ย  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!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย  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 โ€œtourist snapshotsโ€ 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.

ย  But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been shooting at all. Actually, I recently had a beautiful collaboration with a blogger called โ€œThe Viennese girlโ€. 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 ๐Ÿ˜›

ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

University of Edinburgh Photographic Society, “Elements & Journeys” Exhibition

 

 

Hello my dear friends!

ย  I’m very happy to share with you this exhibition that i was blessed to be a part of. PhotoSoc is the photographic society of the University of Edinburgh that was founded in 1890 and it’s the older and largest university photographic society in the UK. FOAPTH (Photography Club of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) is an independent photography society based in Greece that was founded in 1987. For more than 25 years, the society has organized photography lessons, trips, exhibitions and other photography related activities.

ย  2014 marks FOAPTH’s first collaboration with PhotoSoc, with an entry of 15 photos for the “Elements” category. As a member of FOAPTH, i participated with 2 photos, choosing the element of water. The opening of the exhibition took place at the Mash House in Edinburgh, on the 29th of March. I had no way to be there but luckily one of the FOAPTH members, Vasilis, had moved to Edinburgh a few months ago and took some photos of the exhibition.

ย  Now my photos can brag about having been in Edinburgh! One day, i hope i can say i’ve been to Edinburgh myself! ๐Ÿ˜€ Who knows what the future holds but one thing we do know, 15 photos of PhotoSoc members will in turn be displayed in the annual FOAPTH exhibition in late May in Thessaloniki, Greece.
