Chain Bridge

Budapest, Hungary July, 2000
These photographs were made during a month long Artist Residency in Hungary during the summer of 2000. This was before shortly before the 9/11 attack. I traveled with so much gear that I was so very tired of carrying them after the trip. I brought with me a heavy Manfrotto tripod for the medium format camera, Mamiya C330. Although these shots were taken on the fly as I was walking around the city without the tripod.

The boat docks near the Deck Restaurant for diner and drinks.
Checking with Foursquare, the tip left by several people recommended the shrimp cocktail.  It came in a tall class and at the bottom is cold slaw top brimming full of shrimp, from a can I suspect.  It is served with Ritz cracker.  We didn't mind because the hostess sat us at the edge of the deck next to the sunset.  As the evening sunset it turn a varaity shades of orange, yellows, and red.  I stood up to frame the view on my iphone.  Why am I always without my micro four thirds when such an event, phenomena occurs?

Jazzy Places.

Jazzy Places
I started a list of Jazz songs with place names in the title. I put together a playlist on Grooveshark which will be broadcast whenever I'm on line. Thanks for listening. The playlist link is here. Feel free to make suggestions. I'll adding to the ever growing list. Written with a Lamy Safari fountain pen loaded with Waterman Havana brown color ink. on Staples 'Arc' Circa, Rollabind like notebook.
The Jazzy Place project is like a little story that begins to gather stuff momentum around it. For example. Yesterday, I was listening to The Nightfly by Donald Fagen. The first song on the album is I.G.Y and the second song is 'Green Flower Street'. Then I was listening to something, 'The Wind up Bird chronicles? It mentions Herb Albert's song with the place name but it was a stinker of a song. A walk in the Black Forrest is one of them. These songs don't have to have a real city or place names. For example, It could be "Highway Rider" by Brad Meldau, which is about a place and a journey.
Brad Meldau has an album with place names appropriately called 'Places'. Smooth jazz genera loves place names in there song titles.
