Even better than the Acropolis itself. Well almost. At least in the summertime when thousands of tourists are stuck in between the Patheon and the Dionysos temple at 45 degrees Celsius. This is one of the few museum where it is not allowed to take pictures.

I took some before I asked. Sorry.

The museum is really beautiful. It’s location is also terrific. It somehow reminds me of the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao: The building is more spectacular than what is on display. Don’t get me wrong: There are great things on display here. I just think that the museum overwhelms the display items and that’s not a good thing. The focus should be on the exhibits. That is the basic idea of a museum. It that sense the Acropolis museum is a failure. But a very beautiful one.

All images are processed with VSCO. I love those pre settings for Lightroom. They vastly improve the Sony RX100 RAW files that look a little flat right out of the camera. The RX100 is the perfect business trip camera. It’s there when you need it and despite it’s size you get very close to “real” camera results. Wonderful!
