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!

  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 …

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

      Like this

      • 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.

        Like this

        • 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

          • 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. :)

  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.

    Like this

    • 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 …

    • 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!
