This is the entrance of the port of Hydra. An island with long history and glory, still keeping a unique elegance, far away from mass tourism. A jewel destination. In the photo, taken late in the afternoon, the canon 'protecting' the port of Hydra, is combined with the small boats and the colours of the sunset.
This photo, to me, is about "brotherhood". Greeks have been, and are, the material and symbolic victims of the globalised greed governing (illegally) our - and I underline, "our" world. The world naturally with balance feeding all the existing communities. And I underline again, all, and each member of every existing being and community. As Aminus 3, too !
Thinking about "Enchanting" images. On this night I was truly enchanted after a great day out touring around Thessaloniki and then as I was walking back to my hotel, snapping photos along the way, I turned to see this big thumbnail of a moon hanging in an orange sky.
After a deep breath and a moment of reverence, I proceeded to walk briskly along the water, looking for good photo opps.
For the Aminus3 Weekly Prompt : Enchanting
The original photo was taken in Thessaloniki/Greece on September 15th 2018. At the sunset hour many groups of people were going to a great meeting protesting against adopting name of Macedonia for a former Yugoslav Republic. Finally there were over 100,000 people at the meeting and were also some violent incidents, so we felt for the first time the taste of tear gas. The meeting ended with a succes over time: the former Yugoslav Republic is now called Northern Macedonia, and Macedonia remains the name of a Greek province.
That day I was accidentally in Thessaloniki. This is one of those lucky photos taken when you are in the right place at the right time.
Many persons go there to see the amazing view , so we went also there .The Mizitres are two huge rock cones flanked by a deserted island rising from the blue sea and signing the beginning of the Kerì Caves.
Keri is famous for nearby Keri cliffs, rising over 300 m from the Ionian Sea. It took me a lot of courage because there is no fence and if you take one step to far you go 300 m down . but i made it :)
Whilst in Athens I browsed around the vibrant Plaka area. Near me on the other side of the tree was a group of young Greek boys. They were happily talking and laughing, when one stood and turned on a boom box. Sitting where I was gave me an interesting glimpse into the behind the scenes interactions and decisions as to what music and dance they would perform next. I was very impressed by these polite young men who were occupying themselves in such a positive and artistic way.
