Welcome to my WordPress blog! I know that the time you have is little and precious, so I hope and wish that after going through my photos, you get the most for the time you have spent. Feel free to leave any kind of comment, suggestion or even a good idea for a project, a trip or a work!
Even though it is not in my character, I started this blog, for two reasons. To send my photos out there to the world with the hope of communication and as a motivation to keep clear away from the depressing feeling that comes along with the economic crisis in Greece.
One photo or post, each day, new or from my archives!
