I love the way you put the city on the lower margin, and made the sky dominate the picture. Looks like it's the Budapest sky which is predominant here, not Budapest itself. However, I like this, gives a sense of freedom. :)

And this time it was you who got my message, just as I did with your "first person point of view" shot. :D I wanted, in a way, to emphasize that despite all the beauty created by human culture(s), we're just a small fraction of Nature (with a capital N, yes :nod: ), of the world that has been "here" since time immemorial and will remain here and will still be beautiful* when we, humans are long gone - and that that gives us a kind of freedom we really should grow up to appreciate. (Well, put it like that it sounds a bit :yoda:-ish but... umm... that's what I think. :D )

Thank you!

*okay, beauty is in the beholder's eye, and if there's no beholder... but let me just not get lost in that now. :D

oh i'm not a pro photographer either, but i'd like to become one someday. unfortunately that'd require quite a lot of money and even more spare time - and i have none of these now. :no: and yet i hope... :nod:

thanks a lot for the comment, it means a lot for me that it means a lot for you. :)

i can see how this kind of scene inspires your digital arts; the colors and what-not. Just curious, is it ever sunny in Hungary?
Reply
:icongaborcsigas:
gaborcsigas Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005  Professional Interface Designer
:) yes, it's quite often sunny... of course it's relative what you call "sunny". i guess compared to Mexico (that's where you live now, if I'm not mistaken) Hungary is pretty overcast most of the time. but we do see the Sun a lot, and our summers can be pretty hot (for us, at least). Mexico is very sunny, isn't it? Never been there, just have this impression from movies.

:icongreg-and-fake---2015:
i had the same impression :/ and, well, for the most part it is, but it's colder than I thought in the winter...we'll see how summer goes. ah, the weather.. I actually like overcast...I've wanted to visit Seattle in the States for sometime. there it's always grey and rains a lot, but apparently is very beautiful, and has a unique "vibe"... I dunno If i was to pick a favorite, it would still be chicago. you get four seasons. when it's winter, you know it, when it's summer you know it etc.

gaborcsigas Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005  Professional Interface Designer
I guess we're like Chicago then, we get a fair share of every season, even though these days seasons blur into one another... there was a time when i wanted to visit Seattle as well (a bit harder from this side of the world :) ), but that was back in those days when grunge (you know, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and such) was on top... err, i hope that makes sense. i'm too tired to speak proper English :D i hope it doesn't show much. btw, you were born in the US, weren't you?
Reply
:icongreg-and-fake---2015:
yes, i was born in US and yes the grunge attraction makes sense (and your english does, too) the weather probably had a big effect on the music...as I'm sure it does on the culture and all that. well, I should say that Hungary would be a nice place to visit for me, I hear it's a beautiful country (and the women, beautiful, too). I been to Romania once, which is, you know, out there...eastern, though I dunno how similar in weather and geography. .

:icongaborcsigas:
gaborcsigas Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2005  Professional Interface Designer
yep, if you know where to look and where not to look, our country is beautiful, but i guess that's true for most countries of the world. weather-wise and geographically we're quite similar (i think) to Romania, though we don't have such high mountains but have more plains. (Romania and Hungary are neighbour states, by the way, and have - in a _lot_ of local minds at least - a long-lasting grudge about Transylvania, populated mostly by Hungarians but belonging to Romania legally) As for our women, yep, they're beautiful :nod: at least I think so (especially about my :heart: :D ). So I think some day you should pay a visit, yes, especially if you liked your previous journey round here. (When was that, btw? )
Reply
:icongreg-and-fake---2015:
I've heard of a grudge, but didn't know what about. now i know. yeah, I visited there, geez, ten years ago. we spent some time in bucharest and in the mountains near transylvania...so I probably seen some hungarians :)..

:thanks: :) i also like such photos. we're so paradox, human beings and our existence. we're the center of our own worlds, yet we're dwarfed immensely by the outside world, whose events are often dwarfed similarly, in turn, by the events of our inner world... :nod:

Have you read any books by Jostein Gaarder? I don't know if they were translated into Hungarian but they sure are available in English. Well, in one of them (the English title is "The Ringmaster's Daughter") you can read a very interesting sentence. I'll try to do my best to translate it into English:
"[...] long before Armstron took the great step for the humanity, I had been on the moon and I had experienced for the first time how tragicomic all wars and and borders are."

Something like this..
*sigh* Anyway, my point after all this is: we really are small. Our egos are way too big for our possibilities.

I know the name of Gaarder, yes, but nothing more... i've been planning to read "Sophie's world" (a Gaarder-book, isn't it?) for a while...

the quotation and your point is quite true.

and the *sigh* about it (the case of humanity) too.

that's sexcellent :!:.. Definitely at the right place at the right time :) ... i would have maybe cloned out that annoying jet streak tho ... THe bird is sweet tho ..and i'm sure the bird looks better if the res is bigger form the original.

:thanks: umm, i in fact liked both the bird and the jet streak the way they were there: these little "disturbances" in the immensity of the sky make it all the more real in my opinion, for in imperfection there's perfection. :yoda:

thanks again.
