Photographer's Note

Photograph of the Szechenyi Baths complex in City Park, Budapest (behind Hero's Square).

The baths are one of the oldest and most famous spas in Budapest, and the water is geothermically heated and said to possess healing properties.

The baths complex is huge and is frequented not only by tourists like myself, but also by many people of Budapest who come here for treatment of various ailments.

This photograph was taken in late afternoon, just prior to a heavy rainstorm. There is something strangely relaxing about being sat outside in the warm colourful surroundings, with it raining all around you!

Cropped, resized, sharpened, increased contrast.
