Beggar

This photo has haunted me ever since I took it in 2015 while in Budapest, Hungary.  Our traveling group for the day had gathered in a large open area before heading into a nearby cathedral.  Out of no where this woman in old dirty clothing appeared beside me.  She never spoke,  just passed by searching the crowd with sad dark eyes, hoping for a coin or two to be dropped into an old tin cup.   As she turned away I snapped one shot of her bent over using a cane to help steady her every step.  The modern drainage system and her cane are the only signs that this photo wasn’t taken years ago.

Culture

This weeks theme for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Challenge is Culture.  Hungarians use lots of Paprika in their cooking.  Its hard to miss a display of it canned while wandering in and out of the many little gift shops.  You can find Leanne’s blog at  http://www.leannecole.com.au
