Ideas For A Happy Weekend

24 November 2012 0


Yesterday’s post was all about ‘colourful happiness’. But there is another side to happiness, too. I love black and white photography. Especially shots of foreign countries, cultures, people. These days I’ve stumbled over the fascinating work of one of Greece’s greatest photographers, Kostas Balafas who passed away last year. Many books have been published with his amazing black and white photographies taken in the past century. I particularly love the book ‘Ta Nisia‘ (The islands) depicting the life of the inhabitants of the Greek islands. Here are four favorites from this book – I would love some plain copies to stick to my wall as eye-catching art pieces. Incredibly gorgeous. Incredibly sumptuous. Incredibly fascinating. I am wishing you a fascinating weekend!
