Tribute to Bohumil Hrabal



He is one of my favorite Czech writer. His stories from the old beer factory amazed me very much. In Kőbánya (the district I was born in Budapest) there is an old beer factory, too. As you can see all ruins. But among the ruined walls somehow still I can feel the athmosphere of the world that Hrabal described with such a good talent in his books.



I created a short "movie" about this beer factory. You can see it here.

I don't know the writer either, but the photo is very beautiful. The video and accompanying music was hauting and almost sad.

I agree with Lisi, it must be a grand building in the old days. It's worth capturing. Thanks for sharing it with us :)

This photo, your other blog, and the video - you are a poet and a philosopher, aren't you? I'm going to look for an English translation of this book tomorrow. How absolutely beautiful!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
