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.

a turn of axes

a turn of axesview on black

(edit: i decided i prefer it in BW)

the uppermost level of the new acropolis museum turns slightly to align itself with the parthenon. inside, the columns, metopes and sculptures are placed to correspond with their original posiitons, and one can see the parthenon directly through the tall glass.

this shot is from the east, at makrigianni street, as i left, having had a nice coffee with photographer friends at the museum's cafe.

i photographed the museum's interior when it was still possible to do so (they've since restricted photography inside) and wrote up a few thoughts on my blog post here. you can see the view of the acropolis from this shot.
