To the children worldwide. Let me be child...let me run...let me laugh...let me play. 
And most of all, let me be a child!    ...

Let Me Be a Child

Let me know when I make you proud. And Help me to have 
pride in my own accomplishments. Let me earn your trust. Then 
trust me. I won't let you down. Let me try my wings. If I fail, 
let me know it's OK. And encourage me to try again. Let me know 
you love me. With a hug. Or a pat on the back, or when I need it, 
with a firm but gentle "no." Let me be. Let me change Let me 
grow. Let me tell you when I'm feeling bad... or angry… Even at 
you. And let me know that even on my worst days, you still like 
me. Let me dream. Share my joy when my dreams come true. 
Share my tears when they don't. Let me feel secure in my home. 
Help me realize that love is always there … that I can depend on 
you no matter what. Let me run … let me laugh … let me play. 
And most of all, let me be a child!

The temple of Poseidon at Sounion, Greece

The temple of Poseidon was constructed in 444–440 BC, over the ruins of a temple dating from the Archaic Period. It is perched above the sea at a height of almost 60 metres (200 ft). The design of the temple is a typical hexastyle, i.e., it had a front portico with six columns. Only some columns of the Sounion temple stand today, but when intact it would have closely resembled the contemporary and well-preserved Temple of Hephaestus beneath the Acropolis, which may have been designed by the same architect.

As with all Greek temples, the Poseidon building was rectangular, with a colonnade on all four sides. The total number of original columns was 34: 15 columns still stand today. The columns are of the Doric Order. They were made of locally quarried white marble. They were 6.10 m (20 ft) high, with a diameter of 1 m (3.1 ft) at the base and 79 cm (31 inches) at the top.

At the centre of the temple colonnade would have been the hall of worship (naos), a windowless rectangular room, similar to the partly intact hall at the Temple of Hephaestus. It would have contained, at one end facing the entrance, the cult image, a colossal, ceiling-height (6 metres (20 ft)) bronze statue of Poseidon. Probably covered in gold leaf, it may have resembled a contemporary representation of the god, appropriately found in a shipwreck, shown in the figure above. Poseidon was usually portrayed carrying a trident, the weapon he supposedly used to stir up storms. On the longest day of the year, the sun sets exactly in the middle of the caldera of the island of Patroklou, the extinct volcano that lies offshore, suggesting astrological significance for the siting of the temple. The temple of Poseidon was destroyed in 399 by Emperor Arcadius.

Archaeological excavation of the site in 1906 uncovered numerous artifacts and inscriptions, most notably a marble kouros statue known as the Sounion Kouros and an impressive votive relief, both now in the Athens National Archaeological Museum. A column from the temple can be seen in the British Museum.

Introduction
Welcome to Betty Manousos' Page on Google+

"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow." -Imogen Cunningham

I'm an economist, photographer, and blog's owner. 
I started getting seriously into photography in late 2013 when I decided to follow my passion. What started out as part of a hobby has eventually become more of a passion. I think I've caught the photo bug!

#Google+ has fit into my daily online routine as a place to find like-minded people, discuss them and be inspired...and hopefully inspire others.

Oh wait! The thing that really annoys me would have to be someone who wants to be called "Grand Emperor Supreme!".
It drives me crazy when I come across arrogant people. (Read: Insecure, having low self-esteem.) These people are unpleasantly proud and behaving as if they are more important than other people. 

I think if they could rid themselves this trait the world might be a better place.
