Provocative action

My latest trip in Meteora rocks was for once more a fulfilling experience and a new  promise to myself that I will go there again in order to get something quite different than the usual.


In Meteora


However looking at my shots from that last trip and after deciding to post process one of them that seemed interesting as a frame, I noticed and as I had already started to improve the tones and the contrast of the shot, that some people that were stood to the upper right corner of it, just above the Roussanou monastery, they  seemed like they were naked. At first I said “no way” my eyes mislead me, but then when I zoomed in that portion of the image inside Photoshop I realized that they were really naked.

Roussanou monastery is a nunnery, therefore the obvious thought of anyone seeing this kind of absurdity is that they tried to provoke the nuns  and their dedication to God.

Provocative Action


Meteora is a growing tourist destination for believers and unbelievers as well. It’s the rare rocky formations that rise above the plain, it’s the monasteries’ complex that once were isolated and secured enough from intruders, it’s tradition and a journey to the past.

However if we want to help monasteries to keep playing their role as hermitages we the tourists must RESPECT the decision of some people to live their life as monks or nuns and dedicate themselves to God. If monasteries get abandoned by those people that preserve them due to the excess tourist waves and tourists’ disrespectful attitude then Meteora and some hundred years of History will be gone forever.

Bellow is the link of the current photo on my 500px account, with the naked people cloned out of course.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

      I have to say I am sorry for my quite late answer. Unfortunately I don’t have much time to attend the things on my photography blog. However I wrote an article that may come useful to you.
