Crysanthemums

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!

Memories

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!

Inspiration| Autumn

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!!

Long exposure

thearcadiangirl_longexposure1

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!!

Wild beauty

     As you might already noticed if you follow me on instagram ( @thearcadiangirl ) –if you don’t, what are you waiting for? Let’s connect!!I did it!! I moved in Crete about 2 weeks ago, and gosh, it feels so great!
     When I was in Athens talking about this step was like talking for a dream of mine. Something that I want but it’s so distant, or even something is  not going to happen! But it did happen and I couldn’t be more happy about it. Having this view a 5 minute drive from my home, or having the most beautiful beach ever just 30 minutes away is paradise for me!
     The best part of course is that here I have a ton of interesting and different things to photograph, I regret every minute I don’t have my dslr with me. But, you know what? This why I bought the Oneplus X smartphone last year; to have an amazing camera to work with when I don’t have my heavy and not so comfy-to-carry dslr.

     If you want more often updates follow me on instagram @thearcadiangirl, plus if you are passionate with photography like me I would like to see your work and connect in more ways with you!
