    The Main Event.....

    I've been putting off editing the Athens pictures because I knew I'd have trouble with perspective, given that the RX1 already has distortion. In the end I tried really hard to get them straight in camera relying on it's own straightening aid. The Parthenon was very crowded and although we started early, it wasn't long before the hoards had gathered in their tourist guide parties and I gave up even trying to get a clear shot.

    The people in front remind me of a great photo book: A small world by Martin Parr. Ever since I came upon that book, I accept the people in my images. In the same way the photographer behind me should accept me. Anyhow, nice details in the second shot.

    But some of us have behinds that are unacceptable.
