Finding some inspiration & new hope for 2018 at the Botanical park of Chania Crete

My journal

Just as the New Year has entered our lives one still lingerers with thoughts of the year that pasted.

For some 2017 was the best yet and for others just a bitter distant memory.

Either way, I personally want to wish 2018 to be a healthy strong and prosperous year.

 

The other day my wife, daughter, some dear friends and myself visited Chanias Botanical Park.

Nestled in the foothills of Omalos, this place is ideal for some local food and for a walk amongst Crete’s flora, fauna and other plants. Not mention many other specimens from around the world.

Popular in the Summer on the way to the Samaria Gorge, visiting the Botanical Park is ideal for the entire family. And very photogenic.

Anyway, happy new year.

Bringing some local lifestyle to a villa photo shoot in the South of Crete
Photographing villas for me is a substantial part of my work. The main aspect I try to implement in this type of work is of genuine lifestyle during each photo shoot. This is what I incorporated when I recently photographed a small villa in the renowned village of Sfakia in the South of Crete. Sfakia is known throughout history for the bravery of it’s inhabitants during every single war that the island has been involved in. A proud group of people that now see thousands of tourists flock by during the Summer due to the passage from the Samaria Gorge and quaint neighboring villages like, Loutro, Fragokastelo and others.
