The fog intermittently broke up and revealed the rock pillars of Meteora in central Greece. Chance!
I’ve always enjoyed tilt-shift photography, also known as miniature faking or diorama effect. It is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is made to look like a photograph of a miniature scale model.
The conventional way to achieve this is to use a tilt-shift lens. However, such illusion can also be simulated by post-processing software. And, in recent years, there are even smartphone apps or camera features that can fake the tiny toy town effect right away.
I was shooting into the sun and glad that everything aligned well. My response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine
Heaven and Earth.
I probably had no excuse not to press the shutter button.

Changing of the Guard in Athens, Greece. The precision drill takes place every hour on the hour. To stop change, you have to freeze time or snap a photo. This is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Change
Skulls of old monks who lived in the Monastery of the Great Meteoron (Greece). It chilled me to the bone. And, by the way, all their bones are on the bottom shelf … creepy enough that I had to hurry off and failed to compose the photo properly to include them!
My response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy
Those street faucets in old European cities always appeal to me. I love the details. I tend to take my time to adjust the tap knob to capture the right dripping moment. Some curious tourists would look over my shoulder, wondering what I was playing with or what was so interesting. Apparently, most of them were unimpressed and turned away immediately, preferring to get a selfie shot instead!
