A taste of Budapest
I finally made it to the Hungarian capital on a whistle-stop weekend visit, armed with camera, lenses and tripod.
Dermot and I covered Budapest largely on foot – the best way to absorb an old and majestic city. This taster trio of photographs package up our experience neatly.
The Danube majestically meanders through the city and is arched by a number of beautiful bridges – heaven for this fancier of river crossings. Freedom Bridge reminds me of my local green Hammersmith Bridge in London.
Views. Climb steps, clamber up hills and even take a little funicular railway – and you can see Budapest in all its glory from numerous points.
Budapest is bursting at the seams with detail. Intricate ironwork on humble door grilles to coloured plasterwork, it’s all here and never runs dry.
The Hungarian capital was a photographic feast, and there’ll be more to come…
