THE STOA OF ATTALOS (2)

By dimalexa
Saturday Shadows - Series: ARCHITECTURE
The Stoa of Attalos used to be a commercial center in the present sense. It was built around 150 BC by Atalos II, King of Pergamon, after his donation to Athens, of which it was the largest independent building on its length. It was renovated in 1953-1956 by the American School of Classical Studies. It is located in the area of the Ancient Agora of Athens.
Here is a second view of the interior of the ground floor. Another view, uploaded on 21/03/2020, is here.

Great long shadows, well seen.
I may have considered a crop from the right here, to remove that bg peering into the frame. Then all you would be left with are the shadows and the never ending walkway.

A wonderful b&w image and composition. Thank you for the information. The colour version gives the scale but this one concentrates the aesthetic architectural nature and beauty of form and line, accentuated by the shadows and light..

Wonderful light & shadows..
Great shadows, pattern, repetition...and what is really interesting is what the shadows do down near the end, almost looks like a diffraction pattern.

This is a beautiful photo, Dimitris. All my awards gone.

And, of course, this being when it is, with no people.
