Parthenon Marble In Green

I'm still processing shots from my trip to Athens in April. I hope you like this most recent one to make it out of the digital darkroom.

Glass marbles

I liked the idea of making this into an artefact. When I was a kid, I heard the words "elgin marbles" but it wasn't til much later I knew what it was all about. In the meantime, the only marbles I knew of were the round glass ones we used in our childhood games (remember playing for "keepsies"?)

So as a nod to me as a child, my intent was to merge the two ideas and give this shot a treatment that would be reminiscent of glass, under-lit for drama.

Does it look like it's made of glass to you? What about the interplay between the figure and the horses—is something almost mystical going on, do you think?

I hope you find something to like about it :)
