A-Z Archive: G! Challenge

This week’s topic for our A-Z ARCHIVE photo challenge: the “G” archive: introduce one photo of your own archive with a “G” keyword for example GREECE (like me) or GYM, GRASSHOPPER or GUITARIST, GHANA or GERMANY, GULL or GRAFFITI, GREY or GREEN, GORILLA or GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, GIRLS or GHOSTS etc. – I’m sure you’ll find a picture… tag with “A-Z Archive” and put a link on your page to my site, so we’ll get a trackback-list including your post!

photo “G-Archive / GREECE” by Frizztext
this sort of (my) photography is too romantic (childish) to make an useful reality check related to the topic GREECE: we need more political photo journalism! or? compare greeks-protest-vs-austerity-measures
join our interactive gallery!

    Love the Greece photo. You need a little romance in today’s world and especially on Valentine’s day!


  6. Great minds think alike! I also put up a different part of Greece :)

  8. The sea is so clam and has dignity.


    • yes, dignity – I had the same feeling;
      on the other hand:
      on the ground of that volcano filled with water:
      rests a sunken cruise ship:
      – the Greek island SANTORINI is the top of a volcano!
      on the ground:
      the sunken cruise ship SEA DIAMOND;
      maybe too: the sunken culture of ATLANTIS …
      more than dignity –
      maybe uncanny, sinister, lurid …


  9. I’ve never been. I know I would go crazy taking photos there! Although, I go crazy taking photos anywhere, LOL! Margie


  10. Greece looks beautiful. Great photo.

  12. Do I put a link under the photograph, or what?


  13. I love the contrast of colors in your photo…and the steps leading the eye to the boat in the water!
    Here is my entry for the week…http://nolagirlatheart.wordpress.com/2012/02/14/a-z-archive-g-challenge-glass/


  14. Okay, I think I got this right. Let me know if I did it wrong. Anyway, here is my entry for ‘G’


    • GIRDERS:
      a new word for me – and one can take it metaphorical, or?
      we all need some girders for our life to feel safe?


      • LOL Just girders. Nothing metaphorical, only as you wish. :)

        Or are you speaking of Girdles?

        Sometimes I think I need to be hit upside the head with a girder to knock some sense into me.


        • girder for bridges (wood)
          girdles for girls (leather)
          in Germany we have the saying:
          water has no wooden girders
          (you can sink if you plan too risky projects)
          at least do not go out without a girdle –
          you could lose your trousers
          don’t laugh, you are motivating me
          to learn English
          greetings from Germany
          Wasser hat keine Balken.
          Alle Sprache ist schwer.


          • Well, I didn’t laugh, but I did smile.

            According to an online translation website,
            Wasser hat keine Balken. = Water has no bar.
            Alle Sprache ist schwer. = All language is difficult.
            Is that correct?

            You write English pretty well, I would say. :)


            • thanks for your translation of my German sayings:
              Water has no bar – but Jesus walked over the water
              – have I lost something in translation?


              • I’m not sure what you mean. What were you trying to translate? And how did Jesus enter the discussion? I’m just a little bit confused.


                • sorry, dear Cris, I did not want to confuse you; your websites’ name “the biblical apologist” made me think about Jesus; you should know, I’m influenced by Immanuel Kant and his enlightenment; I’m sure he asked himself the same; on the other hand, the German saying “water has no bar” maybe was not vs. the bible but a warning for sailors (nevertheless even sailors often tried to destroy ships – of the others…)
                  thanks to Cris, he inspired me to write now the post:
                  NOTHING IS SAFE


                  • Thanks for the explanation and the article, which clarified your above statement even further.

                    I, too, hope your daughter is on the mend and feeling well.


  15. Frizz, thank you for featuring Greece as your G archive post today. What a chaotic situation that poor, dear country is in! Let us focus powerful waves of love and care and any intervention any of us is capable of for the Grecians.


    • when I was in Greece on that island Santorini there were only two lavatories, one for male, one for female, in the airport. 70 women waited in a long line. they needed at least twenty more toilets there! another disaster: many ill animals on that island: only one vet for hundreds of donkeys and thousand dogs and thousands of cats. many with bad cancer growing in an eye – it was very sad. my skepticism grew… some of the hotel owners earned very much money on the other hand. seemed to be a matcho structure, without any empathy for the poor ones …


  16. Great post again: Delightful!

  18. Aw, Frizz, that’s awesome! One day, I will visit Greece. Beautiful shot. Wow.
    Here’s mine for the week:
    Hope ya like it. Happy Valentine’s Day, or night, rather. It’s 8:15pm here. ;) *hug*


    • oh Carol,
      thank you for G = GUITAR GIRL!
      now my daughters are aged forty – and I was surprised, as they told me, the best I, as father, had given to them was the love to guitar playing; all my grandsons share this opinion …


      • GUITAR heroes Chuck Berry & Keith Richards – performing “Oh Carol”! did you know this track???

        and notice: nothing is perfect at the first trial – they start several times – even those guitar heroes!


  19. Oh my… I just said “wow” when I saw the pic. It’s very beautiful, Frizztext!
    I am loving your site, and so I added you on my blogroll, if you don’t mind :)
