I've just been on a trip to Greece. Greece is hit hard by the economic crisis and stands on the brink of economic collapse. The effects of the crisis can to a certain extent be seen . Closing stores, unfinished buildings, ghost hotels etc. .. So I took a series of images - and finished them in LR4 and Photoshop Elements.
The pictures could have been taken elsewhere than in Greece on Lesbos - but they reflect very much my feelings about the challenges faced by the Greeks. Images of decay and crisis are always evil.
I sincerely hope that the Greeks must overcome even this crisis ... as they have done so often before in their long history. I and the rest of Europe needs Greece...
