Photographer's Note

The modern town of Bergama from the Acropolis of Pergamum. I found out something interesting last night about the temple of Zeus here, which used to be used for human sacrifice. It was rumoured to be the throne of Satan. From Wikipedia: "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pergamon_Altar"

This altar was removed by the Germans in 1930 and transferred to the then new Berlin Museum. Hitler came to power shortly after. Coincidence? Anyway, Pergamum was originally a Greek colony and city state. The light wasn't with me here but the composition was too good to ignore imho.
