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.

inside the téléphérique

inside the téléphérique

i was very pleased to meet up with my friend, jonathan shock, in athens today. a mixture of friends and family enjoyed a kebab lunch, coffee and a visit to lycabettus hill to take pictures of the acropolis at sunset.

you can walk up the hill, i guess, and supposedly you can drive as well... but we took the ride on the téléphérique, or cable car, which is accessed from kolonaki. there are two small cars, dodging each other midway, that climb the slanted tracks for a short ride up (or down, as the case may be). the tunnel is painted blue and the light and dark alternated beautifully.

i placed this image on the map.


  1. I'm impressed that you got this shot with such low light (and on a car?). How did you do it?

  2. high ISO, steady hands :-)
