Olympic Games Athens | THE PHOTOKITCHEN

A slightly different photo walk; post olympia in Athens.

You can still explore a lot of 2004 – abondoned – olympic venues.

Every four years, the world’s best athletes gather for their chance at gold in the Olympic Games.

For only a few short weeks, these Olympic communities are bustling, playing host to droves of athletes and the structures they need to compete, eat, and sleep in.

After the games, the locations turn into so called lost places.
A great possibility for you to capture nice shots.
