Leaving Greece

I could keep on posting pictures from Greece for another year but I've decided to end this theme now, as I want to try something another one. I hope that you've enjoyed the presented selection. The new theme will be be up tomorrow, until then, enjoy this panorama taken from the Athenian Acropolis (Bigger version here).

I would also like to pull this theme together by going back to where I began. Compare the shot I posted back then to this painting by Edward Lear from 1848. The city may have popped up around the site but the setting is, even so, still almost the same. There's in fact really only one thing that has changed since then - one column fell down in a storm 1852.
