photoblog image Lamps and Roof Repairs
I'd crossed the Chain Bridge to the Buda side of the Danube on day three of my second trip to Budapest this year. I have no idea what this guy was doing on the roof of the fine-looking building just off the bridge, but I couldn't resist stopping and pointing the camera. I liked the ornate lamp as well, so the natural thing to so was get both in the one shot. Another glorious day ((we were blessed with wonderful weather, even though it was mid October).

They 'do that' on the continent don't they? ... Wander around on rooftops I mean! Here there'd be scaffolding and hard hats, and all sorts of gizmos in the name of health and safety, and then probably little or no work carried out!
Doesn't he looks small, tucked away in the background. It's a very clever picture

The person on the roof really adds perspective to this shot!
