Memento Park: Budapest's Communist-era Monuments (a collaborative effort)

My friend William Barletta, whose excellent galleries are at http://www.pbase.com/wabarletta thought that my images for Budapest's Memento Park, which showcases Hungary's communist-era monumental sculpture, would be perfect subjects for black and white. I must admit they do give the park an entirely different look, perhaps more appropriate for the dark years that Hungary suffered under Soviet rule. My color gallery http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/statue_park has more detailed explanations about the various monuments in the park.

Many thanks to William for his time and effort in converting some of my images into B&W.
