Despite this being a bachelor party / stag do, I had nonetheless brought some minimal camera gear along; my DSLR, one lens and a GorillaPod.
As seems to be the way with a lot of my photos, I had been up until the small hours of the morning, taken a nap for about an hour and then arisen at 03:30 for sunrise.
I grabbed a taxi down to Batthyány tér which, due to my basic Hungarian, I was able to pronounce. The taxi driver asked me which hotel I would like left at. I then told him I just wanted left at Batthyány tér metro station. He replied saying that the metro station was closed and where did I actually want left. After a few minutes of discussion he agreed to leave me outside the station, even though he thought it was a very strange request.
Once down there, I set up my Gorillapod on the edge of the Danube and waited for the sun. Sadly there were no clouds until about half an hour after the sun came up. To make up for the incredibly dull sky, I decided I’d try out some texture work; something I never really do. I know it’s not for everyone, but let me know what you think.
