  3. I couldn't work out the sculpture hanging off the side of the concert hall. Then I realised you had captured a pigeon coming in for landing!
    Lots more variety in the buildings here compared with Budapest, good to see you are keeping up with your interest in doors.

  4. A man hole cover? They convey so much when portrayed cleverly.
