Summertime in B&W

These days we are in the heart of summer for us Greeks. Everyone – and I mean everyone!- is away on vacation. I happened to be in Athens these days and I think is the first time I do that..quite interesting I’d say. One of my favorite summer moments and very characteristic is summer midday. Because it has such a power on you! Or just on me maybe…I really enjoy the laziness of summer afternoon. When you feel you have all the time in the world, like time flows more slowly these hours…So, I think these photos depict very well that feeling and in B&W even more!You almost can hear the cicadas…enjoy!

Office of the week

workspaceGood morning friends and happy Monday! As the weather here is sunny and warm enough and I’m in a relaxing mood (the truth is I’m still working regularly but not like the hectic rythm of last month so it’s still relaxing!) I wanted to post today this exquisite workplace. I love everything in this picture! The colors, the rough texture of the wall, the wooden desk-pay extra attention on the 2 legs of one side and drawers on the other- the chair and of course the rug! Also extra color on the desk with this red lamp and the cute vases with beautiful flowers. My favorite element however is this large b&w picture!! Very imposing, don’t you think? I love b&w photos at home offices, they give an artistic, inspiring touch. Just lovely!

I’m not complaining though because today we have the photoshooting of the new offices we made!! I can’t wait! Happy new week!

Valentine’s Day it is and although I said I don’t like the celebration of this day I get the opportunity to express myshelf through some great photos. I’m not negative about that day but I don’t believe that love deserves the way it is used. That’s why I post some photos that speak for and to me . Besides, love is all that matters…isn’t it? I won’t wish you happy valentine’s day, I’ll wish you love such as these great photographers captured!

Vacation time for real

summerserenityAfter one week-intermission from holidays where I was working all day long now it’s time for my real holidays!!! I’ve been waiting for these days like forever…

I’m going to a greek island this time, Kimolos, where I excpect it to be as relaxing and beautiful as I’ve heard and imagine all these hard-horking days! I hope I find the tranquillity I need and the magical beaches to lie all day long…

So, you’ll miss me again for one week but then I will compensate you with photos 🙂
Summer serenity is about to start!
