Pinky






She's just over a year old now and we've slowly started to let her explore the outdoors. Her favorite thing to do is to sit on the roof, and I have to admit that I can't blame her. There's a lot to see from up there.

Mediterranean Blue


Along the road - Sithonia, Halkidiki 

Summer is here and we're thoroughly enjoying the beauty of Greece. Here are a few shots from our recent adventures.

Black Kitten



 An adorable black kitten that lives with local fishermen. Cute!

Mt. Olympus at Sunset



Now that the weather has started to improve, I'm taking more walks along the sea. For as long as I've been here I still can't get enough of the sunsets that we have in Greece. Now, my children are in love with sunsets too. If I'm busy and there's a gorgeous sunset, Izabella will make me stop what I'm doing and join her on the balcony to stand together in silence as we take photos and witness the magical colors as they disappear beyond Mt. Olympus.

From the Passenger Seat...







"What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce."
~ Karl Lagerfeld ~ 




When I'm a passenger, I'm usually quiet and I keep busy.  My camera is always on my lap. I captured this beautiful moment while riding along the seafront in Thessaloniki.

Curious Kittens



Our neighbor's cat recently had kittens and as you might imagine, the kids love to spend time with them. Here are a few cute shots of an evening with the kittens as they begin explore the world around them.

August Sunset

 
The winds have changed and the temperature is bearable which means that summer is coming to a close. Although, I refuse to admit that it's  almost over because I don't think I've had enough. It's never enough.  I hear friends and neighbors wishing one another "Καλό φθινόπωρο" (Good Autumn) and I refuse to accept that another beautiful summer is near its end. I took this photo just a  little over one week ago and it was comfortable to be sitting on the beach after the sun had set. As much as I love autumn, I'm hoping for another short heat wave.

Pella



This summer has been so beautiful and memorable. Having a friend visit from home has given me the chance to share what I love most about living in Greece and also, the chance to explore places I've never been to. One of those places I'd never been to before this summer is Pella. This is a photo that I took as the sun was setting beyond Pella. There's a little lens flare here,  but this is one of my favorite photos from our evening at Pella... it reminds me of how magical the site is.
