SNFCC: a first view

802_8693 [SNFCC Cultural Center]

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center [above] was opened to the public in 2017. It is a complex that houses the National Library of Greece, the Greek National Opera and many other facilities. It is a well-visited structure.

The picture above shows my own first sight of the Center while I was approaching it one early evening.

Peribatodes ilicaria

300_6550 [Peribatodes ilicaria]

This moth landed on the balcony of my apartment rather too often lately;
so often that I eventually couldn’t’ resist grabbing the camera for a quick shot.
Enjoy the “culprit”.
