Photographer's Note

I had met a close friend after many months at Monastiraki Square, downtown Athens. I had been already holding my camera and, as we walked through the district of Plaka, on our way to a restaurant, I kept stopping abruptly to capture a scene or kindly asking my friend to hang on a bit, when it was a scenery that had attracted my attention. At the same time we were sharing news and asking questions about the long period we hadn't seen each other. I kept excusing myself for photographing as we spoke and after about 15 minutes I thought that my friend must have had enough of this.

I switched off my camera and just then my friend said "Look!". I looked up and took this picture as fast as my camera was on again. Only later I realized that the road at this part looked like a racing track:) I liked the smiles very much and wish them all the best, in spite of the very difficult conditions and prospects our country has in store nowadays.
Only a few seconds later they were all walking as a group towards the background and we turned into another side street.

Thank you for visiting
