This Week In Athens

Well spring has sprung here in Athens, things are turning green and flowers are starting to bloom.  Many assume this is the beginning of the long lovely weather we get here in Greece, but that's just not true.  Spring in Greece is spectacular, summer on the other hand is a scorcher.  Summer in Greece is like winter, only the opposite, the heat is oppressing, and it kills just about all plant life.  No one wants to go outside, and although it look beautiful, that's just a tease, the moment you step outside you're skin starts to burn.  So for now I'm going to enjoy the spring.  I'm going to go outside, explore a new neighborhood or two, and maybe watch some strange Mediterranean plants grow.

When Cross Lights Fail

Last night while walking home from a wonderful meal at Pizza Hut, Allison noticed that a particular pair of street lights didn't seem to be working very well.
Sorry I couldn't get a better photo but I was trying to dodge cars at the time.
It's one thing for the lights to be turned off, it could be a power failure, or burnt out bulbs.  What do you do when both lights are both on and then they both turn off?

Signs I Like

Carnival is coming up here in Greece, and so is the new obsession with very creepy clown signs.

This Week In Athens

As far was what happened in the city of Athens this past week, I think this picture pretty much sums it up.

As for me personally, I'm doing OK.  In fact I've got a few more art projects on the go, the possibility of another art show has come up, and I've been doodling like crazy.  It's strange how sometimes your outside surroundings can have a strange effect on you.  You would think I would be in a panic about what's going on in Athens right now, but I'm not.  Instead I'm inspired to work on the projects I have going, and determined to figure out some of the issues I have logistically with some of the projects I've been avoiding.

I've also been eating a lot of oranges lately, I'm not sure what that means, but I thought I would share.

Signs I Like

I envy any person that can read this sign.
Does Van Halen know that Volks Bank in Vienna is using their logo?
Von Kock... I giggle because I'm immature.

This Week In Athens

I don't really like writing about the economic problems here in Athens, but this week I just can't avoid it.  At this point in my life I have to say that I officially have no idea what the heck is going on with the economy in Greece.  More importantly I've lost track of all of the IMF's, EU Zones, and various other groups and regulators involved with this situation.  I thought since I live in Greece it might be interesting to keep up with what's going on, but at this point I'm completely confused as to whom is who and who is meeting with who.

So I've officially signed off all my RSS feeds on the subject and I will no longer pay attention to these issues.  Instead I'm just going to blissfully go out and take pictures of pretty things.

New Photo From Senses Series and A New Look For Candy Critic

 I just finished my latest mixed media/photography piece and I'm calling it "Written Words".  For now it's part of the series known as "Senses" but I might separate, along with several other pieces I've done, into a series called "From Stone".
But that isn't all the news, I've also just finished updating candycritic.org with a new look, new navigation, and it's now much simpler to check out candy reviews.

Signs I Like

What is Colonel Sanders doing with that child?
Like the sign, love the hat.
I'm wondering if the photography of the kid on the left really says "Lighting Style"?

This Week In Athens

Look closely, you can see the Acropolis.
 I don't want to harp on this whole winter weather here in Athens, but I'm really sick of people envisioning me living in a tropical paradise.  It's not to say that Greece has really bad weather, it's just not always perfect.  In fact winter weather in Greece is cool, wet, and very, very grey.  Sure the snow didn't stick, and it's now about 14 degrees outside, but it's not sunny, and you can't go swimming or anything.
The fact that it doesn't stay cold is part of the problem for me.  I kind of wish it would stick for a little while so I could go out sledding, make a snow man, or even just make one snow ball.  In no time this snow is puddles of water all over the city, and these puddles make the marble sidewalks very slippery.  And for some reason Europeans have a love of running shoes with little to no grip.  This does nothing to keep me from falling on my ass.
