Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV


Here’s another challenge that I have been looking forward to before our internet was gone. To check it out, click {here}.

This is my photo of the Ancient Acropolis in Athens, the Parthenon, the Greek flag, and the opposite mountain. I was venturing on my own,  along with many unfamiliar tourists for 1 hour and  I didn’t even realize it until my alarm clock said so. It was a beautiful experience, exhilarating, fantastic, one-of-a-kind. I was finally in one of the ancient places you cannot miss to visit in your lifetime! It was a dream come true. It was a marvelous sanctuary.  And as I followed the marble pathway; these are the same path the ancient people went through. For the sake of worshiping their Gods and Goddesses. Thinking about it, I thought how far human civilization had moved on. Two thousand years have passed and even though those Gods weren’t worshiped as they were worshiped before, they still exist. This mountain, the remains of the Parthenon, the ancient upper city – are still standing. And humanity moved on so far as finding what’s outside the universe and to remember these old Gods, there are several planets named after them.
