Coloring the water

      I haven’t blog a proper post for ages. Now I feel so good to finally doing it!
      Yesterday, I felt so creative, but I was not in the mood to go out and take pictures (since most of the times I do some cityscape photography). All day I wanted to do something but I didn’t know what, until I open one of the kitchen cupboards and I saw the food colors!! Then it hit me, I would use glass and water and these colors in a white background. But… I need light. So, I found a light bulb and put it on a stand. But… again… it was too bright and wasn’t lighting in the way I wanted it to. So, I took some white paper, wrapped it around the bulb and… voilà!
     So now that you know the story, let’s just take a minute and admire the beautiful shades red, blue and yellow form! You can see green, purple and some brown. I like it so much and for the first time (almost) I’m really pleased with the final result of my creativity!
Anyway, do remember, you can create so beautiful things with the things you already have in your home. The only thing you need is imagination!!

P.S.: I have a timelapse-kind-of video from this, I will try to post it soon!

Colours of Crete| Balos

Hello dreamers! The radio silence has come to an end. I came back from my holidays on Crete on Saturday and after visiting my family I spent all night yesterday editing photos for the blog. So prepare yourselves for a serious amount of posts! Here is the first location I visited on early August.

It is Balos on the North-west side of Crete. It is one of the most mesmerizing places I have ever been to. The view from the montain, before you walk down to the beach, it is just breathtaking (this is why I recommend visiting by car and not by one of the boats, to enjoy the view!) Although I do reccomend visiting by car you have to be aware that the walking-down-the-hill and then up-the-hill is one of the most difficult things I have ever done . But still, it definetely worths and I would definitely do it again and again.

The water is crystal clear  (as you can see from my latest post here) and it is as cold as it has to be to cool you down in the heat of the summer. I was lucky enough to visit the place early in the morning, before the crowds of tourist come and fill the place!!

Hope you enjoy the pictures and stay tuned for more!!

All photos and editing by me.

Since with my Friday’s post I started my throw back to last summer and until I have time to walk around Athens with my camera for a project I am thinking for a long time, I thought it was worth it to post these pictures from a weekend in Agistri ( a small island about an hour sailing from Athens) last June where I went camping with some friends. These photos were shot while sun was setting, and I found really magnificent the colours of the sky and the sea at that time of the day.

As you may have already realise (from here, here and here and a whole lot of other posts!) I love the sun, the sea, the sky. It is hard to explain with words how I feel every time I look at the sky in the morning or during the sunset (these two are my favourite times of the day!) Or how I feel and I go get to visit my parents or spend some time in the beach with my friends. Or even how I feel during the winter when the sky is filled with clouds which are coloured in so beautiful pastels! I know, my perspective is so romantic, but I cannot help it, I live in Greece and we have a lot of sun, sea, clear blue sky or sky filled with beautiful pastel coloured clouds!! oh….

Endless blue.

This one is a picture I shot a weekend last May while I was at my hometown to visit my parents! The endless blue, the clouds, the sea, the sky. I am so in love with my country, Greece! And to tell you the truth I cannot wait for summer to come and go vacations around the aegean and ionian sea!

What are your plans about this summer? Are you going to come in Greece?
