Greek photography

As the more observant of you have noticed I like to take a picture or two. As a result I'm a member of many Flickr groups and enjoy seeing the work of other photographers from the rest of the world. One of my favourite groups has to be Greeks on Contemporary Life which has lots of great photographers posting pictures on modern Greece. It's refreshing to see a view of the country that doesn't fall into the trap of reproducing all the old postcard cliches, as beautiful as they may be.

Perhaps best of all is their blog (click here) which showcases the groups best work. The descriptions are in Greek but even those who don't read it can see that the images speak for themselves. If you want to what 21st century Greece looks like beyond the beaches and museums this is as good a place as any to start looking.

These pictures are really good.
Being the safety freak that I am, I’d suggest going to and getting a copyright to post on the bottom of your blog (it’s absolutely free to use the site). Now I don't know what someone could do with the pictures on this blog. But at least it gives you legal coverage.

Thank you for the advice. I just did as you said and posted a license.
