Budapest in Yellow

For someone as snap-happy as me,  
4 days + 3 nights in Budapest = more than 600 photos.

Sorting through all the pictures I took is a bit overwhelming to say the least.  
Should I organize them according to day one, day two, etc?  
Or by location?  
Maybe grouping them by theme (the Danube, the churches, the pastries!) is a better idea.  
Hmm, hmm, hmm...

(& yes, I am a Virgo, if you were wondering...)

So you can imagine my relief when I noticed 
that a lot of my photos from our long-weekend trip had something in common: 
the colour yellow. 

I decided to borrow a concept from one of my very favourite blogs,  
little brown pen, which features absolutely gorgeous photos & "colour collections" such as 

 Best.  Idea.  Ever.

I threw a few of my best yellow-ish shots together
& presto!
A blog post was born.

And you know what?

Yellow has never been one of my favourite colours, 
but I think Budapest may have helped to change my mind. 

phone booth & autumn leaves = double yellow
one of Budapest's lovely old trams
cute cafe (which may or may not be named after my sister)
this gentleman was out walking his three funny dogs
the subway (isn't the station gorgeous?)

P.S. This post has been brought to you by the word "sárga".
I'll bet you can probably guess what that means in Hungarian!


  1. I love that little street, and the subway station is just gorgeous!

    I enjoy yellow. Unless it's the mustard yellow of my 1970s tub, toilet and sink. Then I'm not a fan!

  2. c'est vrai il y a beaucoup de jaune c'est joli !

  3. First off can I just apologise as I posted here some time ago and said that I looked forward to getting to know you in future posts and I added you to my google reader which has since then continued to say 0 posts. Then when you kindly commented on my blog yesterday I followed your link and came across a whole host of posts I hadn't read - further investigation and your blog is featured twice in my reader! I am yet to master the art of Google Reader Management!

    Anyway, I will now hope to follow you more regularly and I have to agree with Erin over liking this shade of yellow. I totally agree with you too about loving Little Brown Pen.

  4. As always, great photos, Emily! Budapest must be a gorgeous city and you must have had wonderful weather - all that blue blue sky.
