As we drove by, though, the parking areas were full, and they were not letting in any more cars.
So we had appetizers instead.
Sunday we planned to get there early, 2 o’clock or so, and that worked very well. The food was fresh and good (Spanakopita!), but what I really wanted?
And the weather was a complete change compared to last year, being sunny, warm and cloudless.
We walked around a bit, looking at wares (mostly jewelry) in vendor tents and taking the air. Then I noticed the welcome signs on the church door.
You couldn’t hold me back! A chance to shoot inside the church!
We waited for Hellas 2000 to start playing live music and listened for a while. But you know? It might have been a little easier to get into if I knew the lyrics! It’s like those Greeks have a different word for everything!
As we were leaving, I had to, naturally, shoot the church in the lowering sunlight. I like the distinct lighting here – it seems to emphasize the shapes.
All in all, a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Though, one of these times, I do want to see the traditional dancers that are supposed to perform.
