Break in Budapest

To soften the blow of coming home from a summery Australia to the frozen tundra of Northern Europe I went for a week to Budapest with the class for a week of photography. The winter has been long and hard in Europe, but there were sure fire signs of spring in Budapest: trees in bloom, crowded street side cafés, sunshine (mostly) and no need for more than a light jacket. 

We went out for night photography one evening. I had chosen to leave my tripod at home since I wanted to travel light. I tried to use ‘natural’ supports and got one or two shots this way.

Without the tripod it was pretty boring to follow my class mates. So I started to experiment a bit. Or was it just too much coffee?

I liked the result and continued with long exposures and a bit of camera movements (or was it the coffees I had drunk? Hopefully it was not the absence of an evening beer or two)
