Wandering back from the Acropolis on an Easter Saturday while shooting as story on Athens, I happened upon a small outdoor restaurant in Macrygianni where they were roasting a whole lamb on a spit outside. Since it was before the big Easter feast and they were still preparing the meals there was lots of time to focus on details of the restaurant and people. When this musician sat down to play lively tunes on the traditional Greek bouzouki I chose to concentrate on his hands and strumming and to allow a little blur to show the energy of the movement and music.
