Tihany No 4-2 is a people street reportage photo art print by Photographer Paul E Williams. Tihany is village on a high finger of land that juts out into Lake Balaton and is a popular tourist destination.

“”Day Tripper” is a series of street reportage photos that expire people having a day out. I have rarely been a Day Tripper but my photography takes me deep into the heart of Day Tripper territory regularly. My shooting day begins at dawn and the morning session ends about 8.30 am with the arrival of the day trippers. In destinations like Venice they arrive in such numbers that places like St Marks Square fill with thousands of people in under an hour. One of the most ludicrous things about Day Trippers is that in high season so many are drawn to the Iconic tourist places around the world that they usually obscure what they have come to see. There is absolutely no joy in fighting to see the wonders of the world whilst being pushed and shoved by lines of people who seem to be totally disorientated and on the edge of panic incase they loose the group of people they arrived with. In reality most Day Trippers would have more fun in Venice or Paris Las Vagas than they do in the bun fight in Venice Italy or Paris France, but I would have less fun photographing them in Las Vegas. Before the industrial Revolution Day Trips were limited to visits to agricultural fairs and maybe local trips during bank holidays. Day Tripping as we know it today only started when mass transport such as the railways and buses allowed people the opportunity to escape the cities on their day off. Over night stops were only possible for the rich and idle class. The working class had financial and time constraints so day trips were taken on their day off when finances allowed.
