March 25 - Greece Independence Day

Reposting of a picture originally uploaded on March 25, 2009, to mark Greece Independence Day.

I was just informed by my dear friend, photographer Georges M, that this very picture was used to illustrate an article on the economy of Greece on the French "Marianne2" site:


Thanks a million, Georges!


Georges M:


March 25, 1821 marks the official start of the Greek fight against the Ottomans, that led to the liberation of our country and to the birth of modern day Greece.


This shot was taken in the port of Aeghina and is actually the conventional version of an "impressionist" approach of the same subject, uploaded earlier this month

That was an experiment in low speed photography, this one is... well, the standard stuff!!!



My Flickr friend, Michael--B

had expressed his wish to see a non-blurred version, and I had promised to him I would upload it also...

So, here it is Michael!


Picture gladly offered for publication on the Greek Diaspora site: ""
