I loved this view of the Manhattan Bridge
(looking past Dumbo from the Brooklyn Bridge),
before the East River fog had lifted.

. . . which means "to our health!" in Hungarian.
This glass of rosé was enjoyed at the Ari Kupsus
Gallery, in Budapest, where I bought a (very) small
painting by my favorite Hungarian artist,
Maté Orr, a lovely and very talented young man.
(I was introduced to Maté by my wonderful
new friends, Jane and Lance Hattatt, who
featured him on their own blog.)

I dug deep into the archives for this shot of the Parthenon
(I took it 26 years ago, with Kodachrome—remember that?).
As I recall, we weren't allowed to get much closer than this.
Even so, I was lucky to capture it without any people in the frame.
Or maybe everyone else was smart enough not to be out
in the blazing sun, on a treeless Greek hill, in July, at noon.

|That's Hungarian for "simple garden"—though there's |
really nothing simple about this funky place,
which was the first of Budapest's ruin pubs.
In 2012, Szimpla Kért was voted the 3rd-best bar
in the world on the Lonely Planet website (1st place went
to A38, a floating bar that's also in Budapest).

Day before yesterday, I showed you a building on
boulevard Saint-Germain. Well, this place is right
next door—but they've injected a bit of color.

Haven't been able to get out of town lately,
so I've been doing my "leaf-peeping" on the way
to work, within sight of some spectacular buildings.

The trees cast dappled shadows across
the façade of this elegant building
on boulevard Saint-Germain.
