Early morning shadow

Photo essay: Budapest's City Park

by Jahanshah Javid
There's a woman in the park who's always sitting on a makeshift platform/bed under the same big tree. Her dog is close by (side note: I'm a dog lover. I greet dogs before people. I should have been born a dog! Here in Budapest I haven't encountered one dog that shows affection towards anyone but the owner. I've never seen dogs this cold in any other country. It's the oddest thing.) I've seen the woman so many times I figure she lives there. Homeless but not your typical type, whatever that is. I've always seen her from a distance, like 50 feet or so. Her posture and set up is kinda graceful. I see her reading a lot. Anyway, I've always wanted to take a picture of her and today could have been the day. But I got distracted :)

run for the shadows...

Bowie's playing my ears... the effects definitely work, don't you quit your fun experiments. 14, 15 and 19 are especially creepy, thus my favorites.  Waiting to see the lady in the park too, one of these days.
