The museum in Thessaloniki, Greece is a wonder to see. The caption that accompanies this photo in my photo book is: "Be convinced that to be happy means to be free and that to be free means to be brave. Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war", Thucydides. I do wish there were alternatives to war, our world needs this. Aside from that, I find that I am in too much of a rush when snapping photos, wish there had been more clarity here, I need to slow down! Thanks for viewing and commenting. Appreciate it.

Vicki, in this fast-paced world, people tend to get ahead of themselves and overlook the beauty of things. You tell us in your narrative that it also happens to you when taking pictures. Apparently this photograph is an exception that proves the rule. A good and very interesting photograph that has been provided with a suitable caption by you.
By the way, I agree with you more than 100% that war is not the solution to the problems facing humanity. It's time for certain leaders to realize that as well!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

It looks like an old Notre Dame football helmet. I agree with you about the world's happenings. Your photo is very good with a dark background and golden accents.

This helmet looks as it may have seen battle and it is a fine shot. At that time it seems like constant war was the way but they were fighting for their freedom.

Excellent capture, Vicki. I've been to this museum, rich and beautiful, like many others in Greece. I love archeology.
