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!
Once I have a photo archive and we live such historic times with the COVID19 pandemic, I made a before/after photo pairs gallery about the effects of the pandemic and the currfew on tourism.
170 years aggo on April 4th. in 1849. Hungarian soldiers defeated advancing Austrian forces at villagge Tapiobicske.
169 years after the real Battle of Tapiobicske history enthusiasts reenacted the famous event with great joy. Hundreds of school children witnessed the unique history lesson and they enjoyed it almost as much as the people participating dressed as Austrian or Hungarian soldiers.
This weekend I photographed the pillowfight under the Millenium monument at Heroes square in Budapest, Hungary. Just like during the years before there were a lot of joyful participants enjoying the fun of the event, hitting each other until their stamina lasted. Then they cleaned up the mess caused by the feather and other stuffing released by the pillows.
Last weekend Hungary hosted this year’s Cart European Championship of the dogsled association FISTC. Because there was no snow in the whole country, all the competitors had to roll in carts.
It took me for a while to set up this gallery, but I hope you still like to watch it. Some of the pictures have been pubished by Hungarian daily Blikk and the Daily Mail as well, but this one is a rather broader selection of my images.
Budapest’s Shark Zoo the Tropicarium has a tradition with the shark feeding. Easter time the scuba divers wear bunny dresses.
Some of my readers asked me to write a behind the scenes post about photographing Formula1 at race track Hungaroring dolgozni.
