RPPC I've had for a while--no identifying information ---but the Greek theme suits.  (We left Rhodes today, now in fuggy grey tourist-packed London.)  Yesterday--at the Temple of Athena on the rocky peak above the town of Lindos--we scrabbled over countless ancient stones and broken columns very like those in the background here.   Lindos a wind-swept mystery, high above the blue Aegean, and surely one of the most captivating sights this indefatigable tourist has ever seen.  Blue wildflowers, yellow too.

The actor here wearing the mask of old ruined blind Oedipus, of course--Oedipus at Colonus.  The element of photo-uncanniness: the very young-looking arms of the actor.  As in Exquisite Cadavers game, head and arms seem to come from different beings.
