Athens: The Fun Ride
April 26, 2015
My friend Ralph Velasco is a professional photographer and tour guide. He recently published a book called Essence of a Place.
The subtitle of the book is A Travel Photographer's Guide to Using a Shot List for Capturing Any Destination.
Ralph suggests more than a dozen categories including “Customs and Traditions.”
May I add a sub-category? “Recreation.”
It seems to me that the way a society or group spends their leisure time is an essential aspect of modern life.
So, I decided to post my many unedited photos of today’s Athens “Fun Ride.”
Here we find hundreds of girls and boys and women and men sharing a Sunday morning activity. Parents with their children are also sharing the moment.
Do we have here a clue as to the bonds of family and friends that define the “essence” of the Greek community and the character of Greek society?
Have a great ride,
