National Art Museum (MNAC) – Barcelona, Spain

I had read about the fountains in front of the “Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya” and just had to go take a look. As I was there in November, the Magic Fountain was switched off. If you do plan to go to see this fountain then the schedule is April to September (Thursday, Friday Saturday […]

Casa de la Pedrera – Barcelona, Spain

Also known as Casa Milà. I strategically chose a hotel on the east side of Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes. It would be in “walking distance” to many of the locations I wanted to visit and near the main metro lines. After shooting La Sagrada Familia in the blue hour, I walked west to […]

Liberty Bridge – Budapest, Hungary

On the way down from the top of Gellert Hill, I spotted this view from the edge of the hill. The Liberty Bridge is just as iconic as the Chain Bridge, IMHO. If only I had had a few more days to take compositions in different light.

As I sat on the bench for a respite and took in the night air, I remember thinking how so many European capital cities are similar in geography and construct. There always seems to be a major river running through, an iconic bridge […]

Hungarian Parliament at Night – Budapest, Hungary

The beautiful Gothic styled Hungarian Parliament Building is most definitely the brightest building at night. At the time I was in Budapest I was not able to get close as the area was cordoned off for major building work and what looks like the construction of an under parking facility. Setting up on the other […]

South of the Danube at Night – Budapest, Hungary

I was across from the Hungarian Parliament building waiting for a cruise boat to move away from the dock. It was getting dark and I was missing the blue in the sky so I looked around for another position. I wondered what the view would look like from the Margaret Bridge so I took a […]

Great Market Hall – Budapest, Hungary

I was hungry, in Hungary (sorry), so I went to the Great Market Hall to grab some fruit that I could consume during my wanderings. On the top floor are small eateries that serve snacks and Hungarian treats. I wanted to try some Hungarian specialities and so I had one snack/meal from a few of […]
