It is hard to imagine how strong structures can be made from the everyday strings of pasta we eat for dinner. Yet Hungarian students every year spend long hours but rather days building spaghetti bridges only to have them broken (or blown) into pieces for the sake of the Reccs (meaning ‘crack’ in Hungarian) competition – no wonder some of them can’t bear to watch it.
It is a common question: how can you find out if a photographer is professional or not. There are many different answers but below is one set of possible criteria.
I’ve kept mentioning the World Dog Show for days now, let me show a selection of my images taken there. I left out the ones that already appeared here on the blog.
I don’t like to praise my photos but some times maybe posts like this won’t hurt you on my blog. Today morning I discovered the surprise that my photo was choosen as THE Picture of the Day. However to align the topic I could say it is choosen as Best in Show.
Other than these day’s usual phenomenon of everyone taking photos with cameras and mobile phones even photographers considered to be press attended yesterday’s World Dog Show in large numbers. There were almost as much photographers trying to snap the winning dogs as it is usual at the olympics or in Formula 1. We had far less photographers a week before at the kayak-canoe world cup.

Last week’s edition of the German Stern Magazine have published one of my photos taken at the last Critical Mass bicycle procession on two pages. Not a big thing but still feels good t see it in a large print – and it also looks good!
I wish a happy Easter to everyone! I hope the holiday goes well for everyone (including the bunny!) and that you are already done with decorating your eggs. If not, here are some traditional ideas in this post from Hungary.
Sometimes people sitting or standing in the background can dramatically change a photo…

Yesterday was the very first time I phtoographed fireworks from the top of hill Gellert. During the years before Citadelle was closed for health and safety. The former fortress on the top of the hill has been the main site where rockets were fired from. Usually all the surrounding area was off limits for viewers. Not so this year as the rockets this time were fired from boats on river Danube. This let me try a new perspective from the hill top during fireworks.
