PhotoHunt - Informative

Whenever I travel to new places, I take photos of informative signs that interest me.

This is one of the informative signs I captured when I visited the Acropolis of Athens last year. There are many archaeological remains throughout the site and each major structure has informative pictures to help you identify the ruins and a short description on the history of the restoration works.

I've captured a section of the informative text as a reference so that I can read it on my computer anytime.

Here's the Propylaia, the entrance to the Acropolis

  1. What a fascinating place to visit and great shots of it. I see I'm not the only one who photographs signs. Fun that we both had the same idea for this theme.

  3. That's funny, I do that too! Mostly I do it at the beginning of a photo shoot so that I can later figure out where the heck the photos are from if it's not obvious.

  6. How fortunate to be in Athens! Back in the 60s, before the air pollution became a problem, it was so much easier to access the sites and get around. Still, all that history can't help but be uplifting.

  13. I hadn't realized that the Acropolis' buildings were pinkish! In other photos I've seen, they've looked more white! :O

  17. We really enjoyed visiting the Acropolis - we were smart and showed up before the cruise ship crowds arrived. I had a couple of guidebooks but I sure appreciated the informative signs as well.

  19. I have not seen the Acropolis from these angles. They make it seem as if I am about to make the climb. I, too, take pictures of signs so I can remember what I saw when I get home.

  21. Heh! I take photos of signs too but only because I am lazy and don't want to take notes!! I love that first photo of the Acropolis, it is a great angle.
