Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge : Week 27 : Vintage

Lefkas, Greek Islands

Old drinking fountain in Lefkas, Greece

I thought that this was a perfect example of Vintage, it’s a drinking water tap in the town of Lefkas (Lefkada) in the Greek Islands,   The brass part is the head of a snake or serpent, and when you turn the tap on, the water comes out of the snake’s mouth.     When we were busy taking photos, a group of Greek men sitting outside a taverna across the street thought we were having trouble turning on the tap, and started giving us instructions,  to us it was a fascinating piece of equipment, but to them it’s just a normal everyday thing!

I am sure that the serpent and the lion is some part of Greek mythology, it might be a Chimera, which, according to Wiki:

a fire breathing three-headed monster with one head of lion, one of a snake, and another of a goat, lion claws in front and goat legs behind

Happy water drinking!!

Daily Prompt : Sky

Summer’s here, and that means (most of the time) blue skies and long evenings.   I think that’s not the case in a lot of Europe at the moment though, where it seems to be rain, rain and more rain.

Here are a few blue skies from our recent travels in Greece

Sailing in Greece

Nothing moving, so it must be siesta time.

Sometimes a cloud or two appears in the sky

Sometimes a cloud or two appears in the sky, maybe it’s time to secure the crockery!!
