A gigapanorama taken in London recently has broken all records with its 320 gigapixels. Gigapixel-count is a type of competition that seemed to have gone off the boil recently after years of one large resolution photo beating the previous recordholder from the week before.
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.
The world’s largest cities celebrated the annual Earth Hour, what has been composed into a beautyful gallery in what you can turn off the lights yourself.
Earth Hour was held on Saturday evening at half past eight what results a characteristic series of photo pairs every year. Local landmarks with and without their beautiful night lights. This is commonly photographed by Hungarian photographers as well, but limited time and large space makes it harder to take a complex gallery if you shoot alone. Even publications that have enough photographers to mage a broader selection of photos rarely spend that much time and effort into making this type of coverage.
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.
