Photo shot with 16-35 f/2.8 L lens on Canon 6D in Rethymno, Crete, Greece.
When it’s my turn to choose one of my photos for Street Hunters Weekly Pic I always choose a photo I’m particularly proud of, and with an interesting back story. But this week I want to do something a little different, and share a photo with you because of what it means to me personally, and the emotions it conveys.
You will probably have been bombarded of late by news of Greece’s economic and political woes, with photos of rallies, protests, and queues at ATMs. I’ve shot my own share of photos at ‘No’ Syriza rallies and ‘Yes’ rallies too, but it doesn’t seem right to share one here and now. This week I want to share a photo that epitomises the positive spirit of Greece, and the incredible qualities this country has to offer, and remind us all that the hard times now are just a period in the country’s rich and long history, and will eventually come to an end.
