This photo essay has been in the works for almost a year. It was photos I took of a local beachfront in Greece a few weeks before we left.
I started to work on it many times but I could never get very far. Maybe I needed to be in the season to edit it. Well, that time of the year has finally come, and I can share a different look at the beach in beautiful Greece. Also a bit of my thought process on how I put these photo essays together.
It is my favorite time of the month, the International Bloggers Club Challenge. We are a group of friends from all over the world who get together every month to share our projects and discuss how things are done in our countries. Last time we shared projects that were made using wire. And the month before it was projects for gardening.
This month we are going to work with rocks or in my case pebbles. The beaches in my area in Greece are not full of sand but full of pebbles instead. So when I think of pebbles I think of the beach. I am going to use pebbles to inspire my love of the beach.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Many of you may not know this but our Easter, for the Eastern Orthodox Church, is one week later than the Western Christian Easter. You see each year they change it around and once every four years we have it on the same day.
So we are celebrating Easter this Sunday for it is the holiest of holidays. And to celebrate I want to share the interior of Saint Andrew's Cathedral with you. You may have already seen the exterior in this post. But I wanted to save the interior for a separate post.
When spring rolls around it is magical in Greece. The trees bloom and the streets all smell like a florist shop because everyone has flowers everywhere.
It is also a time of reawakening and celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. I find that this is my favorite time of the year to go to church. There is a special feeling that permeates the liturgies which are usually held in the evenings leading up to Easter. With all these sweet memories knocking around in my brain I thought I'd take you back to put a spotlight on the impressive Saint Andreas or Andrew's Cathedral in Patra, Greece.
In this photo essay we will be exploring the exterior of the church and next month I'll be sharing the interior which deserves a post all it's own.
Welcome! Today I am celebrating! My third blog anniversary or as we sometimes call it blogoversary. I finally made it to three years and I must say I am very surprised. It has been a long road and a tough one at that. Last year I shared my favorite posts with you and I wanted to do that now but...doors got in the way!
Yes doors, that's how we celebrate around here! One door opens while another one closes. And so it goes!
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
