Szent István Park: A Small Park at the Bank of the Danube

Located at the bank of the Danube, this small park in Budapest is extremely popular among the inhabitants of the district - old and young alike.

The Szent István park is a popular place for a reason. It is very well kept although it has definitely seen better days; and provides many opportunities for recreation. The proximity of the Danube ensures that it always has fresh air; it is very conveniently placed so many people living in the district can easily reach it through a short walk or public transport.

It is the best place to go if you wish to take your kids to play after school/kindergarten or before Sunday lunch. The park itself offers several opportunities for fun; it also has its own playground and basketball court.

Being a beautiful park with a good view and nice atmosphere, it is equally popular among the adults too. It is a good place to read or have lunch outside. Elder people like to have their daily walk here. Next to the park is a place for playing with your dogs, a very useful asset if you keep a dog in the center districts of the town.

It is really good to see that the local government also recognizes the importance of this small green patch inside the districts. Every year considerable effort is put into keeping its good condition and new improvements are also implemented from time to time. So it seems, Szent Istvén Park is going to be a good place to rest for a long time.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!
