into one of my favorite places in the whole world! All the best to you in travels and life!

    1. One of my favorite places as well. Thanks so much for your kind words.
