Strefi Hill - Athens. Tourists Don't Come Here, But Photographers Should.

This is a view from Strefi Hill in Athens. Most tourists don't come up here. They're probably put off by the drug addicts and refugees who's tents in the woods below are a constant reminder that Athens is a complicated city, with complicated problems. But, like most of the city it's ridiculously safe to walk around up there, and those who visit will be rewarded with spectacular 360 degree views. While you can see the Acropolis and all the way to the Piraeus and the sea, it's also worth drinking in the sprawling cityscapes of tenement buildings and rooftop terraces. This is what you see here. Shot on the tiny Canon G7X point and shoot camera. Showing once again that travel photography isn't about the gear, it's about what you point it at.
