The New Acropolis Museum, Athens
July 1st, 2009
I took only a small digital camera to Athens with me, as I didn't find it that photogenic a city on my last visit and as I usually don't shoot much when I'm not alone.
But now Athens has the new Acropolis Museum and it's designed for photographers, it seems. Its reflections, its glass floors, its spacing, it all works great in photographs.
So I regretted not having my DSLR with me, which is much better in low light than my digicam. I could spend hours taking pictures in that museum...
One interesting feature, pictured here, is the fact that the museum has glass floors. From the lower level, you can see the ruins of old Athens in the basement, hence the glass floors on that level.
But the upper level also has glass floors, so when you stand in the middle level, which I did here, you look down on the lower level and its reflections of the upper level. If you're patient enough - which I wasn't - you could get great juxtapositions of people on the various levels.
