Photo of the Day in "The Guardian" is a Greek Priest


Today, Friday 11 January 2013, The Guardian featured a Greek Orthodox priest in the metro station in Athens as its picture of the day. (Click on picture to enlarge)

It is a play on shapes captured by AFP photographer Aris Messinis. This bench, at the Larissa stop of the metro, gives the impression that every seat is a man, until it finally comes to a Greek priest who is seated at the end. The bench is actually a piece of art created by John Gaitis (d. 1984), who created a series of works titled "Lonely Men" (Μοναχικά Ανθρωπάκια).
