Photographer's Note

Having set an appointment at Monastiraki Square and arrived earlier hoping to take some photos, I had been exploring the ever flowing human activity and going after people's shadows, surveying the fruit stalls and looking for my friend. After a while decided to leave my strategic post and move behind the fruit stall to the right of the metro station, to get a more complicated view of the square. It was hard to manage the traffic and the lighting contrasts, to focus on a coherent composition, so I decided to return to the lit area.

Before leaving, I threw a glance to my left and found this scene. I thought the likeness of the real lady to the poster lady was striking and took a couple of pictures without getting noticed, which I feared, as I had the strong feeling of being an intruder.

Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all
