Photographer's Note

As a kind of answer to Gert's question under my previous photo I quote Attila József, one of the greatest Hungarian poets of the 20th Century:

'I want to work. For it is battle enough
Having a past such as this to confess.
In the Danube's waves past, present and future
Are all-embracing in a soft caress.
The great battle which our ancestors once fought
Resolves into peace through the memories,
And to settle at last our communal affairs
Remains our task and none too small it is.'

Attila József: By the Danube. - Translation: Attila József: Poems (ed. Thomas Kabdebo). Find the whole poem here: https://www.mathstat.dal.ca/~lukacs/ja/poems2/jozsef-eng.htm#16

The statue of Attila József sitting at the bank of the Danube river and thinking about the small and big things of life. In the bg you can see the Reformed Church at the Szilágyi Dezső sq. In the far bg. (blurred) you can see the Buda Castle with the Mathias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion.
