Panoramic shot atop The Acropolis includes the Parthenon and a few random tourists. This shot begged to be in B&W so I said OK. Thanks to all who have been helpful by offering comments and advise as I experiment with black and white shots.
The Heraion of Perachora was a sanctuary of the goddess Hera situated in a small cove of the Corinthian gulf at the end of the Perachora peninsula. In addition to a temple of Hera of unusual construction and antiquity, the remains of a number of other structures have also been found, including a L-shaped stoa, a large cistern, dining rooms, and a second potential temple.
There is a legend recounted in Euripides that Medea buried her murdered children at a sanctuary of Hera Akraia as she fled from Corinth. This may be a reference to this site. Herodotus tells the story of Periander stripping the clothes off of the Corinthian women at a sanctuary of Hera. In the 1st century CE, the Greek historian Strabo wrote that there was an oracle associated with the sanctuary.
Probably the last of a few photos that seemed to be well liked but not seen by very many. I pulled it down and reworked it a bit. I got the brick work to pop out a bit and liked this new version much better than the original. I hope to have some new work up by the end of October. You all are so nice. Thanks for your views, likes and favorites.
