Classical Geometry (Travel Flashback)

Just a reminder of who invented that whole geometry thing: some pleasing angles in a closeup of the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens last November.

This temple is just a few blocks from the Acropolis, but feels like a different universe. There are no crowds, no ice cream and bottled water for sale, no souvenir vendors, no musicians, no schoolchildren. You could easily walk past the park and never even notice that there's a temple there, and apparently most tourists do. There were only two or three other people there.

        Here's a shot of the park. Unremarkable, except for the ruins.
