I managed to leave my GF1’s charger back home, so I’ve been using my iPhone a whole bunch for a lot of my photos while in Athens. Not that I mind too much, the iPhone + VSCOcam app makes for a pocket sized dream.
Here’s Battleship Averof; Definitely one of the more impressive things that manage to float about.
[EDIT: Just learned that Averof is in fact an Armoured Cruiser, and is the last of its kind in existence.]
There was a more modern looking one just up the way, I don’t know it’s name, but we managed to scope it out afterwards. To be honest, it felt ready to go to war. So ready that at first we weren’t sure we were supposed to be wandering around it…
Ladies and Gentlemen, your captain…
I especially dug the things around the battleship, and the various things that were clamped to the sides.
Grace found a bunch of hats. They were quite heavy, and Stephen thought they’d make for cool bike helmets.
Again, cats were everywhere. We were surrounded by about 15 at one point.
Seriously, when was the last time you saw a cat on the beach?
… and when was the last time you saw a man sporting a permed mullet haircut, wearing jogging bottoms, a top that reads “MOTOR CYCLE”, kicking back like he don’t give a damn?!
Likely never, until now:
I’ve never felt compelled to stroke a tree before, but these sort of had carpets on them. It was quite surreal.
Kinda like stretched out pineapples with beards.
The Dogs of Athens haven’t been getting as much attention as I would like. To be honest though, I’ve mainly seen them at night in less than desirable lighting conditions, but here’s one chilling next to a bike.
Stephen & Grace.
