through the broken windows of an old abandoned factory.
Gorgeous shot! Love the lighting and composition.
Thank you very much! The benefits of having more people when you are going on a photo excursion!
… expectation that somehow this man will move. Like De Chirico´s “Melancholia”!
I like De Chirico very much! Thank you Eldin!
I really dig this photo, in my mind the man is contemplating whether to restore the building or tear it down and start over. I think we’re reaching the point in modern capitalism where there is no hope for repairing the system, it needs to be collapsed completely and built anew. The question is how to do this without more innocent bystanders getting caught in the rubble.
Here’s a post on Greece and the IMF you might like: http://systemicdisorder.wordpress.com/2013/05/08/greece-depression-imf/
Excellent photography as always!
Unfortunately everything man made, like the capitalist (or any other) system, has flaws. One of the greater flaws is that some people take advantage of the system for their own profit and while they are at it they put little traps so that it is very difficult to fix the flaws without creating more damage to society. So unless they allow it, the resolution can only be painful to the innocent, as well. The lack of great leaders is another problem. I am pretty sure that many of the leaders today are smart enough to understand the existance of the traps, but fixing the problem is another thing all together.
Thank you for the link. A very thorough description of what is happening in Greece and most importantly why.
Hope more people read this. Awareness is the first giant step, really.
Excellent Image, Vassilis!
Thank you Karen! Built in 1979, used as one of the country’s state olive oil storage and obviously abandoned.
I knew I “liked” this weeks ago, my phone must have been screwing up!
You probably remember a different one from the same session named :Everything is broken. Thank you for noticing! 😉
Hello again Vassilis, was hoping to chat with you today. It is very late there now . . I was hoping to reblog your post. Please let me know if that would be alright. Thank you
I just came back from the avant – premiere of a theater play I did the photos for and went through the messages in quite a haste! I will read them and reply to you tomorrow! By the way it is very thoughtful of you to ask for my permission. By all means you can. Good night!
I will tonight … Thank you Vassilis

Lovely photo today ~ reading about people far away and hearing these stories, good or bad. This is a great way to become part of the equation. I am so happy to have this connection. One day …. it is my dream to travel that way. Now feeling closer than before and I thank you for that Vassilis. Wishing you and your loved ones happiness always.
Thank you! Just saw it.The smog got me at last and many Greeks as well. The atmosphere is so polluted they are trying to figure out a way to stop people from burning their fireplaces. Unfortunately, they don’t consider lifting the heavy tax off of heating oil and this can only mean that you either stay in bed for the rest of the winter or freeze. The worse of all is that they burn wood that is not for burning (with paint, glue etc ) plus there was a report that some of it may be radioactive.
This was happening here about 10 years ago. Lucky a Group got involved with the Local Fire Department to teach how to burn cleaner. Took about 5 years of work. Now things are better. Smoke was coming in my windows. At night and in the morning was the worst. The smell made me sick too. Now things are better . . not perfect. Hope you may find a solution soon Vassilis.
Unfortunately this is not only an issue of lack of knowledge. It is a matter of priorities. Freeze now or choke later….
Yes, I do understand and feel for you all. Very sad about this. Wish there was a solution. One day
Thank you! I guess, when we see he light! 😉
Like to believe that everything is connected and one thing leads to another . . people help each other find this light ~
It is a beautiful believe that I share!
We share this same one. Makes me very happy to know that.
This is like a life line connection here 😉 So very glad to be near , Dear
less than 48 hours to Christmas! Hope you are doing great!Busy schedule these last days, fixing the house, visiting people that we won’t be able to see on Christmas day and today going to my older daughter’s school celebration! Tomorrow is Carol day and maybe a chance to wrap some presents! The weather is fine and although I like snow (it is rare in Athens, sometimes 1 in 3 years!) I wish it doesn’t snow. So many homeless, so many without means for heating…
This year is almost done. So happy to know you a little bit here. People are rich. Knowing about you makes me extremely happy. Rich meaning, beautiful spirits … Kindred and very Dear. I pray for you Vassilis
Take good care, and God Bless your family, have a wonderful Christmas and an even better New Year Vassilis
Thank you Catherine! Good to know you too. Maybe there is going to be a change and praying is the choice for me as well. Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year as well. Anytime you feel like it you can email me!
Hey … plan on getting one, talk to you soon ;D
