There is a certain area in Athens where it is not advised to walk alone
even in broad daylight. I "happened" to pass by that area on my motorbike, camera hanging from the neck...


Some people look for hell in religious books...
Some people look for paradise in their prayers...

Both are right here!
Beside us...in front of us!

In fact I discovered that I haven't been watching your deviations, because when I left I removed the watch from all my friends list.
It's corrected now.
Don't cry Stam :)

I saw a guy getting stabbed with a needle during a fight in the main street of my small town in Scotland. Nothing more dangerous than somebody with nothing to lose.

ok... this is an amazing capture my friend.
:clap: :clap: :clap:
I know how hard is taking this kind of pictures it is.
you take the picture that I can't, the moment of the consume act. (I'm still trying)
Everybody knows that this happend all the time but is diferent when you can see and realize that is near to us...
I'm sure that we think the same in this case: "the picture worth the risk" ;)

though I didn't sense any risk at that time :)
