KesterTester05 - Where is this Budapest Scene?

Updated: Sep 12, 2020

Following last week's KT04 - which proved easier than I ever imagined - we have something a bit more challenging, I hope, this week.

This piccie was taken one morning in October, 1989.

You certainly can't take it today - the red star has gone, of course - but I think you might still be able to get it, just not sure if a certain building has expanded its reach to prevent the public gaining access to the spot I took this from. (There's a clue there.)

You'd also have to use the right lens. I believe it was on a 500mm mirror, but might have been less.

So, where was it, and what is the image in the foreground? (I know it's out of focus, so sorry about that :) )

As for KT04 - three people wrote in within an hour of publication with the right answer - each saying they didn't want to post what it was so as not to spoil the competition so soon. Sorry, I forget who you were!

Yes, despite my use of a very wide-angle lens - 19mm I think - you can still make out the Chain Bridge, tiny though it appears. The shot was taken from inside the Gresham Palace, long before it was converted into a hotel when it was still in use as regular housing stock. This was probably about 1993 or so, one Saturday afternoon, IIRC.

Would this be the dome of the Hungarian Parliament building, once upon a time?

Sorry the comment ended up on KT05 instead of KT03. The shadows could be the cables holding the trolleybus power supply system in place at the Kiraly u Nagymezo u intersection.

or the wires of the trolleybus? More exactly the cables holding the power supply system in place at the intersection Kiraly u / Nagymezo u.
