WPC – Transition at the Border of Austria and Hungary

Border-of-Austria-and-Hungary

This week’s photo challenge is talking about transition.  At first, my mind wandered towards my photos of autumn leaves and the first buds of spring, but what really resonated with me was the idea of transitioning between one place and next.  Coming from a country with strict border controls, one of my favorite places to transition between places was in rural Austria, where you can ride your bike or go for a leisurely stroll down country roads, through fields of sunflowers, and right into Hungary!  This is one of those border crossings back in 2012; I don’t know if it has been affected by the recent influx of refugees or acts of terrorism, but it breaks my heart to think that free travel throughout much of Europe, like the border of Austria and Hungary, may be at risk today.
