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.

‘ve had a very productive day here. With lot of sunshine it felt a little warmer today, though the cold wind is still here. It’s definitely moulting season for the animals. I’m not an enthusiastic cleaner, it gets done but I can’t say I get over excited by the idea of dusting. Over the next few weeks the hoover will need to come out daily but at least it’s made a little easier with a good hoover
Every day that we get of life is a gift. Though we often forget that when caught up in the routines of our lives. Doing the washing up, going to work, cooking dinner, walking the dog. They become mundane occasionally we are reminded of the gift we have.
Today’s prompt was ‘gift’ so I spent a lot of the day thinking about the different types of gifts that life gives us.
Today started out very wet, the rain finally arrived overnight and has continued on and off all day. It was a good excuse to stay at the computer and catch up on emails and paperwork.
Today was the main day for carnival parades in Greece. This village along with many others across the country had a parade. There were simple floats made from old cars and vans, costumes and music.
