iPhoneographymy obsession with taking pictures - daily pictures, weekly pictures, photography link ups and a bit about expat life along the way
For the first 4 years of this blog all the images were taken with an iPhone. Initially the iPhone 5 and then in autumn 2015 an iPhone 6. Over those years my photography has developed and I’ve learnt so much. From joining in daily photo sharing on Instagram to sharing pictures of every day life on the island.
Moving forward I’m now using, more learning to use, a Nikon D3300. The iPhone will still come in useful as it is an excellent camera and always handy in my pocket or bag. All the Instagram images will continue to be taken with the iPhone and many for Facebook but the Nikon is now taking over more.
Here you’ll find a portfolio of my favourite images taken with the iPhone 6 and links to articles where photography and learning to take photographs are a part of the blog.

Nature is always impressive and never fails to surprise me with it’s beauty and strength. This week was no exception, with the first rains of autumn there are signs of spring like growth all over the island.
These flowers are the exception, they appear between August and September in many place across the region, on this island I’ve seen swathes of them each year along the long stretch of Afandou beach. This week they were there again.
With the heat of August now finally a memory it’s time to get back to work and back to blogging for me. There’s going to be more regular recipes, travel pieces, pictures and updates of life on the island.
It’s April already! Καλό μήνα (kalo mena) literally means “good month” and was a greeting heard lots around the village today.
When the clocks change everything gets thrown out of whack for a while. Now though I can’t believe how lucky we are, sat outside on the patio, it’s nearly 7pm, the sun is still shining on the little church and its warm enough to be in a t-shirt. The cold wind of the last few days has gone and it’s been a perfect warm spring day.
The last 2 days have been so different weather wise. Yesterday was sunny with Apollo finding it so warm on the beach he went for a swim. He started by just walking in up to his tummy and was delighted when I threw his toy in. The first swim on this season. I’m sure they’ll be many more but it will need to be a little warmer for me to join in.
Today has been a beautiful warm and sunny spring day on this Greek island. It’s also been World Poetry Day. One of my favourite poets is Maya Angelou she wrote this poem in 1995 for UN anniversary and in it gives us hope that humanity will find a way to live in peace with each other and the planet.
