According to a recent news article all modern photos of the Parthenon are about to be obsolete.

From the Athens News Agency:
Parthenon restoration completed: Scaffolding will be removed from the Parthenon Facade during the next few days and visitors will be able to view the restored largest part of the marble roof with its friezes that made the monument, the work of the architect Mnisiklis, renowned in ancient times.

It seems that whenever and wherever I travel there are major structures with scaffolding around them. I guess it is good that they are being worked on; yet it never seems to end.

Please comment with your experiences. Especially if you know of a major attraction that has scaffolding removed.
