Lycabettus, Athens - Red colour’s revolution

The spectators' look is being vibrated all around the frame, without settling down somewhere.

If someone goes to Lycabettus right after the sunset, he'll be surprised by the pictures he will see. As darkness spreads the impersonal buildings of Athens disappear and the eye goes up to the sky which is set on fire by the colours. The only human creation one can see there is the silhouette of Acropolis.

The sky in the foreground

There is no man in the world who hasn't loved the dusk with its warm colours. At those moments the eye is being captured by the abundant red colour that fills the sky
Acropolis with Saronic Bay in the background.and breaks the rules of chromatic harmony. In every image, there is always something in the foreground that captures the spectator’s eye and the sky is the background that absorbs the look like a thick carpet.

Right after the sunset in the horizon, the picture's main subject is fading and the sky comes in the foreground. During the few minutes remaining until the darkness completely falls, the conventional aesthetics is being reversed and the human look is being vibrated around the whole frame, without settling down somewhere.

At those moments the viewers can be easily subjected and, regardless their age, they feel like children who look for a warm embrace to bask in. This brief coordination between the eye and the celestial firmament is like an explosive love, offering strong thrill that's not going to last, that someone can't get enough of, no matter how many times it happens to him.
