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
In case you haven’t noticed I’m back home in Limassol for the next couple of days. If you’re here too you’ll probably catch me on my daily walks/jogs by the beach front and in the old town taking photographs around 2-5pm.
So far I’ve seen the new works on the seaside park and I have to say I’m impressed. It doesn’t have that rustic charm anymore but I guess you could say the rest of Limassol town makes up for the lack of ‘rust’ by the beach. The weather is a little different to the extreme heat waves I’m used to experiencing but days are an equivalent to British Summer, probably hotter.
Anyway keep a lookout for new photographs which will be up soon. Here are some teasers.

“The night possess me leaving no room vacant for worries”
The last few days have gone by with my mind absorbed in music as I have just discovered Spotify. My Nights have been less adventurous than I would have liked and those around me seem to have slipped into their routine life leaving me without much to do. At night when I just lay there dreaming of the bliss I experienced this summer during sunsets and the night and how I couldn’t fully absorb it due to the fear and scars left by exams.
However the Night and Sunset occasionally offered me relief. Most of the fond memories I made this summer in the evenings were with company, surprising as I usually find it hard to distinguish myself amongst other people however being embraced by the sea water as the sky faded from blue to orange being shrouded with friends really warmed my heart. The mornings I would usually spend alone cycling, swimming and walking and that’s when I felt most contempt.
I didn’t realize the night could provide me with the similar yet different feelings.
It was like experiencing samples of my perfect life. The streets of my home Limassol water tank illuminated at nightAlmost as if candle litThe central medieval castle‘Low Red Moon’
