On Shoes Monument Budapest in the Shoes challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

thejohnnerparty: That would not be an easy thing to live with if one was reminded on a daily basis. Is that a real memorial or a footnote on history?

Thank you. Nikon replaced the D600 with the D610 which I sold and purchased the D750. I do like the 24-85 lens but would like to upgrade soon. BTW, the photo was taken in August 2013 not April 2015 which was the post processing date. I should have caught that. Appreciate your kind comments.

About 10 years ago I was in an electronics store and while looking at an item an elderly gentleman asked me a question about something which led to an interesting conversation.He said he was from Budapest and as a 12 yr old child he said that his father was rounded up with many others and taken to the river. He ran down to the river to find his father & was told to leave immediately. As he was leaving he heard gun shots and turned around to see his father lying there dead. He went back & got his father's watch which had a black face.He said to this day every watch he ever purchased from then on had a black face.He was wearing one that day in the store. This was years before I went to Budapest and I was unaware of the shoe memorial.I thought of that old man while I took photos of this memorial. Poor guy had to live with that day imbedded in his memory all his life

I agree that it is overdone for some folks but Amsterdam is such a colorful place and this just seemed to fit for me. Thank you for the comment.
