  Today I celebrate my 2 months of being in Vienna. Now that the initial excitement is starting to fade and reality kicks in, feelings are mixed. To begin with, i had so many distractions and things I needed to get done when I got here that I had no time for me. I started feeling the consequences of that both physically but also mentally and so i’m now focusing on finding my flow again, getting on a productive mood and finally organizing my new life. I’ve left so many things on a standstill that it’s overwhelming to choose where to start from but it all needs to be done…So no more excuses!  😉

  Life in Vienna, has been an interesting experience so far. I’m starting to view the not so great sides of the city but overall i’m very happy here and didn’t think twice about my choice. There are many opportunities and creative outlets that in Greece just don’t exist. Talking about creative, you may have noticed that I haven’t uploaded many photos yet and that is with a reason. I don’t want to upload your classic “tourist snapshots” of all the famous landmarks and sights. I’m still in search of my own Vienna, I want to deliver it to you through my V-Light eyes and give you my perspective.

  But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been shooting at all. Actually, I recently had a beautiful collaboration with a blogger called “The Viennese girl”. Silia is Greek and has been living in Vienna for a little more than 3 years, her story is quite interesting as well. On her blog she writes tasteful posts with tips and recommendations about places she visited in the city. Well, it’s definitely worth a look if you’d like to see Vienna through her eyes, perhaps in a more romantic and colorful way than what i am going to show you 😛

 I had the pleasure of doing some photos to accompany her feature about the Falkensteiner Hotel in Bad Walterdorf. You can visit the links bellow to see what we made 😀

1 Year on WordPress.com

Hello my lovely people,

  One year and 11,400 hits later, it’s finally my first anniversary on wordpress 😀 Yay! I started this blog, in the midst of frustration as i was suddenly forced to go back in living with my parents, unemployed and with a ton of free time. It was one of the best decisions i ever made and i don’t know why i didn’t do this earlier…

  My first posts, were mainly a selection of older photos that i thought were good enough to be still displayed. Being trapped in this tiny village of 500 people, i only had a few opportunities, to visit other places and shoot new stuff but you guys still supported my posts, with very thoughtful comments and made me look forward showing you any new stuff.

  Some of you have been following me since the very beginning, some of you are recent followers. It doesn’t really matter, i’m very grateful to all of you who decided that my blog was worth your precious time. Thank you!

  I am also very happy to have met some people on this platform, that i can truly call my friends. Thank you all for your support and for believing in me! I wish we could meet one day in “real life” as well…

  With my move to Vienna, many things will change. I’ll have new stuff to post more daily, you’ll get to see many new places, see my photography evolve and i hope you’ll enjoy being a part of this adventure 😀

  There are only 6 days left for my art sale crowd-funding campaign to end, so any kind of support is still very much appreciated: igg.me/at/VlightArtSale
