Rotary Club Szentendre oraganises a rubber duck race ecery year at the banks of the Bükkös creek.
Another photographer gave up his objection against mobile photography. This time it is National Geographic’s Setephen Alvarez who decided to jump into photographing for his magazine with a mobile. He uses the 41 megapixel Nokia not yet available everywhere (cetainly not in Hungary), but his adventure has a great marketing value for the manufacturer – yes it is clearly advertising them.
This year we also had the usual water fight in Budapest. This time the participants looking for some fun cooled themselves down in the fountain at Vigado square.
This year there was terrible heat on the weekend of the Kecskemet Air Show, that meant a special challenge for both viewers and photographers. It wasn’t an easy task to wander around with the heavy photo equipment in the 37 degree Celsius. I guess it wasn’t easy for the pilots either however in the air they probably felt much better than people on the ground.
We have a kid’s song in Hungary about knives, forks and scissors not to be left for children – but it has not any word about a sword.
Public shooting of the Die Hard 5 movie scenes with Hungarian Army’s Mi-24 helicopter was quite instructive. It brought to the surface how people photograph helicopters. I got into delays with this post as I had no time to publish it, but the current air show at Kecskemet is a great opportunity to dig it up and publish it and hopefully it can help to some people.
