As many of you already know, I am fascinated by doors. I love the size, the textures, the designs and definitely the colors. But rust….hear me roar!!!
So this post is all about the doors, windows and shutters of Athens…I fell in love with so many…I stopped counting.
Just a tiny courtyard, between buildings…love the chair and that broom. There is something to photograph, everywhere you turn.
Dereliction and renewal…side by side.
I really have never seen so much graffiti, as I did in Athens. They’re almost always talented artists…but sometimes real art reflects life. In all these counties I came for the art, I never got my fill….I can never get enough. This was trip to a world I have always adored, it was never even in my dreams…. How lucky am I?
I am was thrilled by the scroll work in the veranda but even more amazed by the graffiti below….how it seems to mirror the art….or is it art?
No, this is not ‘10 Downing Street’ but don’t you just love that door? Peeling paint, rust and more!
Hey, did you get yourself a cup of joe? Well, you’d better…this is a long post…I’ve got more pictures for you, so get moving!
Now you’re thinking, we are all over the city, NOT, we haven’t even walked three blocks…remember we are talking old ladies here! The architecture is so stunningly, amazing we can hardly walk….well, that is not really true, my friend, Sharon, managed to get lost in a one block radius, right on the first day off the ship! Well, ok, she was just on the other side of a brick wall….but how was I to know? I am in a foreign country!!!
Simply beautiful architecture, everywhere you look!
Yes, this lovely church was right in the middle of all these sweet little homes.
Had enough yet?
I have, I am still in jet lag….thanks, for your patience with all my dribble! Hope you saw something that made you want to see Greece one day…
