Shooting smoke for fun!

Looking at the second picture, I think I can see a dancing ghost having a man’s head and a woman’s delicate right arm raised. On his/her left I’m almost sure I can see a dolphin.

Are they actually there or am I hallucinating?!?!? [No drugs involved! I swear!!!]

The University of Athens: The historic building

IMG_0601 [The University of Athens]

  The pictured historic building of the University of Athens is situated in the heart of the city. It was designed in the 19th-century by the Danish architect Hans Christian Hansen (1803-1883) as part of the so-called “Athenian trilogy” of neoclassical buildings consisting of the University of Athens in the middle, the National Library on the left and The Academy on the right. Once, it housed all University services but today its use is restricted to housing the Rectorate, the Senate and the Great Hall of Ceremonies.
