Almost Alive

A photo I took at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece. This very old statue's head was different... The focus is on the nose.


The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.


More facts: The National Archaeological Museum in Athens houses some of the most important artifacts from a variety of archaeological locations around Greece from prehistory to late antiquity. It is considered one of the great museums in the world and contains the richest collection of artifacts from Greek antiquity worldwide. It is situated in the Exarhia area in central Athens between Epirus Street, Bouboulinas Street and Tositsas Street while its entrance is on the Patission Street adjacent to the historical building of the Athens Polytechnic.

I am Almost Alive


A poem by Katie Gabrielle


I am Almost Alive

I have rhythm

I have jive!

But it's awfully hard

To see

I'm not that cute

I'm only me!


I am an old piece of history

Where my brain is

That's a mystery!

And my nose

Is really big

They call me art

What's your name

I'm all in pieces

They call that fame

Stick me in an cold museum

Where people stare

Don't think I see them

But I do

They point and say

Who's the dude

With half a brain?

He's lost his mind

Is he insane?

He is a statue made of stone

He's almost alive

Leave him alone!!
