Probably the penultimate Budapest photo, after which I’ll have to get out
and take some new shots if I’m to maintain this year’s break-neck rate of
posting. This shot was taken on Margaret Island, which lies in the middle of
the Danube between Buda and Pest. Apparently during the summer the gardens
are the Hungarian equivalent of Hyde Park, but during winter it was largely
empty, a hint of post-communist-wasteland to the deserted paths and
vandalised buildings. Only an occasional well-wrapped couple strolling
through the snow, and perhaps a disconcerting foreigner peeking from between
the trees…
