Pihe’s Budapest

Today I have a special guest again. Enjoy Pihe‘s wonderful photo and I warmly recommend you to visit his Flickr photostream. It is worth!

where the snail lives

For the record: this is the “staff-only” staircase of the Museum of Etnology in Budapest. I’ve been there on a training during the closing hours and I fell behind to take this shot — it was quite adventurous, for the guard spotted me on the other floor while I was balancing on the bar to get the composition — I’ve been asked what I’m doing there with a camera in my hands… It wasn’t that usual “nice” situation.

Have a look at my previous guest-photos:

    Photographing a spiral staircase is a challenge, but they are so very beautiful. For another, click
    here. It’ll be interesting to see if this works for me since I’ve not been very successful with links in the past.

    Wow! It worked! I guess the space in blogger’s comment box just isn’t large enough because it NEVER works for me on those.

    I will add your photo to my list of photos taken using a dangerous technique … I was taking photos after hours in a business park last night. The whole time I was concerned that a security guard would accost me.
