Hi Ourania
I have to be honest, and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings who may live in Greece. When i recently visited Athens a couple years ago, i was quite surprised to see how grungy and dirty the city is. I guess I wasn't expecting the city to look that way. What I see in your photo, with alot of graffiti on the walls, is exactly how I remember the city. Other than the major tourist sites, I didn't think there was much to enjoy in Athens, sorry to say that, but then again, its hard to judge any city when you're there for only 4 or 5 days.

Your photo depicts a true reality in my mind of the inner workings of the city. thanks for this one

Default To holmertz: Re-

Dear Gert,

If I ever want to forfeit my honour, I won't do it for a picture! For a few million Euros...well (at least) I would consider.

Joke apart: they aren't my colleagues. I saw these two sitting their and (lacking any zoom on my camera) I tried to walk as close I could without getting noticed. This was the closest distance I went. They didn't notice me, so I took this picture and left, because I didn't want to interrupt them. Furthermore, I only arrived to Brussels so I was thirsty for a Belgian beer.

Thank you for 'faving' it!
Best Wishes,

Hello György,
Of course I never didn't trust your word. I was just so amazed that you could find such a perfect composition "ready made", without having to arrange anything yourself. But good compositions in the streets is of course mainly a matter of observing and being discreet - and quick. Most people don't seem to have that talent, but you do.
