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.

George W. Bush president of the US delivers his speech held in Budapest, Hungary on June 22, 2006.

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.
