Budapest on Film

Friday, 9 March 2012

The other month I shared a post about Brighton on Film, and today I thought I'd share another, but this time it's all about Budapest. Budapest was the last Euro trip we took before moving to Melbourne, and we visited in late November when it was cold, grey and drizzly. During our time there we mainly did a lot of walking around—back and forth across the Lánchíd chain bridge; through the Royal Palace grounds; along the Danube; around the parliament building and exploring the Christmas markets, sampling mulled wine and Kürtőskalács (chimney cake), a popular Hungarian pastry.

Budapest has a pretty mixed history, and there are signs of this dotted around the city. We visited Memento Park and the House of Terror museum—both sobering experiences. But there is also plenty of beauty to be found in Budapest; it's cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe for a reason. Hopefully these photographs (all taken on my Diana+) help to capture a little bit of that beauty.

I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Budapest with me! It's always nice to end the week with a little bit of daydreaming, don't you think? Enjoy your weekends lovely readers and I'll see you back here next week! x

  2. Oh! Your photos are beautiful! It looks like you used actual film as well; not digital. It always has such a lovely effect. I went to Budapest (and a few other Hungarian cities) as one of the points on a long European road trip in the summer with my family and tried to take loads of photos, but these 6 shots along seem to hold so much more beauty. Do you work with film often?? What kind of camera do you have?
    It's funny too (to me) I have been watching your blog for a little while now admiring your work and enjoying your posts, but it's only now - with the images of a shared(...sorta) memory of a beautiful city - that I actually comment.

    1. Thanks so much for commenting Nicole, and for your kind words! Your European trip sounds amazing!

      I took these photographs using a Diana+ camera (a lomo camera) using Kodak Potra film. The Diana+ produces such a lovely, dreamy effect. I love shooting on film, but don't get around to it as often as I'd like to!
