Athens, Greece – Parthenon

While in Greece a bit ago…we traveled up to the Acropolis and my dream was to see the Parthenon.  I have posted about this in the past…I was saddened by the fact it was under a ten year refurbishing project.  Does 10 year really mean 10 years or will it take more time to refurbish this wonder of the world?  Hmmm.   At this time I could only find a few angles to shoot from as there was scaffolding all around the structure.    So what is a photographer to do when his subject is lacking?  Look around!  Just behind the Parthenon was this pile of columns possibly under construction?   I enjoyed seeing these red flowers surround them…a nice contrast.   A favorite photo of mine from the trip!   We will get back there again…but not until the Parthenon is ready!
