Surprising and adventurous story of how my camera got lost and found. I mentioned my old story in a recent blog post about a lost camera and I told I too managed to loose a big and heavy camera once. Like many others. It is a years old story, what I wanted to publish many times, but I never did ever since. Here is the story I learned at least one very important lesson.

Many of my female friends don’t like the masculine folk tradition of Easter waterings that is mandatory part of the festive in Hungary. Some straight consider it to be harrassment – including my photos of it. I think it is important to tell on Easter Monday I too get watered – I hope not to wither without this celebrartion this year!

An interesting legal debate started when Steven Spielberg (employees) didn’t allow a photographer to take paparazzi photos of a movie shooting on the streets of New York. Security guards did everything they could to prevent photographing the movie shooting. They installed blockades, canvases, privacy screens and held umbrellas in front of the photographer to block his view. Photographer in return sued the movie company for infringing First amendment rights as New York streets are private property and it is part of freedom of speech to take photos of things happening on the streets.

I don’t like to go into sophistry in photo techniques. Firstly because so many other photographers do it, I don’t want to join the queue. Secondly, there are so many different views and approaches one cannot expect everyone to follow the same rules all the time and think everyone is mistaken for doing things in a different way.

Few days ago I wrote about the photo gear theft at Hungaroring photo centre last weekend and I wouldn’t want to come back to he theft topic again. However I have to write about this too. At Sziget Festival you should also watch out for your valuables. In the big crowd it is just as easy to loose something accidentally as it is possible to run into thieves and get things stolen.

Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago. During the operations I made a time-lapse video to show you how the rescue happened. The time-lapse below shows the nearly 10 hours long process in only 1 minute.Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago.
