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.

Lovely people of the internet, life is about being planning things spontaneously. So I’ve made plans and although it’s a month in advance this is quite a sudden plan to be making.
During one of my power point presentation assignments on HIV I remembered an old video by UNICEF and tried to track it down. It reminded me of the charities work and how important it is. This year I’m lucky enough to be heading to Limassol in Spring and it just so happens the dates are right and I will be in town for the Limassol Marathon. I’ve booked my place and I’ll be running 10K. It’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this and have been training on and off. I’ll be running to raise money for UNICEF and although it’s a big charity it’s easy for people to forget about because of it’s large profile and how important it is to continue to give money to these hugely important organisations.
So far I’ve raised £133.75 from friends and family. I’m hoping to complete the run in under an hour but hey that’s very optimistic thinking. Would mean the world if any of you guys could sponsor me and help contribute to the fantastic work UNICEF do.
Thank you ~
