A glimpse of the past

Being in a place where you can almost feel the history and a sense of what has gone before is something we have all experienced. In ancient buildings it’s easy to try and imagine who and what may have been there previously. Greece in the late thirties early forties was a place that was full of intrigue and in parts war torn. One can only imagine just how the country was ripped apart and people full of suspicion. The church played a huge part in keeping communities together and a refuge for families . Speaking with older Greeks, one can hear first hand of what life was like in an age gone by!

Photographing something as it is today is all well and good , add a filter a little tweak and the picture tells a different story . I have tried to add a feeling of history to the shots below.
