    Hi, your picture are very good. From most of your pictures, it appears that there are no people in Greece. I've found that people like pictures with people. Not my favorite. Keep up the good work. You're a good photographer.

    Some good info here. We met lots of cats at the Asklepion and saw people feeding them and this was many years ago.
