Σουλατσάροντας στο Μοναστηράκι. Strolling in the flea market



















A hot Sunday at the Athens flea market.
Wandering aimlessly.
Nothing else to do than taking pictures.
Going with the flow...
 

an einem heissen sonntag
auf dem athener flohmarkt.
nichts anderes zu tun, als fotografieren.
sich “unter die leute mischen”
nichts weiter...

  5. Was für ein toller Flohmarkt....da hab ich so einige Dinge entdeckt die mir sehr gefallen würden, abgesehen von den "Kleidern".

    Das nette Lächeln des Mannes gefällt mir übrigens auch sehr gut. Schaut so richtig schön in deine Kamera.

    ...und auch wennste mir lange Zähne gemacht hast, danke für den kleinen Eindruck und liebe Grüße

  13. with my brother we used to take the train to Monastiraki (not a very long trip-we lived only a few stations away). We sat in coffee shops with our frappes and then walked around the area, along with many tourists and all sorts of people, who became more and more as the day went on.
    One could find everything there. Clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags, furniture, new stuff and used stuff.
    In Abyssinia square, every Sunday, the flea market (since 1910). And this was my highlight.
    Old Willow pattern plates, tableware, boxes, small round tables, rocking chairs, cutlery, pictures, books. Delightful!
    We've never been collectors. We enjoyed just looking at these fine, rare or really old artifacts and sometimes buy a few small things, if we found something we liked. We enjoyed the atmosphere around us. It smelled souvlaki from the various eateries and cinnamon from the bakery at the corner. It smelled of jasmine and lemons from neighborhood's pots, usually located next to entrances or on windowsills.
    Aroma that mingled with the mild mildew odor and dust,from "other people's trash" ( as we call used objects here in Norway...) .
    There were colors, tourists with sandals and socks, in that heat! and a kind of confidence that this chaotic context managed, in a strange way, to provide one.

    Thank you my friend : )

  20. φανταστική βόλτα.Και τι ωραίες λήψεις που έκανες.Είναι όλοι τόσο φυσιολογικοί-))))
    κάποια στιγμή,γιατί θέλει δυνατή ψυχολογία,θέλω να ζωγραφίσω έναν ζητιάνο.Αν έχεις κάτι στην γκαλερί σου,εδώ είμαι εγώ-)))
    πολλά φιλιά και καλή συνέχεια-)))
    Υ.Γ.μήπως να μεγάλωνες ΄λιγάκι τα γράμματα,γιατί δε βλέπω καλά,και ντρέπομαι ακόμα να ψάχνω για γυαλιά..χαχαααααααααα

    1. Αν πατήσεις"Ctrl" και "+" (ταυτόχρονα) τα γράμματα θα μεγαλώσουν ...αυτομάτως μόνα τους! Αν πατήσεις "-" θα μικρύνουν. 'Οσο πατάς "+" θα μεγαλώνουν περισσότερο κι όσο πατάς "-" θα μικραίνουν περισσότερο. Αυτό ισχύει για όλες τις σελίδες στο ιντερνετ.

  28. Hallo Monika,
    ich denke mal, du bist über 'Hongkong / Wong Ching Wah' auf meinen Blog aufmerksam geworden. Und neugierig wie du eben bist - das zeigt mir die Liste der Blogs, die du mit einer ausgeprägten Sammelleidenschaft verfolgst - hast du nun auch bei mir vorbeigeschaut und (d)einen Kommentar hinterlassen. Merci beaucoup. Kommunikationstechnisch scheinst du dich ja in mindestens drei Sprachen zu Hause zu fühlen, aber Deutsch scheint doch deine Muttersprache zu sein, wie mir die zahlreichen Kommentare unter deinen Posts verraten. Du hast ja bereits auf meiner "Wohnzimmercouch namens you-wee's groupies" Platz genommen. Welcome and enjoy. Einen Espresso oder einen griechischen Mokka vielleicht...?
    Gruß aus dem frühherbstlichen Deutschland,
    Uwe.
