Photographer's Note

Just an ordinary street scene in the theatre district of Budapest one afternoon. This shot could never have been taken while I lived in Hungary--of course such a washing machine never existed under "communism", and even a low-quality one (never a dryer) was the luxury item of a select few, as many other objects... but then again, there was perhaps, on the other hand, a heightened sense of conviviality with one's neighbours and friends stoically enduring or satirizing the regime that was to finally exhale its final breath in 1989.

This wasn't a hip shot; I was sitting with a friend on the terrace of a cafe when we spotted the workers, thus having the advantage of the low point of view. Fortunately, the waitress was just standing there, so I clicked fast while she was observing the delivery.

Original colour version is in the WS.
