You look so happy, @Leo. Laughing at @Lisa and her cats. Did you know there’s a legitimate but offensive word for those bundle of sticks? There’s even a subreddit for them. I won’t post it here.

Very cool photos!!!

This one is really nifty https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/business7/uploads/twit/original/2X/b/b3c54c56b33acdb5aeb213442d0713673ce631e7.jpeg but my eye for details has me curious what sort of thing the “power line” looking thing running down the left side is?

That’s a crane. The Acropolis is under constant restoration. The story goes in the 17th century the Venetians blew it up by lobbing mortars from a nearby hill. The Acropolis was being used as an ammo dump and the thing exploded spectacularly.

Ever since bits and pieces of the temples and monuments have been found in the surrounding areas. Once they’re dragged up to the top they’re cataloged and archaeologists attempt to reassemble the original masterpieces. Well at least the bits not stolen by the Brits.

Beautiful photos. Are we allowed to use them as screen savers? I want one for my MacBook

Leo you may already know this but I heard you and Chris talking about taking sunset photos. Instead of just going there at sunset and guessing where you want to set up use Google Earth Pro to see exactly where you want to set up by using the ground level 3D view…navigate to where you want to shoot from and then go to the sun icon and scrub the times and you can see where the sun will be relative to where you are shooting from. No time wasted! Have a great vacay!

I guess I should have been more clear when I said left… I mean left of the main buildings.

It looks like it’s supported by posts at intervals. I expect it’s too steep to be a railing, so maybe it’s a hose for draining something.

Now really want to know the story about that bundle of sticks :thinking::smiley:

I’m presuming you mean this picture? https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/business7/uploads/twit/original/2X/b/b10dcea73eef927daf192e442e513fa74d9ef670.jpeg Pretty sure they’re cinnamon sticks.

That market. #meat :heart_eyes:
