yeah, its pretty easy to see why you'd want to take the bus up here for the views.
and its always funny to see the classic white architecture of greece, there's just something so photogenic about it.
beautiful views, good on ya to get up here.

interesting to see the mix of old and new, especially with the cranes too.
Athens is such a large city, i'm not sure what to visit, I feel a bit overwhelmed. perhaps i'll see this place, who knows.
good to see the people in the scene for additional interest, nice one.
see you around

haha...i know this place well, and i have a very similar photo - perhaps I should post it as well :)
this place is so magical isn't it. Too bad we couldn't spend even more time on the Island. Makes me wonder if local people take it for granted or not.
excellent viewpoint, one of the best on the island.
gotta love the clouds too, you had a nice day for taking photos. I bet you went to visit the 15 Moai just down the road didn't you! haha

Hi Jean Claude
too bad this photo isnt getting the attention it deserves!
What a beauty!!
The paint job and lines really are eye catching arent they!!!
Love how you squeezed in the plate at the bottom too.
cool presentation with excellent perspective lines.

haha...sweet! Great to see others posting car shots from Havana too :)
We should start up a theme together :)
And yes, having just recently visited here, i can easily recall the smell and color of these exhaust fumes you mention.
Love the crop you chose, as it relates to the squeezing-in aspect of the note.
funny, yet still being effectively creative.

you chose such an excellent time of day to capture this one!!
The light is bright and warm, yet not overpowering.
love the way the scene seems to climb naturally too.
charm from top to bottom.
enjoy your weekend.

i will never pass up the opportunity on a car photo ;)
This may not be a old car, but the overall desired look you wanted works so well.
the grill and chrome contrasts the vivid blues very well.
And it was the composition that caught my eye in the first place, well chosen and well executed.
Tell Malgo we said Hi by Noel_Byrne (16271)

you know what i find most amusing about this scene......if you look very carefully you'll notice in the bg that thse 4 men chose a spot directly outside of a bank!!!!!!!!!!!
Now thats a great location! If people dont have change ON them, perhaps these chaps thought they could just slip into the bank and come back to put money into their collection bucket :)
It must be a tiny amount of money they collect, since it would have to be divided 4 ways! Everytime i see these street performers, it makes me wonder just how much cash they DO earn in a day.
Fun photo, i'm sure Malgo will get a kick out of it too.

lots of history here, an interesting read for sure. I think its a good thing that we dont allow beheading anymore though :)
I can appreciate the difficult circumstances you encountered when photographing this subject...maybe thats why you transfered it to monochrome?
It worked out well though, i reall like the light striking the ground in the middle, and the black surrounding it.
excellent subject and post for TE.

so interesting to see the monestary so isolated like this, or at least it appears to be that way.
Very dry and arrid landscape, thanks for this post.
