This is fabulous!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
oh that would be startling to see three heads poking out thus. great shot. well framed
Ginnie Hart: It does make you stop and take a second look, Ayush. grin Thanks.
Wonderful photo! I always love these! So unusual!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. Can you imagine seeing something like this in one of our major big cities in America??? smile

A fabulous shot, there is so much art in Budapest. I wonder what the creator had in mind with the three torsos and the two bees....
Love the treatment.
Ginnie Hart: One wonders about a lot of things in Budapest, MLMA! smile Hartstikke bedankt.

You are so right -and we can discover the most interesting details - like you did - but you may also know the story about Thales from Milet: "Plato had Socrates relate a story that Thales was so intent upon watching the stars that he failed to watch where he was walking, and fell into a well."
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Philine. One vs. the other never quite works. A healthy balance of both should do the trick. smile

Interesting stuff Ginnie, you would be unlikely to find architecture of this sort in the UK
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris, and exactly. You just never know what you might see in Budapest!
If these sirs remain discreet, the lady of the middle raises a breast which she knows how to put forward. LOL !
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Well said, Marie. grin

They look as if they are going to launch themselves on to you, Ginnie. I try to remember to take your advice and look up more
Ginnie Hart: They did seem a bit ominous at first, Lisl, but then I just smiled. Gotta pay attention to the ground, of course (as Philine pointed out), but it is fun to see what's above in these cities! smile

We're being watched from above.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Rob. Surely more than we realize. smile

Woooooooooow
Great details of architectures
Nice mood in sepia
Ginnie Hart: Some architects have all the fun, Helys! smile Thanks.
Well that's something to get your hands on Ginnie, a quick rub and a polish.
Ginnie Hart: HA! And to think I almost missed it! What luck. smile

Love it! looks like they all decided to push them though a "soft" wall which then turned to stone smile
Ginnie Hart: It does make you wonder what's behind this, Alan! smile
This is amazing smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Hitta, for stopping by and commenting. I checked out your blog and was mind-boggled about the water-splitting for clean energy!
amazing!!
woowww !!

Love you POV...and how these three figures are gazing down at us. Very cool!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie. I'd love to know the back-story behind this, wouldn't you?!

Love the idea of the figures flying out of the building. I dream this dream sometimes.
Ginnie Hart: They're like super heroes, then, Mary! HA! I like that. Thanks.
Talk about looking down on you! Very good, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. Someone has to look down on us to watch over us! smile

Amazing. I love that you look up. smile
Ginnie Hart: Can you imagine seeing something like this in America, Ruth? More people would look up, I'm sure. smile Thanks.

The Watchers of good order
Ginnie Hart: I'd say so, Oscar! smile
That's why I like Budapest!
It's one of the best cities to see the coolest art nouveau! smile
Ginnie Hart: I would have to agree with you, LC! smile
Fabulous image! It almost looks as if you shot this is 3D, Ginnie. I wonder if the interior is as magnificent and intricate in design as these windows and balcony are.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. I'd LOVE to know more about this, inside and out. What a mystery.
I'm more looking behind me, lately, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, there's that, too, Juan Carlos. smile

That is quite amazing
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Aussie. It's definitely not something we see every day!
Quel plaisir de refaire une visite de Budapest! Toujours des instants étonnants
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad I've been able to take you back to that amazing city, Lasiate. Merci.
Quite the strangest thing I've seen all day, indeed it's worth looking up, I must do it more often.
Ginnie Hart: It's quite startling sometimes, Brian. We have to brace ourselves at our age. HA! smile
A city full of surprises Ginnie. Always good to look up isn't it. Great capture
Ginnie Hart: I am still amazed by that city, Janet. YES! Thank you.
Amazing!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Robin, isn't it! smile
those half-statues are remarkable...
Ginnie Hart: Not something we're used to seeing every day, Larry, that's for sure! smile
A delightfully weird detail to start off the week Ginnie. Pure ornamentation or is there a purpose I wonder?
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to see, Bill, but I have no clue whatsoever about what it means or where it comes from. Who knows?!
What a fabulous image Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard. Merci.

What an unusual sight!!
Ginnie Hart: It was, Cherry! Sure would love to know more about it.

(BTW, I wasn't able to open comments for your Jesuit Church, Lucerne post???)

How weird, Ginnie they look like the angels in a Stanley Spencer painting.

Ginnie Hart: Wow. Thanks for the link, Chad. I see the angels, indeed!

Ginnie Hart: Exactly what I did, Rian. Thanks. smile

Une jolie prise ! Bonne journée

Ginnie Hart: It's fun, JP, isn't it! smile
I'm looking up >> at the desk top screen >> Nice catch Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Jacquelyn. Thanks. smile
Build by someone with some artistry and not like the building in cities here.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Michael. No one nowadays would take the time or energy or money to do this. Too bad. sad
Ginnie this is amazing!! I shall walk with my chin held high from now on smile
Ginnie Hart: Well...but don't forget to watch where you're walking, too, Sally! grin Thank you.
