Walkabout

He may not be the 'Lion in Winter' but does he not look impressive on along a sidewalk in the downtown area of Budapest. Enjoy your week-ends and stay cool.

I love your city!!! I've been there a few years ago; have some pics on my travel blog and still more to come :-)

Thank you for your comment... and yes, I also think playing there might be dangerous, but you can very often see young people enjoying that spot...

Greetings

Hi! Thanks for visiting Belgrade today. Funny, I've been photographing all kinds of facades here recently; some have heads like your lion! Will be posting reasonably soon.

This is a great use of black and white. His head is kingly.

Looks like lions are regular symbols of the country especially with those 2 lion statues guarding the Buda & Pest bridge I have seen many times in your photos.
