Liberty Bridge., originally uploaded by Kari_Marie. This isn’t my Day 32 post, by the way. I’m working on that. This is just a lovely shot of the Liberty Bridge and the Danube River, with the Gellert Hotel in the background. It was a lovely evening yesterday. :-)
Let me preface this post by saying that I don’t expect everyone to have a huge level of technical expertise when it comes to photography. I really don’t. Honest.
