Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

I have to confess, I haven’t lived in an urban area in over 25 years.  The following pictures are from Athens.  I loved this city.

The mix of old and new was amazing.

We stayed in the Monastiraki area and it was great.  On first glance there was a lot of empty store fronts.  But, there were bars with wonderful musicians playing traditional music with the patrons singing and dancing along, the Athens flea market and the food market nearby.

Graffiti:  This is an urban sight.  Some is very good art and contributes to the urban landscape.  Other graffiti is not a welcome sight.

    • Thanks. I think that picture was taken from the Acropolis. It was an interesting feeling to be standing in an ancient place that had such an impact on present day and look out at the modern city.
