Hello friends TL.
In Athens after visiting the museum you have to walk and explore the town. Syntagma Square (Parliament) is a very popular place for tourists to capture these soldiers who are Presidential Guard known as: Evzones.
Changing of the Guard takes place on Sunday around 11:00.
Thank you for your visit and your comments.

superbe Daniele, bien vu, bien composé... j'adore cette image la douceur des couleurs pierre qui contraste avec le rouge...



Bonjour Daniéle,

This is a fine post from a nice event, where the Evzones are doing their duty and you have captured them quite nicely.
The quality of the shot in itself is nice too. The sharpness and POV are well done.

Thank you for introducing to part of the Greek culture.


Best greetings

Bonjour Danièle

Très bel arrêt dans le mouvement. La netteté est excellente et les détails sont parfaits. J'aime beaucoup que les gardes ne soient pas centrés dans l'image ce qui permet de libérer le regard du garde de droite.
