A sunny day in Lavrio

25th of March 2011

Laurium or Lavrio is a town in southeastern part of Attica, Greece. Laurium was famous in Classical antiquity for silver mining, which was one of the chief sources of revenue of the Athenian state. The metallic silver was mainly used for coinage. It was notorious for the poor treatment of the slaves who worked in the mines. It is a sea port of much less importance than nearby Piraeus.
It is located about 60 km SE of Athens and N of Cape Sounio.

    I love all the photos from the series, but the last one is my favorite. I wrote you on dA maybe because of all the overexposed parts.

    • Stamatis Gr says:

      Usually i shoot with a Nikon D90, with either a 28mm prime lens or a 18-105 kit lens, or a sigma 10-20.
      Sometimes I use a Leica Mini zoom or an Olympus Trip.
