Syros, St Dimitrios church yard bells, Greece
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME
And the twin bells are going to sound on St.Dimitrios Day (which is on October 26....is it same for you?) and let the world know that it is peace around! I like the way they are built to sing to the sky and the sea. The pedestal has an interesting patterning of stones.

@Chantal: merci bien
Clever title, clever photo I very much like the angle you have chosen for this shot, even the angle of the sun is for me just right casting a shadow of the bell, as if in a window. I see it ia your day soon Dimitrios.

@christine: haha nowhere, its like this haha, greetings
I don't know EVERYTHING...I know very little indeed! BUT...I am an Orthodox and I know that the Romanian Orthodox Church is very close to the Greek Orthodox Church and, with some local differences only, we celebrate the same saints.

@Japanalia: Celebrating saints is only a good thing, and I like celebrations!
Greetings to both in Japan*
