Images of important landmarks of the town adorn the walls of this pedestrian way. What a great idea to decorate the space ! :)

You can find small and medium art galleries around town such as the one above. However, I noticed that there are more classical than modern contemporary art on sale.

I have a love / hate relationship with graffiti. More love actually especially when I find something as creative as this.

Autumn colours

Early autumn to me offers some interesting colours and photo opportunities. I definitely prefer it to summer (apart from the change of clothing, that is :)

Csiperó 2008


I was told Csiperó is a type of bird species. Well, am too lazy to verify that ..haha.

Right now, Kecskemét is hosting Csiperó 2008 - 10th Future of Europe International Children and Youth Meeting. Read more about the history of the association here .

Between June 6-13 , 2008 , there are hive of activities and performances by participating countries around the town of Kecskemét. Check out the programmes schedule on the same link given above !

The following are some shots taken during the few times I managed to catch some street shows...


Flags of partipating countries. I do like the added colours to this church. 



Backstage. Look at the different expressions on these faces. Some of them were waiting to perform.


Like those costumes !



More of the same costume ;)



French brass band performing at the pedestrian. They began with tunes from the James Bond series...very cool !


On the other side while the brass band was playing, this non-mechanical rocking "boat" was entertaining those who 're not afraid of motion sickness !



Then this high wheel bicycle rode by...wow ! so many things happening at once !
Hopefully i'll be posting more from this event. Perhaps the laser show and fireworks from the closing ceremony ..they'd be nice :)

Unexpected


Thanks to May / June wedding season, we chanced upon this Roman Catholic church (located at town square) was wide open before a wedding ceremony. I think there are certain hours that allow tourists into this church. Since we haven't had the opportunity to do so yet, it was really a lovely surprise!

Background
The painitng seen in the church span several centuries. The painitng of the high altar was painted by Ferenc József Falkoner in 1793. The frescos of the arches were made my Ignác Roskovics between 1900 and 1903.

Cityscape

You are looking at some of the landmarks of this town, taken on top of a shopping mall.

On a different note, we're moving again. This time to our own little place. Lot of things to organise ! May be some D-I-Y s too. So, this blog may be ignored for sometime depending on the internet reconnection :)
