The card sharp. Athens / by Ed Godsell


I was recently working in Athens and had a chance to walk around for a bit.  It's a big and gritty city but I was chuffed to spot this scene when walking home to my place after a day of walking/shooting.  I caught it in the corner of my eye as I was passing a building, the room is downstairs and the window was blocked by a plant, hence the strange frame.  But I think I caught the scene nicely, the gestures and faces, the female beside them.  I love the old gramophone in the corner too. It needs to be viewed on a large screen.  The scene reminded me of the Sopranos.
