Athens

The Greek capital of Athens. I haven't been there for 25 years...and the last trip was not the happiest event - girlfriend woes.. it's a long story.. suffice it to say I hadn't really had much to remember the city by except a sense of loss. So, when a colleague of mine in the Meet Up group Simple Street Photography suggest we host a trip to Athens as something different for the group I was pretty keen to go and rediscover the place.
 

It was a joyful experience! Not only were my travelling companions (some 16 people) great company but the city itself was so alive with energy..art..colour and life! So welcoming.. so easy to move through and we rarely experienced any form of camera shyness from those we chose to photograph. On just one instance - someone made a fuss at what he thought was a surreptitious portrait being taken (this was in fact an error on his part as no photograph had been made)... but otherwise on many occaisions people welcomed the attention...I took one small camera - the Fuji X100s as I knew I would spend most of my time looking out for my half of the group- and whilst I was not an "official guide" I was responsible for everyone being taken care of..looked after, not left behind. I'm pleased with these few images..taken whilst 'on duty' they express the colour I am interested in showing at present..
