Touring the Tourism of Tourists

A woman in high wedges, short skirt and crop top carefully traipses over rocky terrain outside the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens, Greece. The mild 8 a.m. temperatures keep her hair and makeup impeccably in tact despite the vigorous climb.

Mifflin 2014

I stopped by for a little over an hour and shot during what should have been the peak hours of attendance. If there was a photo to […]
