St Rókus Chapel, Budapest, VIII.th district
This chapel has a very long history. Even in the IV.th century stood a cemetery-chapel here. After 1945 when the church was hit by a bomb (the tower had to be reconstructed) the archeologists found rests of this so called Cella Trichora, say early christian chapel. After the destruction of this ancient chapel, in the XI.th century the inhabitants of that period built another one of wich only the founds remained. When, in 1711 the plague slaughtered the biggest part of the population in Pest, in 1711 they rebuilt this chapel in baroque style wich was modified in 1741 as a thanksgiving: in fact, the new pestilence, in 1739-1740 didn`t hit Pest-Buda.

Nice postcard and a good note. I like the sunlight over the old walls and the calm atmosphere from the streets. Good capture.

A fine composition of this interesting chapel nicely framed by the monumental column, whose height we can guess by the lady walking past. Good colours and sharpness.

bel taglio verticale che mette in ottima vista la chiesa e la colonna accanto.
Ottima luce e bella resa cromatica.
La donna che cammina in FG, dà un senso di movimento alla scena.

Anche le grandi città hanno degli scorci accattivanti .
Un centro storico ricco di storia e senza traffico d'auto .
L'orologio fa le 16,55....forse una domenica o un giorno di festa ?

quand on ces trois couleurs, rouge, bleu et vert bien représentés dans une photo, le résultat est souvent plaisant sur le plan de couleurs.
Un cadrage dans un format vertical bien étudié pour mettre en valeur cet édifice sans oublier ce qui l'entoure.
