joelopez What is it? The kite? The palms? The clouds? The blue? Maybe the calmness? What is it that makes you shoot? 4d

joelopez The Panathenaic Stadium, also known as the Kallimármaro, meaning the "beautifully marbled", is a multi-purpose stadium used for several events and athletics in Athens. The Stadium hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of an ancient Greek stadium, the Panathenaic is the only stadium in the world built entirely by marble (from Mount Penteli) and is one of the oldest in the world. As it is an outdoor place, umbrellas to protect from the sun are really useful. The colour of it is up to you. She loves blue 2w

joelopez Mykonos, the white island is a lovely place where the sustained wind helps you to deal with the high temperatures. However, a deep shadow is always welcome. 2w

joelopez The Areopagus, composite form of the Greek name Areios Pagos, translated "AresRock", is a bare marble hill across from the entrance to the Acropolis. Its ancient marble steps can be slippery, especially in the rain. Near the base of the stairs there is a bronze plaque with the Greek text of Paul's sermon. At the top there are incredible views of the Acropolis and the city of Athens. You can't stop shooting everywhere...as you can see 3w

joelopez The Temple of the Olympian Zeus, also known as the Temple of Zeus Olympios or the Olympieion, was the largest temple in Greece. It took almost seven centuries to complete the massive temple.

Construction started in the sixth century BC during the Archaic era and the temple was finally completed in the second century AD, during the Roman era.

Originally there were 104 Corinthian columns of which only 15 remain standing. Hadrian had erected a giant gold and ivory status of Zeus inside the temple with an equally large one of himself next to it.

joelopez The Library of Hadrian is located on the north side of the Acropolis, immediately north of the Roman Agora. The complex was built by the Roman emperor Hadrian in 131/2 A.D. It was visited by Pausanias (1.18.9) who provides a brief description.
In form, the complex consists of a large, nearly square, walled enclosure, with entrance on the west. The walls on the north, south, and east were made of poros limestone, while the western wall was constructed of Pentelic marble. The western side also had a single row of Corinthian columns (made from marble from Karystos in southern Euboia) in front of the wall, on either side of the main entrance. Inside the complex was an open air courtyard, with a central pool and garden, surrounded by columns made from marble imported from Phrygia (no longer preserved). At the eastern end of the colonnade were a series of rooms (called oikemata by Pausanias) that housed the "library" where books were stored and served as reading rooms and lecture halls.

Although the building has been called the "Library" of Hadrian since the early 19th century, it is important to realize that it was much more than that. Archaeologists recognize that the architectural form of the complex is closely modeled on the Temple Pacis ("Temple of Peace") in Rome, one of a series of Imperial fora constructed by the Roman emperors. The Library of Hadrian provided the people of Athens with a new, multi-purpose, public square and cultural center that contained a garden, works of art, a library, and lecture halls. Breathtaking.

joelopez Discovering Mykonos. By the way. Second day without luggage thanks to the lack of professionality of #vueling. Be careful those who fly with them during your holidays. They can ruin them as it is happening to me. In fact, I will never fly again with them. #imPossiblevueling @vueling 4w

joelopez This is probably the most exciting collab I could do. This is a picture taken by my wonderful son Pol who is now in New York studying and He asked me to edit and post it for you. I couldn't say no, in fact I am hugely happy and proud to show you this astonishing picture of the Liberty. By the way, my edition was as short as a light and contrast correction. The rest is his. Thanks Pol. I love you so much!!!! 1mon

joelopez A day like today but 18 years ago I said yes to her but I also said yes to sexy intelligence, thrilling situations, solid future, laughs and hugs, revealing discussions, coincedence and complicity. I said yes to her and to strength and cleverness, to goodness and passion, to an example to follow and a mind to admire. I said yes then and I say yes now. I love you I said. I love you I say. Thanks for being here, being you, being with me 1mon
