  • Europe Trip Day 13: Budapest by night

    Posted on July 21st, 2006 Jeff Keller 3 comments

    After a long wait in the Rome Airport, I made it to Budapest last night. The
    city is big, beautiful, and HOT. Right about now I could use a trip to the
    Swiss Alps!

    I’ve got two sets of photos from my first 24 hours here. This entry has the
    night photos from last night.

    Now we’re up in the Castle area


    Matthias Church


    Nice view of Parliament building


    Looking toward Chain Bridge


    My friend Tibor says the President lives here


    Here is the castle itself


    The Chain Bridge and Parliament from another angle


    My night photos end with a look at the National Theater and the Palace of Art

    For what it’s worth, I didn’t use a tripod for any of these.

    • Jeff,
      That’s EXACTLY the information I was looking for on the Canon 17-85 IS lens. I’m sold.

    • you should go to best countrie in europe
      SPAIN!

    • yeah…. I agree with Maria, we have lots of things to show you in Spain, but I’m glad your having a nice time in our old continent :-).
      The IS in the Canon lens is pretty amazing… (but I imagine it’s also a very fast lens (maybe f2.8) and a DSLR at ISO1600 is quite usable, specially when you downsize your pictures for web purposes).
      In five days I’ll be in Disneyland Resort Paris… I still feel envy of your great trip Jeff (sane envy of course :-P), but a little bit less now that I’m heading to my vacation.
      Enjoy as much as you can Jeff!
