My partner said that I've portrayed Szentes as a under developed village due to my frequent postings of "ruins" :p, such as the structure shown above.

Have to admit I am particularly fond of older and one of its kind (in the town) structures. This one, for example appears to function as a house. Imagine having such a facade and dome for your home! If only i have the chance to view the can I not post it here?

So, let me ask you dear regulars visitors, what's your impression of Szentes through this blog?

Hey. your blog is very interesting! can we link our blogs? please write back in my blog "everyday glamour" ( theres a shoutbox)
This would be nice!

Kris said...

hello chililady,

Hi, The best about this one is how the image fades into the past. TV antenna on the roof or not, you can almost expect to see someone leaving the building in a top hat the next minute.

My sense is that you have no intent to portray the town in any particular light. What you share here is a collection of Szentes images you found intriguing, and that's it... Excellent job.

You've made it such an interesting journey. Any city in Europe will always have the old and the new, all equally as beautiful. But it's what an inhabitant finds interesting enough to share is what makes our daily journey so much better. I agree with Istvan. Better yet for me is the fact you're Malaysian. Bes gila Kris!

You portray Szentes as a town full of interest. It is a personal view and you do not express an opinion, but show us many things.

Let the tourist board worry about "image"!

Kate said...

I keep coming back precisely because of your photographic skill and the subjects you choose to photograph. You have given us a little peek into the city, and you have done a great job.

Very interesting comments and your photograph today is very good. I like what you did to it.

I disagree with your partner. I think you've done a good job of protraying your city. I like seeing the charming old buildings and we've seen some green posts too recently. It looks lovely. Keep up the good work!

Oh Kris,
I have never thought, what impression you or anyone is giving about our cities!
I always admire your photographs as pictures, which have been so good ones.
We can see from web cameras or photographs of tourist guides those nice photos of every town, we have Google and Internet for that!!
Say your partner:" Don`t worry!"

d'abord belle désaturation partielle, j'aime beaucoup ce type de traitement. je trouve que tu donnes une belle image de ta ville, une ville avec une histoire.

initially beautiful partial desaturation, I like much this type of treatment. I find that you give a beautiful indication of your city, a city with a history.

Love the B/W treatment....pronounced the window and wall details.

a quaint little town that cares for its culture and values its history

Chris & Deb said...

I love how you've treated this photo. The b&w is perfect, and the splash of color adds interest.
very well done!

james said...

this is the most beautiful type of post though!
sorry to hear about your pc, hope nothing was lost.

Sally said...

I come back regularly because your posts are so varied - from ultra modern cafe to historical interest and peaceful and quiet landscapes. Keep it up!

welcome New Orleans!

everything was intact, thankfully :)

truth is i keep doing it despite his "protest", of course most parts he is joking!

that's my replied to him exactly!

memang gila sikit, I! :D

you're so good with your interpretation! thanks!
hey, why not start a DP for your city?

Thank you all for your feedbacks, i truly appreciate it!

Carraol said...

Beautiful composition and the use of the B&W. The impression is about the way you see this town, an artistic point of view. I think that your creative skill could make a great shot of a simple leaf on the sidewalk of any city. Cheers. (Sorry for the grammar)

maiylah said...

is that a ruin?!!
if it is, it is a gorgeous one! :)

i guess i can consider myself as a sort of regular visitor ... hehehe. never thought of Szentes as underdeveloped ... more of a quaint/charming place to live. :)

What a nice looking building.

Kris said...

he is just generalising and teasing :D

thank you all again!

The your is another link I set on my blog at "D.P. sites personal selection" time ago. I love your photos because are often unusual. Please, don't change anything. Szentes viewed by your eyes is impressive and great.

Ditto to all the comments above. I love your photos. This one is so pretty, and I, too, would love to see the inside. I also love your traffic mirror self image, and all your others, for that matter. Keep up the great work!
