Photographer's Note

Today is my 3rd TE-"Birthday" and I decided to "celebrate" it with my favourite kind of photography, a nightshot. Most of the time it's been a great pleasure, there were some bad times too, because of some "strange" (imho) decisions from the mods.

Meeting new friends with whom we share the same passion, sometimes "person to person", has always been the best part, and I hope I 'll meet many more of them, personally in the future ( I have a small surprise for some of them in 2 weeks time!).

Of course, I cannot underestimate the role of TE in my personal development as a photographer, thanks to many members and friends, I think that since my first post, there is some "progress".

On the other hand, it was a great dissapontment, seing this 3 years, many great photographes leaving the site, a fact that caused some kind of deterioration on the site's content. Thank God, some of them are back (for example, atha2pan )!

A panoramic night view of Nafplio, a photo taken from Palamidi castle. If you want to read more about this beautiful town, check one of my previous posts (***Nafplio sunset***). Both photos were taken on the same evening. Going up and down, the 999 stairs that connect the town and the castle, twice, isn't easy.
Especially when you are carrying a bag with 2 cameras, 5 lenses, a tripod and, most important,... your wife :-)))

PS. Of course, there is a good side in the "carrying you wife with you" thing. Having to carry a heavy camera bag and a tripod, all day long, for 10-15 days every month, 12 months a year, for 4 years now, has caused some trouble and pain on my back and neck. So the waiting time, between the "golden" and the "blue" hour is the perfect time for a soothing massage ;-) Not to mention the great company on what most of the times are the loneliest hours of the day...
