Photographer's Note

Athens lies on the plain of Attica, dominated by Mount Ćgialée west, Mount Parnitha to the north, Mount Lycabettus northeast (part of chain Penteli), Mount Hymettus in the east, and the Saronic Gulf in the southwest. Because of these inherent limitations, is unlikely to see the city spread much more than it is today. Moreover, the geomorphology of Athens contributes significantly to air pollution problems it suffers today (Los Angeles in the United States experienced the same geomorphology and the same consequences).
The land is rocky and infertile. The ancient city was built at the foot of the Acropolis. In ancient times to the early twentieth
century, the port of Piraeus (Greek Pireas) was a distinct town but is now part of the city.
