My Favorite Photos of 2018 - Changing of the Guard / by Ed Shanahan

The Changing of the Guards in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma Square, Athens, Greece is a major drawer. The Evzones, a special unit of the Hellenic Army, dress in colorful costumes stock with symbolism and are the center of attention. Lesser know or photographed are the members of the Hellenic Army who participate in an elaborate ceremony that occurs only once per week. Here is a behind the scenes look at the unit as it marches towards the Square at full attention.
