Acropolis


  Columns on the Acropolis

We hopped on the subways which are great in Athens and got off at the Acropolis stop. A block away was the entrance to the trail up. It was simple. Athens is an easy place to be a tourist.

The Acropolis is everything you’ve ever thought it would be. A tourist spot supreme for sure, but the people just blend away when you approach the majesty of the old temples on the hill.

I took dozens of photos including all the classic scenes we’ve all seen in postcards and magazines.

But my favorite is this shot through the columns I shot on the way back down through the Proplylaia. It captures the majesty of the place for me.
