I am really enjoying my Yashica ML 35mm F2.8 legacy glass because it is making me slow down and really think about my shots. Full manual control is something new to me, so I don't snap as many photos as I do when using the AF lenses. So, if I shoot on average about 30 photos on a photo walk with an AF lens, I will shoot an average of 15 photos with my manual lens. This photo has been taken at the Old Venetian port in the Old Town of Rethymno. The sun is coming down, so it is early evening…

I took this photograph in Pagrati in Athens on Eftichidou avenue. A lottery sales man was taking a rest while sitting on the bench of a bus stop.  I was walking with my best mate. We were laughing about something in a rather loud manner. I saw the lottery sales man look at us disapprovingly, so I snapped a shot in cold blood! Snap!

I took this photograph during my last Street Hunt which I made during my last trip to Athens. I was walking along Vassilissis Sophias avenue which is a big and busy street when I noticed the architecture in this amazing neoclassic building. I don't know the story of the building but I bet it is old. I wanted to photograph it with the inclusion of the human element. So I framed my shot and took the photograph at the precise moment that I could isolate the woman and her baby and there were ...

This place serves Greek souvlaki and it is just a couple of blocks away from my home. I walk past it every day on my way to my daughter's school. It is owned by a man and a woman in their late 50s. The day I took this shot the man was alone in his Souvlaki place and was taking a nap on one of the chairs. I snapped him instinctively. Snap!

This is the "Brown corner coffee shop" in Rethymno. It is one of those cafes for older more traditional type people that are not interested in fancy decor, new modern glasses and 1000 different types of coffee. The people, actually let me rephrase, the men that visit this place (I don't think I have ever seen a lady here) meet to read their papers, talk sports and drink their traditional Greek coffee. In the evenings the beverage of choice is Cretan wine, Raki, Beer or something like that…

I made this photograph with my manual legacy glass Yashica ML 35mm F2.8 and my NEX-6 one evening when I was trying the lens in lower light conditions at Platanos, a small square in Rethymno. Despite bad lighting, I managed thanks to the focus peaking of my NEX-6 to focus as well as possible. I really enjoy shooting manually, getting the exposure right and the focus and the composition. It makes photography so much more interesting in my opinion. Each photo takes just that little bit more to…

The uttermost central point in Athens, Greece is considered by many to be Omonoia Square. It is a large cement square that never sleeps and is always full of the most amazing characters. This magazine stand is there. I found the fact that everyone was minding there own business in this scene interesting, so I took the shot. When I got home later, I noticed in the picture that the Magazine stand owner was on to me. You can tell by his sneaky smile that he saw me take the shot. Awesome!

This is the wall of the Ipokratio Hospital in Athens. I like the fact that it has many parallel horizontals. It is also rich in texture and so I find that it is an interesting background. As I was studying the wall, this old man walked in front of it. He was preoccupied with something, lost in thought. I had already framed so all I had to do was click the shutter button. Snap!

This is one of those "spur of the moments" shots! I was attracted to the light and shadow before I saw the lady. By the time I realised what I was looking at, she walked into the scene and just made it that much better for me. Thank you lady! Snap!

I took this photo a day when it rained here in Rethymno using my SEL35F18 lens. An AF lens is needed when raining because I use an umbrella to take walks in the rain to shoot rainy photos. My Sony NEX-6 isn't weather proof unfortunately so if it get's wet it will go bbbzzzzztttsss and malfunction! So, one hand is busy holding the umbrella and the other one operates the camera. In this photo you can see part of the "Platia Mitropoleos" which in English would be "Cathedral square". It is ...
