Look Up!

Lantern and Ceiling, Great Market Hall, Budapest, Hungary

When entering the Great Market Hall in Budapest, visitors are invited to explore 
three floors of stalls selling a variety of goods... meats, pastries, caviar, deep-fried treats called langos, fish, garlic, cucumber pickles, palinka (fruit brandy) and of course hot red paprika.  The bright arrays of treats may delight the eyes, but one must look up to discover this invitingly warm and ornate ceiling. This month the market will specialize in foods from Thailand as part of its National Gastro Days program.

  3. So pleased you looked up Doug. I'm guessing you don't miss much. That photographers eye would find the best perspective at most sites. Love the golden hues and the shadows. Budapest is a wonderful city. Did you have cabbage and beer while you were there?

    Unfortunately, the market was under renovation.
