[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken a few months ago in Plaka,Athens.
It reminds me of some old Greek-Italian films where comedy and drama are mixed in a most entertaing way.

These characters where the main actors,a traditional entertainer with "laterna".

Hi Kostas,
Amazing old effect on this photo, well created PP work, sepia tones and framing. It has the mood of the old times, good observation and capture in the streets of Athens. TFS.

Hi Kostas
Its really hard going back into times these days.
The old movie machine is still there but modern ways have taken over with the wheels.
Would that be the accordeon that the young man has in front of his legs? what we called the organ grinder to give noise while the movie was going on?
Definitely old stuff and your rendition of it does it justice.
WEll done

Hi Kostas,
Good choice of color tone..its wonderful..impressive work! good job...
Best regards!
