body fitness in the spotlight

Hungarion version

Participants adjust their makeup before the first WBPF body building and body fitness world cup in Budaors, Hungary on June 9, 2012.

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.

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.
