Beautifully marbled

It’s referred to as the Panathinaiko (stadium of the Athenians) or Καλλιμάρμαρο (kallimarmaro) — “beautifully marbled.” Indeed it is. Maximum intent, minimal means. The elegant information graphics are barely there. Each section rises vertically from the track with a single letter or numeral.


  1. The blue color as well as the gorgeous ball-terminals on those numerals is amazing. Did you capture the full set? Wonderful imagery and discourse, as usual!

  2. Yes, aren’t they amazing! I photographed every one of them: 1 through 25, and a few letters. Maybe I’ll post to Flickr.
