24 hours is good...you never know when you are going to get an urge...
Ginnie Hart: HA! I colored that one just for you, Ray! grin
...and a 'twenty-four-seven' next door...if the CocaCola afterwards is not enough....
Great shot, love the selective colouring, wonderful greytones.
Yesterday I read it was 37C (98.6F) in Budapest.......
Ginnie Hart: 37C (98.6F)? OMG. We really went at the right time, didn't we! Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA.
Hmmmm. I will have to experiment.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. Let me know how it goes, Michael. I'm chicken. smile
I love it Ginnie smile... things do go better with Coke... but i prefer rum... i like your selective colours....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Some like rum in their coke, Peter, as I'm sure you know. Hmmm. That's an idea. smile Thanks.

The owners would be pleased with your fine advertisement, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe so, Lisl. smile Thanks.
Very nice process Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. Merci.
Apparently!
"Have a Coke and a smile"
Very funny, Ginnie - I love the treatment!
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes you just wonder about these things, Elizabeth. smile Thanks.

Some things are universal Ginnie - and Coke seems to be just one of them
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chris. I'm afraid you're right...about the Coke, that is! smile
And I thought it was those little blue pills Ginnie, off to buy a gallon of coke then.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Good one, Mick. grin

Love it --- coke that is
Ginnie Hart: HA! Of course. smile
I wonder what response you would get if you asked if you could get a big mac?
Ginnie Hart: HA! For sure, Bill. smile

Oh, we are in Hungary, first I thought we are in de Rode Buurt in A'dam - you should have coloured the Union Jack, too, the Britons seem to be welcomed in Budeapest, too.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Philine, I DID color the Union Jacks when I first did this one...and then changed my mind. HA! So glad to see you noticed them. smile

Well spotted and captured. The coke is for when you get too hot from the 24hrs of other activities
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Aussie. smile Thanks.

What sort of things Ginnie? And , more importantly, what sort of coke?
Ginnie Hart: There's a lot of research to be done here, Chad! So many questions; so little time. smile

Oooeeer... walk away quickly. Good to learn that the Hungarian for "sex" is...ummmm.. sex. That could be useful (although unlikley smile )
Ginnie Hart: Some things seem to be used universally, Alan, lest anyone be confused?! (sigh)
What I'd give to see an original Coke bottle again.
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Michael!

Well seen!
Great tags, colors
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Helys. Merci.
That's just a brilliant find Ginnie and I love your processing of the image too.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Sally. Sometimes you just have to take such pictures! smile

I know three things that are called coke ... which one do you mean?

'sex bolt' ... I think I would do just that ... and bolt.

Great shot and all that sort of stuff.
Ginnie Hart: Some things are just too private to answer on the internet, Richard. grin

HA! What an interesting grouping of signs. And - yes - we're dating ourselves when we remember that slogan - smile
Ginnie Hart: Dating ourselves for sure, Marcie. smile Thanks.
Non stop 24, might get a bit monotonous, Ginnie,I like the treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Gotta come up for air at some point. HA! (Did I say that?) Thanks, Frank.
beau travail de noir et couleur faudra que je m'y essaie
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Keyouest. Merci.

Coke sells everything. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Sad but true, Ruth!
I always thought Angels were innocent young persons from a better place, now it seems they are purveyors in the world's oldest professional business. Great bit of colour popping Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: We get our education everywhere we go, Brian! Thanks.
Coke adds life! smile
Ginnie Hart: So they say, Larry. smile
Great shotsmile Greetings
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Zielona.
Do they do haircuts too?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good question, Tom. smile
Certainly!
Sex is as addictive as Coke! wink
Ginnie Hart: And you would know that because....! HA! grin
Great use of selective colouring Ginnie! Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Manuy kind thanks, Richard.

Fantastic strong lines, a very funny shot smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Will. If we can't take a joke, right?! smile

The red sin! Great!
Ginnie Hart: Which one, Oscar? grin
Excellent treatment, as usual. Not sure if those are surveillance cameras or only lights mounted to the building just above the Coke and non-stop signs, Ginnie. Regardless, I might have second thoughts before entering the Angel sex shop.
Ginnie Hart: You have a fine eagle eye, Bevcerly! I never even noticed those cameras. It does make you wonder who would enter...right off one of the main streets of Budapest!

Oh the things your observant eye will notice! wink Clever girl...
Ginnie Hart: Some things are really hard to miss, Sue. smile Thank you.
