A quarter to four

Kozani clock towerClock tower in Kozani. Actually, it's a bell tower, part of St. Nikolaos church. It was built in 1855 but the clock was added in 1935 to replace an older one, if I 'm not mistaken.

Monastery on the rocks (2)


Now, this one is not in an island. I think it's called the "Kipina" monastery, but I 'm not quite sure. It is situated somewhere in the middle of the mountainous Tzoumerka region.
March 2006.


(I 'm back! How nice it feels to have some spare time to pick photos to upload, and do things I like!)

Cheap Labour

two donkeys
Patient and tireless, these cute animals carry visitors the traditional way, up to an orthodox monastery (photos thereof, coming soon) situated in a steep, rocky site in Amorgos island.

Nothingness

absurd sculpture dedicated to those who are honoured despite having achieved nothing in particular
I first saw this, five years ago. I thought it was absurd. Today, I just realized: its purpose is to honor those who have achieved nothing so far. Why not, huh?

P.S. You wouldn't expect to see this in mediterranean, warm, sunny Greece, would you?

Sunset

sunset at Santorini caldera

Sort of a commonplace theme, I guess. I used a camera that came as a gift with a laundry detergent box (!) to take this picture. I then scanned the photo and have been using it for sometime as a desktop background for my pc.

Speaking of dwarves - here is an example of the opposite. I had to plunge to the left to avoid this giant stepping on me. Phew! That was close...

Red Knight

There 's a forest near my house. Many unusual creatures live in it - dwarf warriors are an example. This one stood in full armour in my way, ready to fight!
