Photographer's Note

I have seen a post showing Jesus complaining that his birthday party was cancelled for the first time in 2020 years. There is a huge body of evidence that Jesus was a historical person but since he lived in the pre-digital times there is of course always a chance that somebody could have manipulated the story of his life or his words to benefit from it. Even nowadays there are so many “fake news”. Personally. I try to focus on the bright side: his message of love and forgiveness, something what we all struggle to embrace yet.

Since in the Christian culture it is a time for wishes, I wish you, no matter what you believe in, a healthy holiday season. Health is a gift which we learn to appreciate usually after we lost it, and in this time of pandemic, we realize how randomly a disease can strike even the strongest.

This photo presents an icon from inside of the dome in the Church of the Holy Apostles in Athens. It is located in the Ancient Agora of Athens and can be dated to around the late 10th century. If you want to see how the church looks from outside, check this photo by Jorge:
