Or is it octopi? Either way, it’s a bit of a strange sight. Apparently they do this is Greece as a method of drying the octopus to make it better for grilling.

In keeping with my recent theme of random older photos, here’s one showing piles and piles o’ fish in a fish market in Athens. It’s from a little over a year ago.

Lately I’ve been playing around with a technique for using perspective and constrast to make scenes look like something out of a miniature diorama.  In this picture we see a gigantic luxery yacht leaving the port of Hydra in the Greek Islands, but the optical illusion almost makes it look like a toy.  It’s a fun technique that is breathing a bit of new life into some older photos that I didn’t really think had turned out that well.
