It is deceivingly easy to find your way in Amsterdam. So easy in fact that in the end you’re bound to get lost. This is what a hairdresser from Jordaan explained to me when we were having lunch at one of the charming terraces along the Singel. Later that day, and the next day, I...

The sky was so blue, so clear. In the crisp autumn air it was easy to breathe, to organize my thoughts in their proper slots. Everything seemed to make sense. Was there something in me that said it was an illusion? It was so easy not to listen to it. For a second I almost remembered...

In this beautiful fragile world We take time to appreciate The disregarded and ignored The neglected and undervalued Before the staggering treasure We fall on our knees Gasping for breath in awe Our hearts tangled with affection Your hand in mine We pause and breathe In our quest to preserve The most...

Up in this latitude, a November walk starts with a sunrise and ends in a sunset. There’s no time to go over today’s schedule or fix a quick lunch when the few rare rays of light pierce through pines and spruces. You have to seize the moment. Soak in the daylight. Nevermind the ‘what if...

Years pass by quickly, for me the previous one in particular. Life has tried to pull me to other directions besides photography, but I’ve decided to fight it, and since last summer I have had the opportunity to reconnect with my camera. I have had this blog for eight years now, and to start the...

There is something special in the leisure hours of a lazy Sunday. There is no hurry, the time and the turning of the wheels of the world seem to have ceased altogether. If you listen very carefully, the noises of Monday or Tuesday have disappeared. There are only the comforting, happy and soft sounds of...

It was like leaving home when we left Koufonisia. There were hugs and kisses, “Kalo taxidis!”, and when we came back to Naxos we were greeted with “Welcome back home!”. Two fantastic places that could easily steal your heart. Some people live here. They see the sea every morning, and every evening. They feel the sea breeze...
