The Parthenon

A hard to get photo of the entire Acropolis of Athens. The antiquities of Greece need to be protected and available to all, two goals at war with each other. The acropolis in Athens is a good example of the difficulties. Are parts of the buildings to be displayed in a covered area or in their original location in the weather? Are they to be displayed in Athens or in a more convenient location There is no perfect solution but travel photographs can illustrate the difficulties and insure that the problem is discussed from different points of view.
