Early this month we went on a tour of Greece under Globus. As we were in Athens before the start of the tour, we had the chance to wander around the city on our own.

I had before the trip got the Nikon D700 and despite its heft, it had to be brought along to test its capabilty. Wanting to sniper some street scenes, I got the Nikkor 70-300VR to accompany the camera. You can check out some of the street shots here, mostly in Syntagma Square and the nearby Plaka area.
