Thessaloniki waterfront II

Hello my friends πŸ˜€

Β  I’ve been busy editing the photos i took during my last visit in Thessaloniki. Most of them were under clear blue sky, which makes it harder for me, as i’m used to process my photos a certain way for dark and cloudy skies. I’ll be posting some individual photos until i finish with the editing and then i’ll make a big post πŸ™‚

Β  So this is the renovated waterfront. I really like this part, it used to be concrete slabs, mostly crooked and broken in many places. This definitely looks modern and more sophisticated. The little water pools are illuminated at night, which creates a beautiful effect. The marble elements create a nice contrast and give out a bit of the classic Greek character. At the edge of the water, there’s an installation of a big steel moon. The moon is also illuminated at night and it’s visible from quite a distance.

Β  Today we have 36C and the temperature keeps rising, so if those marble pools were actual pools, i’d just sit in there with my lemon iced tea and not move a finger πŸ˜›

Thessaloniki’s waterfront after the recent “face-lift”. I like the wooden element that was added all along the edge but the rest of it is just too gray for my taste. We need more green not more concrete…A panoramic photo of the place is coming up next πŸ™‚
