Lesvos is the 3rd biggest island of Greece and located in the Aegean Sea very near to Turkey (approx. 16 km). We went to Lesvos on a 12-hour-ferry trip from Piraeus and arrived at the island's capital Mytilini on the eastern coast.

The bus to our final destination Skala Eressou, a beautiful town on the south-western coast goes only once a day so we spent some hours in the capital, mostly strolling around or sitting in one of the many chic bars because we were too tired to do anything useful (Sleeping on a ferry is not very easy. If you don’t want to pay the higher price for a cabin you should bring a pillow and a blanket and be prepared to sleep on the floor).
The bus trip to Skala Eressou was a great way to get motion-sick because the island consists of several mountains, it goes up and down and one curve follows another. Skala Eressou is a beautiful small town with a nice beach and lots of restaurants and bars on stakes along the beach. On the eastern part of the town there is a cute little port and on the way there you can see several sculptures.
If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!
Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
