Local festival with a photo expo at Zymvragou Chania Crete, Greece

My journal

A few months back I was asked to participate in a photo expo by donating a framed picture. Organized by Mr. Archontakis Ioannis the expo took part last night August 10th 2016.

More of Mr. Archontakis work can be viewed at olivepress ART FACTORY worth visiting when in the area.

 

The location of Zymvragou, of the municipality of Platanias was magical. And old neoclassical building that used to be the village school has be restored and turned into a photo and cinema museum.

And best of all on the same evening the locals were hosting a local festival with food and live music.

A fine way to spend the evening with family on the island of Crete.

When on the island perhaps lake Agia should be on your radar of visits.

A holiday photo walk around Chania Crete.
Walking around the town of Chania near the end of the year one gets a chance to live some of the traditions here in Greece. First thing you will notice and feel is that Christmas isn’t as big of a deal as it is in other parts of the world. Here in Greece Easter is more celebrated and way more festive.
