    Some communist chandeliers at the National Palace of Culture, Sofia...
    ...which looks like this from the outside...



    And nearby, possibly the ugliest momument ever built...



    And yes - it is finished - it is supposed to look like that !
    Apparently, it's not popular with the locals

    Nothing much remarkable about this one but a funny conversation ensued. You will note that there is some form of muesli-knitter in an orange turban cycling towards the camera with a child on her bicyle. She stopped to ask me what I was taking a photo of, clearly as an opening so that she could then get into an awkward discussion about taking her photograph etc (not uncommon here). "Well, I'm quite amused by the toilet brush hanging on that lamp-post over there" - this had the desired effect of comprehensively pissing on her bonfire and she pedalled off noticeably deflated.

    My youngest enjoying the warm weather, bursting giant bubbles in a Budapest park. An element of luck with the timing, I admit.

    Well, it looks random at first glance, but I wonder if it was just a straightforward portrait shoot, and the man behind the camera was taken with a bad attack of flatulence?

    Thanks Bob,

    I didn't see any notices regarding photos and No one stopped me. No ninja antics though - Just placed the camera on the ground lens up and tried to stay out of shot.
