There is no much to explain to those they love photography and everything this continuous procedure signifies. Either someone is a professional photographer or an amateur, there isn’t a strict diversifying liνe between the two of them, given that their love for this hobby, sport, profession (call it whatever you want) is genuine and real.
Photography is the art of modifying the world around you, free your subject from its surroundings and alter it, recreating its essence through your personal perspective, while keeping it untouched in the passing of time. For me, photography is choosing what to see in direct correlation with what you feel. Each photograph includes a part of yourself and this is a unique feeling.
I described all these in order to point out that I don’t stop seeking new places to explore through my photographic camera and to improve my landscape and street photography skills within different surroundings and images. In few words, I always seek for new natural canvases. Thus, due to this endeavor of mine, I discovered a half-day photography tour in Nafplio of Greece through
In few words, I always seek for new natural canvases. Thus, due to this endeavor of mine, I discovered a half-day photography tour in Nafplio of Greece through Key Tours. This online booking platform is oriented to tours around Greece, but I automatically booked this one the very moment I saw it. The package promised an ideal place with tons of stimuli to trigger our creativity, as well as training from pros regardless the level of photographic capability of each person. I consider myself
The package promised an ideal place with tons of stimuli to trigger our creativity, as well as training from pros regardless the level of photographic capability of each person. I consider myself an amateur photographer but since I have spent days and days on this hobby, my friends say that I am not.
Anyway, I have to admit that Nafplio is as gorgeous city as they claim it is, and it’s truly a great place for photographers as well. Its architecture comes with many influences from the Venetians, as two Venetian castles, the islet of Bourtzi and Palamidi with its 999 steps, rounding the old city of Nafplio and transpiring a unique mystical aura. Moreover, the cobbled Syntagma square looks like an Italian piazza, while the city’s numerous little picturesque alleys provided me with some astonishing captures. An inside tip, even if the guys are really good at what they do and very informative, is to ask them to show you the round of Arvanitia and the square of Psaromachalas (meaning the fishermen’s neighborhood), both great for amazing photos. The round of Arvanitia comprises a peripheral stone-built road with an incredible view over the Argolic Gulf in total silence. There, I also discovered the Venetian church of Maria della Grotta, circled with fragrant fig trees. On the other hand, the Psaromachalas square is characterized as one of the best spots for all kinds of photographers since it features breathtaking views of the rock of Akronafplia and the Argolic Gulf in a rare natural context of red white aromatic bougainvilleas and other colorful flowers.
Finally, since that was a half-day experience (we gathered at 11 o’clock am), I combined it with the evening group of another half-day experience of Key Tours in Nafplio, that of Greek honey & ouzo tasting. Believe me after a very creative day giving yourself in your passion, this is the best choice to relax, eat & complete your day!
