Without pictures we wouldn’t be able to see the disaster. Living here in Greece for 11 years, my question is WHY ON EARTH is this Greek woman trying to get into her car? or, if she is trying to get out, why didn’t she just keep driving to safety before the water rose so high. AND if it rose so quickly (because that is a possibility) why would she choose to open the door and not open the window to climb out? What’s the story behind this picture exactly? OR was she trying to save her car (because I know a Greek would think to do that) Seems to be the perfect example of the non-existence of common sense here in Greece which is “while in a state of disaster the people contribute to creating more disaster”. And it breaks my heart because I am Greek and, having grown up abroad, I understand that I am more Greek than the Greeks here. It seems the majority do not follow rules here, do not believe in safety (because they feel they are immortal), and almost everybody do not have Common Sense in their DNA (or common courtesy, or common decency). With that said, and on a much lighter note, I am glad to see that people actually took the time to help her – even the photographer who told his story. You don’t see that too much in daily living here, even in emergency situations. which is another issue that breaks my heart too…

Feels like a hero taking pictures and directing actual heroes.

Its nice to have the story and the pictures. That is the job of a journalist. But I think those two guys could have used a third hand.

I would like to know you….ever
