Carnevale di Venezia

This post is coming a bit late, but I'm pretty sure no one reading this will actually mind, right? I already mentioned in my old post from Venice how much I worship this city. Its grandeur is beyond words, and the Carnival is one of many Venetian events all creative souls and dreamers should experience at least once in their lifetime. You just need to look past the sea of tourists with the selfie stick disease. (It IS possible, I promise. "Early morning" and "late evening/night" are the keywords.)  Needless to say, the masks and costumes are spectacular, especially when you do some research about the meaning and symbolism behind the traditional ones. Now, hopefully, on my next visit, a mysterious new acquaintance will give me an invitation for a private masked ball... I am very eager to witness escapades of the locals and their mischievous guests... There's just something liberating in being disguised, isn't it? 
P.S. Expect more blog posts with plenty of photographs from Venice in March.

Naked Landscape

Gourmet dinner in the countryside.
Experimenting with HDR on the way there. 
Knifelike wind was not kind to my skin. 
Not. Kind. At. All.

Happy thoughts

Just like Peter Pan. Thinking about wonderful memories and looking forward to creating new ones is what makes me fly. These are old photos, but I love browsing through them from time to time... Back in 2011, when I wasn't precisely sure what the direction of this blog is going to be (I just knew I wanted it to be my creative visual diary), I made a post called Reminiscence with a few curated photos from this stunning island, but now I've decided to share more of them with you... Greece is one of my happy places.  I love Greek music, cuisine, history, language, landscape... Oh, that landscape... Heaven!  We've been all around Thassos, so if somebody wants to know more first-hand information about the island, feel free to write.

Wondrous creatures

It has been proved countless times that the best work imitates nature or comes from nature in some form, so...  May their fur, feathers, horns, shapes and patterns serve as an inspiration to you like they do to me, and may you always be in awe of this world. Have a blessed day, folks!
