Budapest and Croatia, B&W

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Fine b&w photos of interesting places! The perspectives add interest and impact. I'm glad that you found a way to post them and look forward to the digitals.

Thanks for the comments! Photobucket is back on, and a slideshow selected from the film rolls should now be available in this link.

The dome is described in tourist brochures as a "defensive structure". Locals call it "the Pile". All around the dome there is a fountain, with water flowing from faucets all the time. Water is cool and drinkable, so in 31 C weather people refill their water bottles and sit around after negotiating the stairs. All of Dubrovnik is stairs, many "streets" in the map are actually stairs. Good exercise.

I have not watched Game of Thrones but my kids tell me that several parts of Dubrovnik old city were featured in the series.

The two film cameras did their job well. Nothing beats a XA for travel, and the lens in the Super-Isolette is superb. I had thought of bringing a SLR with 24mm or shorter, but after all it is travel with the family, not an assignment. This area would deserve the full Nikon set, a good TLR and tripods; but then I would have needed an assistant and much more time than we had, not to speak of 20+ less years of age. However I did see several dedicated amateurs (or maybe they were pros) setting up their tripods and equipment, looking for the best composition or angle, and generally behaving like photographers.

I saw some film being used as well. A few people with Prakticas around, even one with a Fed 3. In the digital side, quite a few with mirrorless high-end digital cameras, and some DSLRs, almost no P&S. The crowd - selfies with their cell phones.

Got to a good photo store in Budapest and brought home some TMX in 120 as a souvenir.

Not too much trouble with X-ray machines, which are much discussed in forums. My film went through at least 8 machines for hand lugagge and came out OK.

Yeah, it took a few seconds for that one to sink in for me too. Very nice!

Nice series of pictures, Julio. I also had trouble linking to pictures on Photobucket and needed to upload them to Flickr, and that was not the first time. I think I will forget about Photobucket altogether.
