Capturing the uniqueness of moments in the streets of our cities.
Snowstorm in Thessaloniki
Spring in Exarchia
A sample of the beauty that Spring brings to the city of Athens.
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.
Malli this grias
Malli tis grias, one of the most typical Greek sweets and the favorite of many children. It is usually sold in small kiosks in fairs and other places and its only ingredient is sugar which gets melted in a special pot and then spinned in high velocity around a wooden stick.
Snowflakes in the air, dark, moody clouds and the streets glimmering with reflections. I just couldn’t get enough of the urban environment in Thessaloniki and its transformation with the snowfall.
Smile & kiss, it's good for you
Where old meets new

A French gentleman
Who said that a gentleman can only be British?
It's a cat or an ant?

A flowery view of Thessaloniki
A warm atmospheric evening at Aristotelous square. Street musicians, filling the air with their tones, the sky playing with the colors of the clouds and people going by each to their destination. Being in a rush, few of them of ever stop to look around and feel the moment. Beauty is everywhere around you if you have the clarity to see it. Stop, take a big breath, look around you, observe, enjoy.
Spring, bringing beauty to anything it touches
Lucky to be in the right place the right moment, with the sun shedding it's soft light on these white flowers, adding even more beauty to the already stunning background.
It's all about perception. Look at the things around you in the most creative kind of way.
Preparing to feed the people's neverending appetite for alcohol and dancing, the bars close to Valawritou street are slowly opening their doors. One by one they come to life, and the whole neighborhood transforms into a cocktail of music, colors and people.
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.
Riders on the storm
Long exposure in Paris
A staggering building, some car lights and a low shutter speed. The perfect recipe for a beautiful shot.
Lost in Amsterdam
She is lost. Lost in Amsterdam.
Few of these guys exist nowadays, but I certainly hope they won't stop doing their job as they give a rainbow of colors to the grey streets around us.
Blossoming bus stop
Spring is the time of the year when even our old, crumbling bus stops seem beautiful, vintage and cool.
