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.

towards the acropolis -- that-a-way

oh, yay... another shot of the acropolis from lycabettus hill. imagine every tourist visiting the hill takes exactly the same shot -- it was hard just finding a place to shoot among the crowd.

we missed the sunset itself but the blue hour was spectacular. the night was clear after bad weather on saturday -- this view includes the acropolis, syngrou and piraios streets leading towards the shore, faliro and pireaus to the right edge, the sea with a necklace of boats, and far off, glimpses of aegina island and the peloponnese.

i've added this image to the map.

btw, i didn't use a tripod for this -- i used my nifty little green pod!
