I love flowers! I prefer to see them and smell them and admire them when they are in a garden, but since I don’t have my own garden yet, I can’t say no to a bouquet of them. So, when this morning I visited the flea market in the nearest town and I saw those chrysanthemums I immediately fell in love, I couldn’t take my eyes of them and I knew I would regret it if I hadn’t bought them. So now they are in a vase making my home more beautiful!
Lately, I’m in a period of my life where I would love to be closer with my dearest people. Of course, this is quite difficult since I live some hundreds of miles away.
Since I can’t go visit them, for at least one month time, I’m here starring at the images from my hometown I shot the last time I was there. These in particular, are from the castle of village, where, as a child, I was spending many many afternoons playing around with my friends.
I feel so lucky to have memories like these!
When I was living in Athens I always had an urge to street photography. For me, it represents the most authentic style of photography. You capture a moment that happened only once and will never happen again. You cannot recreate it, you cannot ask for a repeat. You captured it, great; you didn’t, sorry but you had your chance. For that I admire so much those who have mastered the art. So far I’m not one of those. If I have a couple of “good” shots is due to luck. I know I could have a ton more, because I have many times regret for not taken a photo, but one needs guts to do so.
Anyways. Since I’m still in bed and spend countless hours of browsing through pinterest I thought it could be a good idea to share some inspiration with you.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m stuck in bed for a few days due to a medical condition. So I was wondering all this time. What can I do to be creative and productive? And then it hit me. I have a ton of images I shot during all these years I do photography, which I never published a) because I thought they suck b) because I was too lazy to edit and c) because I didn’t have a real editing program. So now that I cannot shot new images and have a lot of time -literally- and an Adobe Photography subscription -AT LAST!!!!- it’s time for me to go back, review all the photos one by one, choose the ones I feel I can do something with them, practice my editing skills and at the same time posting here, on instagram (@thearcadiangirl) and on pinterest (Stamina Scar) -btw, you should find in other social media and connect in more ways!-
So my first few edited photos are these black and white. Who doesn’t love it after all? It’s like transfering to another time, like it’s giving this special feeling to the image. Plus it can make an image from okay interesting actually -and most of the time takes less time to edit. What can I do, I’m a pretty lazy person-.
What do you think?
Being stuck in bed right now, with a temperature of 20 Celsius outside in mid November, is the last thing I wanted/needed right now.
Have you ever been to the point you have so many dreams and plans and then everything scrambles down like a tower of cards? And then you realise it happened for a good reason, but yet once again you are too close to lose everything for one more time? Well, I know that doesn’t even make sense, right? I hope that soon I’ll be able to explain everything.
Anyways, since I’m stuck in bed and I can do nothing else than change sides -doctor’s ordrers- I thought the best thing I can do is sprend hours on pinterest and find loads of inspiration for when I get back on my feet again, and why not share this inspiration with you!
Today’s search was all about autumn that hopefully will remember to come in my area too, unless we as humanity have already f***ed up the climate for good -scientists claim that we have and the worst;there is no turning back anymore-.
All pictures I found them on Pinterest -find me as Stamina Scar- and if you happen to know the owner message me to give credits!
Have a wonderful weekend folks!!
Lately, I’ve started enjoying photograph with long exposures. It all started when I was in my hometown, in late September, and one night I decided to wake up before sunrise the next morning and head to the beach. And, surprisingly, I did wake up at 6 o’clock and went at the beach and my only regret is not taking my Nikon with me to this trip. The result is the image above which I captured with my smartphone and uploaded on instagram and soon enough it was the most loved image in my profile, can you believe that?
So as soon as I came but in Crete I grabbed my Nikon and the rest is history. But, oh dear, There as so many places I want to photograph with long exposure. I think that I just found my passion!!
