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'd 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!
A month ago I had to go to New York's Lower Manhattan to take care of some business with my son and when we were finished he suggested that we should walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. After all it was right there waving at us.
And that is exactly what we did. Today I'd like to take you along with us ... on a tour of the astonishing Brooklyn Bridge walkway.
It has been more than a while since I last shared my "Photos of the Day" with you that I upload on Facebook every month. These are from the month of November and December. And they were all picked by you! This is my way of saying "thank you" to all of my followers.
Things were very busy around here during the holidays. But also the changes over on Facebook make it pretty certain that you will probably not see them since the social media giant is promoting friends and family and not pages. And so since you are not seeing them on Facebook I thought this would be a good time to announce that this will be my last "Photo of the Day| collection.
But fear not, I will continue to post photography. After all there is always so much to see in New York. And I even have some photos from Greece. And if you'd like to see them you can always follow along on my photo posts here.
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.
