Looks like a grand palace. Politicians always seem to have delusions of grandeur smile Your processing makes it look like the frontispiece of an old book.
Ginnie Hart: I have no clue what happens inside such a place, Alan, but the outside sure makes it look worthwhile! Thank you.

Beautiful!Great view
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Leone.
This is probably the second most beautiful parliament building in the world? wink

You have to come to London to see the Mother of all Parliaments. smile
Ginnie Hart: I have been to London, LC, and have seen your Parliament. I think it may run neck-n-neck to this one in Budapest, truth be known. smile But who's comparing?! smile Thanks.
Wow! Some building,Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Frank! And then some. smile
Just like I find churches you find magnificent buildings like this Ginnie, and the boat, in that position is the icing on the cake, as they say!
Ginnie Hart: Like two peas in a pod, Brian! smile Yup. Thanks.
