One of my favorite shots from my stay in Athens as I believe it clearly the unique moments of life in the city.
Thessaloniki has tons of cool urban places to experiment with photography but this one has been one of my favourites for a long time now. While wondering around the city, I stopped under the bridge to see how a shot like this would look. The result delighted me.
The lights of the passing cars get beautifully combined with the urban landscape near this bridge, making this one of my favourite urban shots in Thessaloniki.
The first black and white experiment
Sky on fire
The skies caught fire every evening in New Orleans. It felt an explosion was happening every time the sun went down. An explosion of colors, playful shadows and warm, embracing light leaving you speechless in front of its beauty. It's a beautiful world, we live in!

Full Pink Moon
In ancient times, it was common to track the seasons by the lunar calendar (as opposed to the solar calendar, which came later). Like the Worm Moon, native people once observed the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon. Time was not recorded by using the months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. As a result, many of the traditional names come from the Native Americans who interacted with American Colonists. April’s full Moon is called the Full Pink Moon heralding the appearance of the “moss pink,” or wild ground phlox—one of the early spring flowers. Other names include the Sprouting Grass Moon the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.

The man with the umbrella
The minutes just after a rain stops are some of my favourite moments to photograph and enjoy what is around me both in nature and at a city. The smell of wet soil, the clouds on the sky and the cool air give me a feeling of freedom that it's hard to describe.
I was sitting on a bench, enjoying this feeling when I noticed this man passing in front of me with his umbrella. I loved the way his figure blended with clouds, rain, sunset and ship on the background and I took a picture using the trees to frame the image.
The sunsets of Thessaloniki truly never stop to amaze me.

Lovers of Tbilisi

The subway of New York is a place where you can see all sorts of people and faces.
I got captivated by this lady from the moment she entered the train as her face seemed like it had seen some truly rough times. When she stood next to the tired, sleeping man on the right I waited for a few seconds for her face's reflection to show up on the glass door and took the photo.
It induces a feeling of melancholy to me but at the same time it kind of shows the raw reality of how hard it is to make a living in the times we live in.

Into the future
Laid back Thessaloniki
Thessaloniki is known across Greece for its laid-back atmosphere and lifestyle. The people here like to enjoy their coffee for as long as they can, with some even staying at their favourite cafe for more than 2 hours. Be it for discussing problems, work, having fun or flirting, coffee is like a ritual to us. With friends, family or partner, it is something that fuels our every-daylives. So next time you visit Thessaloniki take someone you enjoy spending time with, grab a coffee and just relax.

Spring is the time of the year when even our old, crumbling bus stops seem beautiful, vintage and cool.
