An Evening Walk in Budapest

With my family away in Croatia on a vacation and me stuck in Budapest for work, I decided after dinner to take an evening stroll with my camera.

 It was a lovely evening with a nice moon and lots of people walking near the Danube.

After crossing the Danube, I noticed an absolutely stunning young Italian woman walking along the river with two of her friends. I stopped to take the picture above, and she stopped to take the same shot. As she walked by me, she looked me right in the eyes and gave me an amazing smile. I've been happily married for 18 years, so it's a rare thing for any woman other than my beautiful wife to smile at me, let alone one who kinda, sorta looked like this...
Needless to say it made my week!
So I had a very nice evening. How have you all been doing?


  1. I know what you mean. Once in a while a young woman who could probably be my daughter will smile and almost flirt with me at the gym, and yeah, it's awesome.
    Your photos are really impressive, Ted.

  2. It's a rarity, Alex, which is what makes it special, especially to a middle-aged guy like me!

  3. Looks like a great place to take a stroll. If I lived in the city I would walk all the time.

  4. What a beautiful night. Lucky you.

    And if I could get a young guy to smile at me like that, well...I would be in heaven for about a year. lol

  5. I can't imagine living around so much beauty.

  6. You could sell those pictures as post cards. They are beautiful.

    Always nice to be noticed by the opposite sex at any age :)


  7. Well, Ted, middle aged women feel exactly the same way! If you got and someone notices - hurrah!

  8. Sorry, should have read: if you got it!

  9. These are really great pictures!
