An unusual picture for me today, I am not particularly fond of a host of processed pictures, but I took this picture of Szent Imre in the small village of Tiszaszentimre against a bright blue sky yesterday afternoon, the light was perfect and everything was perfectly exposed but the bright colours just seemed wrong and it did not work in black and white either. So I figured I would try something a little different and cross process by bringing in a little hint of colour behind an “antique plate” processing technique and whilst it is not a style that I like all that much I think it works really well for this picture.
There must be hundreds of villages in Hungary named after canonised saints, in fact the village we live in is literally named “New Saint George”, Szent Imre was the son of Szent Istvan the first king of the Hungary and legend has it was killed by a wild boar whilst out hunting(Circa 1030)!
And a bonus picture today, I actually prefer structure of the picture to the left but I had to burn out the vignette on the bottom to keep the Szent Imre name visible which I thing messes with the balance
Today was a very good day indeed after a little over three weeks in the “shop” we finally had a call to go and fetch our mopeds, it is great to be back independent and mobile again so we took the trip to Tsizafured and stopped at a couple of places on the way home to say hello to friends. Being British it always feels a little strange to head out in shorts and t-shirts in September with temperatures over 30°C, certainly not a complaint though, it has been a great day!
