"Classic" indeed. Proportion discerned by the Greeks.
Well shown.

How they did it in the "olden days" is something we should learn from - you're right - how to stand the test of time.

Beautiful shot.

The Greek columns are magnificent. Yes, if we think of the time when they are raised is fantastic.

The building art!
If it hasn't stand for long, it is nice to know that they are still building this way.

Great shot, great color only it was not a habit of the greeks to make square colum's. Still beautiful picture Wong

Coincidence or divine providence??? ;-)

We both fiddle with an architecture theme in our current posts. Yours definitely look a bit more classically and gloomily than my one...

Have an enjoyable workweek! Do you celebrate Chinese New Year festival next week? The Water Snake is waiting to take over regency! ;-)

Uwe, Dragon heart.
