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.
Time seems to be flying by around here. It is the tenth of the month and you know what that means. Yes it is time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. This time we have gotten together to share flower related ideas. Last month we shared beauty and fashion ideas.
Today I am sharing photos of 12 varieties of stunning flowers that grow in my neighborhood. Now if there is one thing you, my regular readers, know about me, it's that I have a brown thumb. I am terrible at keeping things alive. So when this idea came along I really struggled with it.
Be sure to scroll all the way down to see what my blogging friends came up with this month.
About a month ago I took a trip down to Greenwich Village, home of my alma mater, New York University. And while I was busy gawking at all the buildings my daughter had a chance to take some actual photos which I'd like to share with you today.
Because truth be told she is the better photographer in the house! And she is showing us some interesting things to see in New York's Greenwich Village.
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.
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.
