new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

in pairs

when mentioning chios, one inevitably hears a famous colloquial phrase in greece that says 'people in chios always travel in pairs'.

during the ottoman empire, the conquerors used to force people in chios to actually carry them on their shoulders. in order to avoid this humiliation, people would travel in pairs... when they spotted an ottoman turk, one friend would pick the other up -- supposedly the turk had no right to ask the other person to get off to ride in his place.

i spotted this fence with a meandros motif in our vrontados neighborhood on a morning walk. i liked the fence-keh, but out of these three shots, i think i like the elevation shot the best. i posted all three, just because it's such a pretty specimen.
