The blog is temporarily out of service

2008-12-11T04:21:38.261+02:00

(image) It's been some months that it was impossible for me to keep the promise of constantly updating Athens Daily Photo. Although this city has amazingly lot of icons to show and pictures to shoot, the extremely long working hours keep me away from the streets and where the true heart of this city beats.

So, I decided to take a long break. I will come back as soon as I have a photo inventory large enough to keep the (almost) daily updating.

Thank you everybody so much for your visits and comments.

Hope to return soon.

Bad Parking again

2008-12-11T04:21:39.373+02:00

Remember these posts about people parking all the time at disabled's ramps and pedestrians-only streets?

(image) Here, they actually park on handicapped peoples' spaces (every single such parking spot is taken but not one wheelchair in the store....hhmmmm). 

As if this was not enough, the idiot with the black Peugeot parked on the walkway. 

Needless to say, noone is ever complaining, noone is ever been fined. 

What happens in your own country?

Christmas is near

2008-12-11T04:21:39.804+02:00

Thank you so much Maria



Fierce and curvy

2008-12-11T04:21:39.975+02:00

(image) Dimitra sent me this nice pic. She says that in Germany, piglets are considered a good luck. Let's hope that it brings some good luck to this blog that hadn't seen a post for a month :-)



A visitor's photo

2008-12-11T04:21:40.114+02:00

(image) G Tas, a visitor to Athens kai to ADP, sent me this nice photograph.
«Here is one I got recently when I was in Athens. There are several irrelevant things together, and the result is unique and Athenian»



Road training

(image) When trains go astray in the highway. This one almost hit the bridge that was supposed to slip under. I was lucky enough to pass by at the right moment :-)



Olympic fixer

2008-12-11T04:21:44.798+02:00

(image) I took this photo during a visit to Olympic Airlines tech base. It makes me think of all the people who take care of us while we 're up there having the time of our lives.



Now and then

2008-12-11T04:21:45.325+02:00

Behind the construction equipment of the new Acropolis museum, lies this building that used to be the first military hospital in Athens, erected in 1834.

Some artist depicted it while it was brand new.



Air plant

2008-12-11T04:21:46.053+02:00

(image) You would think that it was planted and grown right there. :-)



Has the rain stopped yet?

2008-12-11T04:21:46.227+02:00

(image) Too much rain last week in Athens. Now dry.



Inter-dead

2008-12-11T04:21:46.583+02:00

(image)
(image) You 've probably heard many stories about people who spent their entire lives in internet cafes, like this for example. The first sign show what happens to a gamer when he spends too much time online.

The second one show what happens to an internet cafe when it's out of business.



Athenian horses and Polish bisons

2008-12-11T04:21:46.596+02:00


(image)
Remember the horse from an old, last year's post? Kjola, the daily photoblogger from Katowice, Poland, found a bison in her own hometown! Here is the photo and here is her blog.

Of men and hands

2008-12-11T04:21:47.846+02:00

(image) When the same gesture, for completely different men, means the same thing. "Lets go!". Humans always used the same body language, either the humble Greek sailor or the ruthless Korean dictator.

Athens and New York are getting closer

2008-12-11T04:21:49.442+02:00

(image)
(image) The first photo is in New York Metro and was taken by my friend Nikos (here is the post in his own blog). I took the second one in Athens. Both are promoting the new Continental Airlines Athens-New York route.

It's exciting to look how the same thing is promoted in both sides of the trip.

Launced in 1910, it served during WWI and WW2 and was decomissioned in 1952.

Today serves as a museum and is docked in Faliron.
