Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance

Picture of guard changing at Syntagma Square

It takes some balls to look like a badass while wearing pom-poms on one’s shoes and a long tassel from one’s hat. The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier takes place in Syntagma Square near the Parliament Building in Athens, Greece. The costume changes depending on the time or the year. Learning about the history of Greek clothing in various museums was one of the more pleasant surprises of my vacation. Alas, those high-stepping soldiers were prone to flashing some inner-thigh during their “dance” I’ve picked to feature for this week’s photo challenge, but I have spared you the details and left them with their dignity.

  1. Great picture! I love seeing that writing on the back wall. Both of the soldiers have different facial and body expressions. The one on the right is much more serious and straight, and the other looks like he’s in pain. So I’m guessing, like the Scots, that they don’t wear underwear under those skirts. 😀
