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.

fires, again

five years ago, greece was ravaged by numerous, intense forest fires, and our incompetent, government looked on, unable to do anything to cope.

today, that same party wanted the greek vote again, as new fires burned too close to homes, having destroyed several.

fires, again

smoke on the water:

fires again

i was at cape sounion for the afternoon yesterday. i saw a helicopter gather salt water to fight the fire in southeastern attiki, but in the several hours i was there, the smoke remained undiminished.

i was visiting, intending to shoot a long exposure. it was all very distressing, but i went ahead and took a few shots.
