The story of olive .

In Greece we are very 'connected' with olive tree : the olive tree holds a
prominent position in our gastronomy,tradition,history and economy .
This wall describes the production of olive oil and it is situated near the center of Athens ,in Pireos avenue .I think that this art team has a great talent !
This is only a part of their work !

H O L I D A Y S !

Me and my camera , we apologise for our photoblog absence but we were very busy these days as we are going holidays (not with this boat ). We are going to visit Paros , an island close to Athens (3 hours by boat) and a lovely place that combines everything. This is a taste of Paros from my previous visit on May. We will be back at the end of the next week.

Just follow the arrow .

Sometimes , I like to shot no ordinary places. Here I am in a construction area close to Alexandras avenue .Maybe some of the workers had paint this construction stuff.I love the yellow the orange and the red arrow that leads nowhere. I took two shots - the fist one is the 'normal '.Have a great weekend !  Posted by Picasa

The palm tree .

This palm tree decorate the pavement of Panepistimiou street .Panepistimiou street is a main street that leads in Omonoia square .
There is a very sad story about palm trees in Athens :
at the previous century (1920 -1925 ) our goverment had decided to uproot many palm trees , because this tree brings back exotic countries and they didn't want to consider Greece as an exotic place !
Yes, we are idiots ...

Coxcomb red .

I wanted the heat so bad
I could taste the fire on your breath and
I wanted in your storm so bad
I could taste the lighting on your breath ..
Your hair is coxcomb red , your eyes are viper black ...
The word is so pale , next to you ...
Lyrics by Song Ohia ,one of my favourite groupes.
Photo from Votanical Garden ,one of my favourite places in Athens (see the previous post 'Step by Step' ) .

A different Botero .

This summer it is dedicated to Botero , as the National Gallery and the Concert Hall exchibit his fine work .I saw his paints only by coffe -table books and believe me it is not enough...
I went to the National Gallery and I found his whimsical depiction of rotund people , the caracteristic of his paints that gives them a pleasant comic quality.But I found something else , something different , I saw a Botero with a radical change I am talking about his latest series of 50 drawings and paintings depicting the torture of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib (second photo ) and I was socked.
His work is very powerfull don't miss !
