Budapest [3 imgs]
Mar 23, 2005

I went to Budapest for an extended weekend with some friends - and my D70 with my new 50mm f/1.4 and 20mm f/2.8 lenses.

We mostly just hung out, seeing the city by day - and by night. I didn't carry my camera with me all the time, but had a couple of days were I got some shots. Budapest is a wonderful city, highly recommended for it's continental atmosphere, and theinteresting feel, caught between the grandeur of the 1800/1900 turn of the century and the grey communist era.

These were from the nice and shiny side of Budapest, from the impressive buildings and sites from Budapest's golden age. In the next post I added some shots from Budapest's darker years behind the iron curtain, and the buildings and just a little stench of that atmosphere, still hangs over part of the city. It makes for a very interesting visit!
