Great holmertz 2019-02-03 4:09

Hello Gyφrgy,
It is not a snapshot in the usual sense, obviously carefully composed, but you snapped it at the right moment when the cyclist was in a perfect position, a little bit to the side of the sculpture. There is a fine view of important and beautiful buildings through the frame made by the dark vault, but the most interesting details are probably the memories of the fighting in 1956. I am almost chocked to realize that I remember the news from Budapest in those days quite well, including the photos of civilians having friendly chats with the Soviet soldiers at the beginning of the uprising. I guess I didn't fully understand what was going on, but it scared me because I noticed that my parents were worried.
Have a nice Sunday,
Gert

Default To holmertz: re-

Dear Gert,

How old were you in 1956? Your photos from here in Hungary were taken in 1969. Presuming that you were around 18 at least, when you started to travel across Europe, I guess you had to be five the least in the year of the Revolution. I'm a lawyer so don't be mad at me if my calculations are wrong!

Have a nice Sunday!
Gy.

I was 9. And 22 when I was in Hungary. So you can figure out how old I am now.

Old like the dust of the road! (Hungarian proverbial comparison, in English: as the old as the hills)
