This is how photographers wait for the start of the Singapore Formula 1 grand prix in a top level bathroom to take their awesome photos of the beautifully lit city.
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.
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.
It is not the first time and perhaps not the last either Budapest to greet a president of the USA. Visit of George W. Bush in the city will be memorable for me. Not only because it is connected to the commemoration events of the 1956 uprising, but because it was the first time I had a chance to photograph the president of the USA and the first lady – but not the last time to this either.
