Photographer's Note

“A for Athens” is the name of the bar which offers this view from its rooftop terrace. We stopped there to enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice and the view of course. It is one of the best viewpoints in town, you see here the Acropolis Hill with one of the most popular squares in town, Monastiraki. It is exactly north of Acropolis so I think the best light would be there in the evening. I was there shortly after noon, so the light was a bit harsh. When we were sitting at the table, suddenly we felt something strange as if we were sitting on a swing, the floor was moving back and forth for few moments. We first thought that this was due to the underground station, but the feeling was quite intense. A moment later we heard the news about the 6.7 earthquake near the Samos Island.
