Vintage photo: Milos's Throne at Knossos

 
This photo is from a lot which appear to all be by the same young photographer (pictured) who was on a tour of Southern Europe, possibly under the auspices of a photography club. The photos all appear to be self-developed and he appears himself in a small number of them but this one I like best, for the hubris really. It is titled on the back, "Myself on Milos's throne at Knossos" - I'm guessing that these days one isn't allowed to simply plonk your backside down on the throne and take pictures.

Great photo. But Myself should known that it's Minos' throne.

I think Zeus would forgive the hubris of such a dashing Ganymede. I hope we'll see more of him!
