About six or seven years ago, while visiting my birth country, Hungary, I started working on a photo thematic. I loved walking on the old streets of the Castle District in Budapest, and I was (and still am) amazed by the gorgeous – mostly antique- door handles many of the doors have there. In addition to finding more ornate and wonderfully unique handles in Budapest, I also captured some in Eger, Kőszeg, and in some other cities. I created some final photos, printed and shared them with a mentor of mine. He wasn’t very impressed… here is one of my old pictures.

Post processing was done in Lightroom and On1 Effects, and I used textures on the images.

All images shot with the Sol 45.
