Photographer's Note

Dear white brother
When I was born,I was black,
when I grew up,I was black,
when I am in the sun, I am black,
when I am ill, I am black,
when I die, I shall be black,

Whereas you, white man,
when you were born, you were pink,
when you grew up, you were white,
when you are cold, you are blue,
when you are frightened, you are green,
when you are ill, you are yellow,
when you die, you will be grey.

So, of the two of us,
Which one is the man of colour?

- African oral tradition

Taken in one of the corners of touristy and colourful Plaka. Quite an ordinary scene actually: you can get some music for free, a CD for 10 euros or less, and for a few coins a smile...or two :)
