The new work section comprises completely of images from our recent trip to Budapest. A fabulous city and a wonderful trip. I hope that the images give an insight into this magnificent place!
On a darker note, the images entitled shoes on the danube tell a storey of cruelty and suffering at the end of second world war, please read below for an explaination!
The Shoes on the Danube Promenade is a memorial concept by film director Can Togay and was created by him and the sculptor Gyula Pauer on the bank of the Danube River in Budapest. It honors the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away. It represents their shoes left behind on the bank.
I have an interest in photography and am attempting to train my eye and improve my technique!
