The first thing every tourist does, after they check into their hotels that is, is to go to the Acropolis of Athens.

The photos I have posted on these pages were all take by me on January 20th, 2006.

No matter what season, be it summer, fall, spring or winter, the light on the marble will never cease to amaze.

The sun was shining amid the white clouds; the wind was blowing briskly and the people were few enough to get clear and uncluttered shots.

I am especially fond of the sharp angles and the perspectives shot from under the columns. You can clearly see the black residue from the pollution emitted by the cars collecting under the marble structure.

Much restoration has been completed on the Acropolis in the last 25 years and continues to progress. Eventhough I hadn't been to the top of this ancient monument in over four years, I was amazed and astounded at how captivating it feels to stand on this so famous spot. The mind is boggled at the thought of just how this was built...details that I will try to fill in on other spaces on further pages....

keep checking back as these pages are in progress, just as the restoration of the Acropolis...

Address: Right in the Middle of Athens!
Directions: You can't miss it!
