Here’s a collection of photographs from Limassol’s old town, rugged yet beautiful.
I’m now back from my recent trip back to home number 1 in Limassol meaning I have a stable enough internet connection to upload the photos I got to take while I was out there. I have to say taking photographs in Spring was so much easier than summer.The odd cloud or so gave my camera some time to sort out the light intake.I got to make good use of my polarizing filter due to some beautiful blue skies.
It’s currently 0 degrees in London and the trees are leafless outside but I guess that should be changing pretty soon. Need to think optimistically. Enjoy the photos, more to come soon.
The Sea turns this turquoise blue in Spring here due to the uplifting of the sand Still haven’t figured how to make use of the rental bikesThe little cafe just behind this stretch of beach do the best cheeseburgers This pier is the perfect spot for getting distance shots of the city
Every chance I get to go into York on a nice day I take. Nice days are rare to come by weather wise, yet you do notice the north usually has clearer skies than the south. One of my flatmates friends came to visit and we thought we’d give a small tour and it would be a chance to use my camera. I principally wanted to film but taking photographs got a hold of me.

Finally we got a thick coating of snow up in the north, mind you this was a while ago when the pictures were taken. Had a great couple of hours out in the snow before returning inside to complete work. I have been going through a bit of a mental block lately creatively and academically. Perhaps it’s because I’ve got ‘used to’ life again. Anyhow enjoy the photos of a very fun and very cold day~
A few years ago I went to a friend’s baptism. The ‘pastor’ made a variety of comments I didn’t approve of. One of which was “We must have control over our emotions.” I thought to myself surely a person is at their peak when their emotions overwhelm and inspire them. You only understand when looking back across past experiences why you change and harden as a person. You ‘freeze’ to avoid reliving anything close to those negative experiences. Yet when those emotions somehow find you even for a second, it strikes you throughout, damages your trail of thoughts, claims your breath and tugs on your insides.
Not to forget it’s important not to freeze all emotion. I know I have a tendency to over freeze my emotions. So I’m guessing a little rein on your emotions must be a good thing for a relatively stable set of mind.
That concludes another segment of ‘deep’ by yours truly, now I hope you enjoy the photographs of a beautifully frosty morning. I took these while still under the influence of alcohol and surprisingly enough I think I’m going to drink more often before taking photographs. It definitely helped me ignore the strange looks by passers by I was getting~
P.S. I hope you are all enjoying the end of the world
