A Little Village

AnRoalisticBlog top story

I happened to pay a visit to a little village at the river…

Begin.jpg

The local Hungarians who are lucky to live at the north bank of Danube always said: “Visegrad has the castle, but Nagymaros has the view”.  I totally agree with it.

The ferry between Nagymaros and Visegrád, which is in service since May 1890, brought me to the opposite side of Danube. I confess I enjoyed this little river voyage and could not resist making several pictures. The port building – where the restaurant Maros is settled now -was built at the beginning of the 20th century by the shipping company.

A first reference to the village is in a document from the 13th century when the king joined it to Visegrád, one of the royal residential centers of those days. Today Nagymaros with its more than 4 000 inhabitants and its infrastructure functions as a small center of the area between Vac (the next bigger town) and the Slovakian border.

Every village or city has its main square, Nagymaros is of no exception. FŐ TÉR (or main square in English) looks now almost as 150 years ago. The only missing element in its architectural look, as I heard, is the Casino with a restaurant and hotel rooms, which was destroyed in 1944.

I read that the Gothic tower (built in 1509) of the Roman Catholic Church is the only  monument in the Danube bend, which remained from the Middle-Ages. It has its saint who is St Martin, the bishop of Tours (France). He was born in the 4th century in the western part of today’s Hungary and he has been always a very popular saint among Hungarian Catholics. Church is closed, so you may take a look at it only.

At the end of my trip around the village I spotted a charming gallery and cafe where I ordered a cup of aromatic cappuccino. There were not too many people, so I chose the table at the terrace where I could enjoy warm sunny weather. I felt happy while sitting at this home-like cafe sipping my sweet drink.

2018 A New Start

Hello, my dear little Friends,

We have not talked since last year. Wow! How were your Christmas holidays? Did you find many presents under your Christmas tree? I did.

2018 is here, not sure I am ready to it. A new year means a new start to many of us. We hope that new year will be better than the old one. We make new resolutions and set new goals. Right? I have mine as well. I keep bugging you about my book that had to be published last year and volla…it was not. Actually, the largest obstacle was the editing process. You have no idea how difficult it is to find a good editor. Fortunately, I came across kind people who directed me in the right way.  The editing process has been launched. And now I try to sell my photos to gather money to pay my editor. I know that sounds weird, but on the way to my dream I might be a bit reckless…

Briefly, there is a good deal for those who need some greeting cards and do not know how to design them or have no time for it. I make you an attractive offer regarding six beautifully designed birthday cards at cheap price. Take a look:

Love you all,

Autumnal Flashes of Yellow

My dear little Friends,

Days come and go fast, before I knew it, these pictures all I had from October. And yet October was very generous for scenes to admire and to capture. Before having a plunge into the world of still image I have been not enough attentive to unique beauty of Fall season. Nowadays, every picture I made allows me to look at this amazing world with my eyes wide open and my Nikki set to shoot.

Autumn2017-16

 

Photos have a great influence on me. Love to still picture has been genetically coded in my DNA. My grandpa was passionate about photography, he not only made photos, but also photo prints. One of the brightest autumnal flashes of my childhood is the dark room, or better to say, dark kitchen at my aunt’s home where my grandpa and we, his grandchildren, were “washing” photos and then “hanging” them on a usual laundry rope. I think I was a real kid yet. It was so funny to watch images through wet prints drying on this rope…

Well, it’s been a long time. My grandpa is not with us anymore, but I found my way to photography. Nowadays I am learning and try to improve my photos. Recently, I’ve purchased mini-light photo studio for macro photography and downloaded my first “masterpieces” to my shutterstock: https://www.shutterstock.com/g/anrostudio?language=en

I felt the flavor of marketing photography and scenes arrangment. It does not look too simple as I might imagine. However, challenge is accepted, and I have nowhere to retreat, right?

 

Have an inspiring November and many new things to discover!

Love you all,

Yours Photographer

My Stock Photos

Dear Friends,

As you know photography is the best way to show your life at the other end of the world. Through photos we can find out a lot about each other and our lives. Photos can play a key role in building the bridge between two worlds. Moreover, pictures an work wonders when it comes to grabbing attention and boosting engagement. I would like to grab your attention to my stock photography profile at shutterstock:

https://www.shutterstock.com/g/anrostudio?language=en

There are about 90 photos of high quality (website managers check every photo) made  by me at different occasions and various times of the year. Do not forget that my every photo is made with love to life seen through my lenses.

When you launch a travel blog or a website, you need a breathtaking photo to capture the attention of your future followers. Psychologist Jerome Bruner has found that while people only remember 10% of things they hear and 20% of what they read, around 80% of people remember things they see or do.

Transit Zone

 

Autumn-19

THEY have not SEEN each other for more than nine months. She left for the other continent last year. It happened three months before they firstly saw each other after a one year emailing. She could not miss the chance of her life – she headed for her dream come true. Their love seed has been already planted, they were unaware of it though. Months of web messages and no live chatting scared their longing souls who were left alone in the ocean of every day routine. Each one kept the non-lit love flame deep inside. And today finally she landed on his continent on the way home. Eleven hours between flights turned his weekend laundry time topsy-turvy – he needed to see her, he could not let this idea go. A million typical romantic airport scenes played out in his head. He was starving to hear her voice, and to see her blue eyes. The missing emptiness honeycombed his broken heart – he was feverish. The same hotel rooms were his only shelter from loneliness. An unknown feeling settled in his wounded heart, he did not give it a name, neither a meaning yet. There was no time to sort him out – life and work sucked up almost all his energy. However, today everything was different. A man of action after a lot of sleeping awoke in him. The last day of June presented him a date with that lovely girl who was sitting and waiting for him in the transit zone.

A cute blonde with misty light blue eyes could not believe she would see HIM today. That was a spontaneous gesture of him, which might mean something, yet she did not dare to wish more. He outsmarted to police, his administrative experience came in handy. For the first time in his entire life he left himself as a hero – a knight in his shiny armors. Girls do love fairy tales and always fall in love with that handsome knight who is ready for any deed. His imagination directed the best film scenes and then….time stood still, his hazel eyes were laid on her. For some endless moment silence in the air was so thick that they could hear only the beats of their hearts.

Not mine, but based on true facts, story!

Love and be loved, and stay away of transit zones!
