I dedicate this entry to my friend zaki iskandar (allergyc) for his marvelous pics and story telling covering prague, budapest, vienna, bratislava and frankfurt. He’s the one who teach me motion tweening – fundamental for flash design and some basic photoshop, back in my uni time 🙂 If you plan to visit one of these locations, consider visiting his fps to get tonnes of fresh perspective (or cliche) ideas

Entry 2 : Budapest, honestly this is the best series of 5
Shoe statues @ Riverfront. This world-famous composition, which comprises 60 pairs of metal shoes set in concrete on the Danube embankment, was set up in the year 2005. It commemorates the Hungarian Jewish victims of the killings committed by the Arrow Cross militiamen, the pro-German, anti-Semitic, national socialist party members of Hungary in 1944-1945. The killings usually took place en masse – the victims were lined up at the embankment, and shot into the Danube, execution-style.
The Budapest view from the Citadell & Gellert Hill. Gellért Hill is Budapest’s most centrally located hill, the favourite of visitors, due to the glorious view of the city from the hilltop. It is named after Bishop Gellért, who was killed by rebellious Hungarians in 1046 who opposed Christianity. His statue, facing Elizabeth Bridge, was erected in 1904.
