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.

embiggen, if you must.

no.. not his. mine.

the greek people are being asked told to sacrifice, yet this kind of nonsense continues to plague the country.

no, i don't understand -- and i hope i never do.

this is a statue of archbishop damaskinos papandreou on mitropoleos square in athens, greece, geotagged... and, of course, the image is no reflection on the person.

his personality is irrelevant.

somehow, greek public life must extricate itself from its religious institutions.

  1. some are compelled by their beliefs..
    instilled by fear I suppose,helen, to
    sacrifice,believing they will be rewarded in the end...
    but how can you change hundreds of years of that?
