Remember a few days ago I had Visited the last Liberty Ship in Piraeus Port. I Had started my visit to the port to photograph some graffiti and old buildings. 
What really caught my eye was two massive abandoned buildings with big external metal stairs that looked like they came from the 50s.

Then I noticed a homeless guy living under the entrance of a huge,out of order elevator. He had all his belongings in that opening. An old Christmas tree caught my eye. Before i set up my gear he somehow disappeared.

Another co-resident of this guy seem to be a fat cat.I thing Ports are famous,among other things for their rats.
The building had signs of old graffiti .The metal doors and windows where beaten up and rusty.

Opposite this building next to “Hellas Liberty” it was a complex of buildings which I couldn’t find access,with some massive graffiti.

At the end of this side of the port you could see people fishing…

Or just enjoying the Sun…
