A shipyard is always a favorite subject. If you are lucky and you can find a traditional shipyard that builds and repairs old wooden boats then you are even luckier…
This one I found in the island of Paros. Close to the village of Naousa, at the area called “Monastiri”.
Not many people arround, but enough boats under repair, just what I wanted to create a photography feature article.
I have always thought that if you try to escape from, whatever you call, home, there is a reward. This time my sister dragged me to one of the nicest corners in Greece. At the little old harbor of Naousa, at Paros island – Greece, everything seems going its own way… And there it was, this amazing sky that created the impressive image. I just had to make the click…
Sometimes our comfort zone is much too unbearable. I was feeling like that and so I organized a small trip to Chios, on of the Greek islands that refugees from Turkey were approaching.
The biggest streams of refugees have now stopped and so the situation is no more critical. However, there are signs of those who rested their lives in a piece of rubber or a piece of plastic, to get away from their former life…
I am not the one to say who is right and who is wrong. Time will tell.
But I cannot send away my thoughts about those remaining pieces, in several parts of the island that have become a hope for those who needed it.
Sometimes the resemblance between human creations and nature creations is so big that astonishes us…
I doubt if the great Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí, has ever visited the greek island of Paros… But in my last visit to the island I found some interesting things…
Next image is a picture I took some years ago at the roof of the famous Casa Batlo.
Next one is an image I took at the roof of the, even more famous, Casa Mila. Both buildings created by Antoni Gaudí, at the beginning of the 20th century.
However a few… thousand years ago, nature created what you can see when visiting the extraordinary beach of Kolimpithres in the north of the island of Paros, Greece. I think that the resemblance is very obvious…
