The Almost Timely January Random

Well, it must be said, to my defense, that I had all the pictures ready on January 31st. And then I stared at the computer screen for a while and fazed out, because it was Sunday, no, actually, because I tend to do that every now and then.   I also swore this wouldn’t be…

Best of 2015- Coffee Cups

As opposed to cats, coffee took quite a long time to grow on me. When everyone was downing cup after cup during exam sessions, I would put on a refrained smile and keep on reaching for my can of Coke. Mind you, I still love Coke, and it’s one of those things, like Coldplay, that…

Late Autumn Philosophies

A long long time ago (well this is a rather disturbing way to start a sentence, since it kind of implies I am ancient, which, related to the overall age of the universe and such is of course utter nonsense), but, nevertheless, a long long time ago I read one or two novels by Paulo…

Transition Random- from Summer to Autumn

One day I will probably make peace with the fact that I always run out of schedule with the monthly randoms, but until then I can pretend that at least this time I actually meant the stuff to run over two months, and therefore cover the transition from summer to autumn and such. No, of…

Tales from the Seventh Month

  Since July is the seventh month, here’s seven things I learned (well not, not really, I never learn) this month.   1) No matter what I do, I always get delayed with the monthly random, because I am doing random stuff instead. Maybe it will work better in winter, when instead of randomly freezing…

Bits and Pieces of a Budapest Summer

I might have touched upon the lazy co-photographer of the blog previously, although he has somewhat objected to being labelled so, yet is too lazy to protest forcefully. He has however spent some time sorting through his July (and as per our joint observations, late June) shots and here they are in all their splendour….

Belated June Random

I love summer but somehow also feel exhausted by it, by the need to enjoy it while it lasts, which is especially acute in June around the solstice. In English it’s called Midsummer, though technically it’s of course the beginning of summer, but the fact that days start to get shorter after this point always…

May Random #1

The plan was, as always, to post the shots nicely in order as they happened, but then this project, as many others, somehow went up in smoke. So there goes May, with various flowers, books, coffees (yes, I’m predictable like that), lots of architecture porn (time to discover the nooks and crannies of Budapest I…
