photoblog image The Parthenon

The Parthenon

Ancient Greek temple built in the 5th century B.C.  for Greek goddess Athena. Amazing architecture which details ancient Greek architecture quite nicely. It is currently being reconstructed as can be seen from this picture. It got damaged during a 1687 attack on Athens. I had a thing for ancient architectural structures in college and learnt a lot on ancient Greek archi.. hence my blabbing on this piece.. It was very exciting to see it in all its glory. It took forever to get to the top though as it sits on a very high hill.. Nyhoo I will shut up now...On to the processing, I messed with the colors a little, wanted to make the sky bluer but thot it might look more like a painting..

I like the way you captured the ancient and the modern construction methods all in one.

When I send you messages do you see my real name (Mobolaji Kamson) or do you see Mask ?

I guess you are having a lot of fun in athens, are you still there ?

I didn't know you were into photography too ... this is a great shot of the Parthnon, it makes it look less 'ruiny' somehow which is nice. I love that place, I try and go everytime I'm in Athens but I don't love the trek in the heat!
