2021-10-26 ALL THE WAY UP

In the photo, you can see the last stairs before you reach the Acropolis. The pillars offer a foretaste of what to expect. Fascinating with which simple tools the structures were created 2500 years ago.

2021-09-01 THE GUARDIANS IN ATHENS

If you want to see the changing of the guard in front of the parliament in Athens, I recommend the evening hours. The lighting combined with the ritual of disciplined steps and the guards in the shade brings an additional sophistication to the procedure.

2021-08-22 MAIN SQUARE IN ATHENS

In every city, I visit the center. So also in Athens. Usually, there are a variety of sights and cultures of the country to be found there. In Greece, you have to explore the parliament, grand hotels, and the main square.

2021-03-26 GREEK PARLIAMENT

At times I am skeptical when looking for recommended attractions in a city. The changing of the guard from the Greek Parliament is a great event. The line-up of the guards and the synchronized movements is an exciting spectacle. I was lucky enough to be there at dusk and benefited from the special light.

2021-03-23 WAITING FOR MARIOS

I waited for my colleague Marios at Syntagma Square. There was little traffic due to the lockdown. So I got to the meeting point 20 minutes earlier. I used that to take pictures of the area, like here the way across Syntagma Square.

2021-02-26 ATHENS EVENING DINNER

On the next day, my friend Marios showed us a beautiful restaurant. I was especially impressed by the landing stage out to the sea. With my Leica M240, I could catch the scene, photographing from our restaurant table. By the way, we had excellent Greek finger food and red wine.

2021-02-25 ATHENS GUARDIANS

My last and only flight in the second half of 2020 was to Athens. It was a business trip, but my wife Karin came after two days after. On Saturday evening, we were watching the guardians before the parliament in Athens, a memorable spectacle. I shot from wide-angle to tele, from color to black and white, and with different frames.

2021-01-22 BEACH HOUSE IN GREECE

I didn’t know Glyfada before. A work colleague of mine lives there—a lovely area, with a long promenade and several ports and beaches. My wife Karin and I walked 5 kilometers of the way and experienced the fresh sea air and the pleasant evening wind. Stop by when you are in Athens.

2020-12-31 ACROPOLIS WIDE ANGLE

When I was in Athens with my wife this year, restoration work was being carried out on the Acropolis. So I was a little disappointed and still wanted to make the best of the situation. Therefore I decided to take a wide-angle photo to give the sky and the surroundings more emphasis and move the scaffolding into the background.
