Midnight on Easter night, Athens

Neighbours make their way to church, stopping to buy  candles which get lit at midnight by a holy flame. 

A man looks so lovingly at his girlfriend, I couldn't help but take a picture. 

The holy flame gets passed from person to person, eventually everyone is holding a lit candle. 

The priest chants for the waiting crowd as children play on the stairs behind. 


  1. you wield you camera with such non-intimidating aplomb. every face in these images is open to your lens....

  2. have to agree with Sam....... I truely love your work.
