Athens in the cold by Nektaria Markaki

If there’s something that I love, is taking a stroll around the city when it’s cold. Yes, I know, you might think that I am crazy but there’s something refreshing about walking in the cold… and Athens is still wearing its colorful attire, still in celebrating mode with its christmas lights still lit! Here are some of the photos I took, and I liked- trust me my hand was shaking like amd from the cold- and I do hope you like them too!

Sydney Australia by Emily McGuire

Yesterday I went to Sydney for the day. I didn’t venture from Circular Quay and around Opera House (I had things to do in that area). I took some photos to share though.
Sydney Harbour is beautiful. No matter how many times I have seen it (and it has been a lot), I am still amazed by how pretty it is. I also love the ferries – Circular Quay is obviously a great place to sit and watch them. And of course, who could forget the Sydney Harbour bridge?

I hope you enjoy the photos below.

Chi Town – by Emily McGuire (Australia)

Hello to you blog reading people. I had plans to take photos all week, of course it slipped my mind. Then it was Sunday night and I was without photos. So I went through my large collection and found some that I took in Chicago when I was in the USA. I LOVED Chicago – I was only there for a short time, but we did an architectural cruise and I just loved learning about the city from the water. I would do it again if I went back. So here are some photos I took on the cruise – hope you enjoy 🙂 chicago4

Hello Again from Newcastle, NSW Australia by Emily McGuire

Well, here I am after a long break – it is nice to be back. I haven’t taken photos with my camera since I last posted here. So it will be nice to get back into it and  have some fun! Today I am sharing some photos of the beach – it is what I love the most.
I hope you enjoy them.

These boys above were waiting for the waves to crash over them. The swell was quite high that day and they had to hang on tight so they weren’t washed into the ocean pool that is behind them. Such fun!

Bay and Ocean – Australia. By Emily McGuire

I recently went to Tanilba Bay in Port Stephens (NSW, Australia) and I took a few photos. I will be sharing those today. I also took some photos of Newcastle Beach area – which is where I seem to go whenever I feel sad (or mad or any other emotion you can think of).
I am late posting these this week as I have had major computer issues, but I have sorted that all out, thankfully.
Hope you enjoy the photos and do go over to my blog and check it out. http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress..com – – until next time….

Sounio by Nektaria Markakis

One of the most beautiful places, that is a MUST SEE when you visit Athens, is Sounio and the temple of Poseidon. I was lucky enough to visit it again after many years, and here are some photos for you to see its magnificence and importance! Also, you can take a peek at the wonderful Porto Rafti seas side town!

Athens by Natasha Tzavara (Greece)

My name is Natasha Tzavara and I’m 24 years old. I live in Petralona, a district of central Athens. I love the city center and I used to walk many hours daily in its neighborhoods and discover new parts of it. Photography is one of my loves! Recently I discovered my interest in dance and more specifically for tango, which is based on communication and strong emotions! I took these photos after a walk in the center during the night, when the colors dissapear and everything becomes different, but still as beautiful and interesting as the morning!

Small town – New South Wales, Australia by Emily McGuire

Morpeth is a town near Maitland in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. It is known for its jazz festivals, quirky shops and gorgeous old buildings. It is situated near the Hunter River and I spent many days on the river at Morpeth with my family on our boat. It brings back great memories to go back there to visit. Today I went there and took a few photos to share. I hope you enjoy them and a big happy new year to everyone!
Check out my photos on my blog: http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com

(Click on the photos to make them bigger)

IMG_1732 Normally Morpeth is bustling with people, but I went late in the day, so it was very quiet (quiet enough to stand in the middle of the road to take this photo)

IMG_1708 This building (barn) is not technically IN Morpeth, but I still love it. I have driven past it about two million times (I am rounding up) and I have ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted to stop and take a photo but I never got around to it, until today.

IMG_1717-2 I seem to find myself drawn to old, gorgeous houses in this area. They are so magnificent.. They do not build them like this any more, sadly.

IMG_1721  Again with the old fashioned things you never see any more. A red phone box. It doesn’t seem to have a phone in it (I didn’t actually look that close inside). But it is just beautiful. (I feel I may live in the wrong era!)

Goodbye Australia by Emily McGuire

I am about to embark on a massive adventure – packing up all my things (cats included) and moving to the other side of the world. I do believe this will be my last blog post from Australia. So I am sharing with you the one thing I will miss the most about this place – – the beach. I know I have shared beach photos before, but these ones aren’t the same ones 🙂

All photos were taken in either Newcastle or Forster in New South Wales and there is one from Hervey Bay in Queensland. I hope you enjoy and do visit my personal blog – http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com ( which I shall be updating in the coming weeks – and on a very regular basis)

Here and There – USA, UK, Australia by Emily McGuire

Again I am running behind in posting. Again, I feel like I am stuggling to find photos to post as I haven’t had the time to go out and take new photos. So today I am sharing a selection of different photos I took a while ago. Please enjoy and if you want to see my other photos please visit http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com

Next month I promise to have brand new photos to share 🙂
