Greek corner

We have a little Greek corner at the central part of the town. How it got the name and the history is a mystery to me (nothing much online). In fact there's nothing around that's related to Greece except for this Greek Orthodox Church (est.1786) I've so many questions!
The small space is popular among teenagers and skate boarders during the evening. I promise more "action" shots of skate boarders the next time, til then enjoy the few minutes of sun shining on the church yesterday ;)

Hi Kris
The colors are very beautiful and dramatic in this shot - I think it's almost magical.

Great light - yes with clouds that heavy they're probably moving fast - you'd have about 30 seconds! Glad you got the shot!

I like the dark clouds, but still some sun shining on the church. Beautiful!

Your last 3 shots have been stunning!
I especially liked the one in the church--beautiful!
As for the bulky advertising--your right it is ugly and
messy(but never any need to cover up boobies!!)
I don't see the need to hide stuff like that from my
10 year old son(and never have).After all 50% of the worlds
population have got them!!! I think if you hide stuff like that then
it makes it more taboo.But,just my opinion. :-)
