I’ve never been to Cannes myself but since the famous film festival has just finished I thought it might be interesting to mention on the blog how photographers work there. It’s a major red carpet event complete with celebrities of course, so it has many similarities to the Oscar gala I wrote about.
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.
In Thai Binh located in Indochina, the world famous war photographer who died as Robert Capa on this day in 1954 was originally born in Budapest named Endre Erno Friedmann. This here is his last photo taken before he stepped on a mine and died.

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.
This is the Real World (title of a reality show in Hungary)! Giraffes live in a place with 24/7 camera surveilance in the Budapest Zoo. Last weekend these cameras recorded how a giraffe baby came to life. Thanks to the camera system you can watch the birth.
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.
Many times I wish it rather wouldn’t exist, but many enthusiasts feel an unexplainable affection for the clicking sound of the shutter of a DSLR. One of them sat down and composed a comparison video that sounds really good – listen to it!
