Photo of the Day - 19.04.14 - Guarding the Hungarian Parliament

Photo of the Day

During my trip to Budapest I took a variety of photos, some of my favourite were of the Hungarian guards stood resolute outside important buildings including the Royal Palace and Parliament. These guards wore striking brown uniforms with silver and red trim - As different again from the royal guards I am accustomed to in England in their bright red attire and bearskin hats.

This particular photo was taken outside the Hungarian Parliament building - There were two guards stood either side of a flagpole in the square adjourning the parliament. I admired how professional they were, and how seriously they took their jobs - It cannot be easy to stand stock still while crowd after crowd of tourists stare at you, take your photo, and do stupid poses next to you (I was guilty on all three charges), all while maintaining an air of dignity and aloofness.

I like the angle of this photo, the position of the guard against the backdrop of the Nepraji Museum, and the great posture and seriousness he is showing.
