Holy Strength

A little Church dedicated to "Holy Strength"
standing under a tall building
(former Ministry of Education).

Not so nice but very strange scene!

History: it was build on 16th century and
is said to protect pregnant women.
Because of the archaeological value
they had to build the building
over the church.

umbrellas

It was raining heavily today.
Here you can see a lot of umbrella-sellers
at the exit of Synagma metro station.

These are very cheap umbrellas,
of the worst quality
(they get destroyed on the spot while wind blows)
but they have very live and happy colors!

bird watching!

This is not an artistic photo, but
I wanted to take a shot of the pigeons
sitting on the kiosk's roof.
This morning,
just outside the entrance of metro station,
a few minutes before getting in my work.

A beautiful old house,
falling apart...

οπωρο-παντο-πωλείον!

Οπωροπαντοπωλείον
means fruit and grocery seller, and
το παραδοσιακόν
means "the traditional".
Such little shops do still exist in neighbourhoods.
This place is called Mets and
is in a walking-distance from Syntagma...

Come, nice plants!

A "moving" plant-seller!
He drives through neighbourhoods and
calls women by a loudspeaker
to come and buy plants
for their gardens and balconies!

the sun

In the Monetary Museum garden.
Athens, the capital of Greece, with more than 3.000.000 people....
It's not just ancient ruins and pollution.
Its' also the suburbs, everyday people, gardens, bitter orange trees.
