Photographer's Note

This photo was taken on a winter afternoon in Athens, somewhere in the district of Plaka. There were two ladies talking at the doorway of the shop and I thought they made an interesting scene, so I stopped at the pavement across the street to have a look and photograph them. They saw me and one of them called in English: "Lady, 5 euros for a photo!" We all laughed and they went back to their conversation.

They were conscious of my camera by now and I didn't want to just stand across the street being annoying. As I realized that my friends had already been out of sight and turned to go, I saw this surrealistic scene by the shop's doorway. I took the picture, waved goodbye and hurried away. It would be impossible for me to elaborate on this scene in words, I wouldn't know where to start and what to make of it...

Thank you for visiting
