Έκθεση βραχομορφών και φυσικών θαυμάτων


.

Ikaria 083 - from living in Ikaria in a place that's often covered with snow in the winter; not for too long though...Γεια σας εκεί έξω😋
Τώρα κανονικά θα ‘πρεπε ν’ ανέβαζα Από Ορειβατικό Πεζοπορικό Σύλλογο Ικαρίας χάρτης στο Google maps της διαδρομής: Καραβόσταμο - Αρέθουσα - Δοκίμι - Χρυσόστομο χάρτες μονοπατιών στο μπλογκ, Sudden Vineyard αλλά που καιρός;
Είναι σε εξέλιξη οι αγροτικές εργασίες της  Our old rototiller still tilling in Ikaria άνοιξης και συνάμα γίνονται πολλά πράγματα, καλά, κακά ή αδιάφορα, απορώ που γίνονται τόσα, τέλος πάντων, αυτό το ποστ είναι για να μη λένε οι φίλοι ότι τους ξέχασα και πιάνουν τα τηλέφωνα, καλά είμαι, ρε παιδιά, ορίστε και αυτές οι φανταστικές φωτογραφίες από μια εκδρομή A day at an exhibition, Cape Papas, Ikaria, March 2017 - Slideshow of 29 pictures by angeloska, on Flickr που έγινε πριν δύο εβδομάδες, έτσι για να βλέπετε, να μη λέτε ότι δεν έχουμε κουλτούρα στο νησί, έχουμε και παραέχουμε.
Π.χ. έχουμε γλυπτική της φύσης, ζωγραφική του πελάγου, θεατρικά εμπνευσμένα απ’ το τοπίο κι  Little Sandra running barefooted εξερευνήσεις ερειπίων οικισμών που μοιάζουν σαν προϊστορικοί. Και έχουμε και σπορ, π.χ. ξυπόλητο τρέξιμο παιδιών στα μονοπάτια, κολύμπι σε άγρια νερά, σκαρφάλωμα σε βράχια και πότε-πότε άσκοπες περιπλανήσεις που είναι για μένα οι καλύτερες.
😋
Άντε γεια τώρα, σκάβαμε και μαγειρεύαμε όλη μέρα, ελπίζουμε να βρέξει λίγο αυτές τις μέρες, να ποτιστεί ηArticle in Eleni's 💗 blog: «A Day at an Exhibition» : «Hard hiking, wild swimming and admiring rocks scuptured by nature in Cape Papas, Ikaria». 29 pictures from a wild hiking and swimming adventure in a fascinating coast full of natural wonders under Ikaria's westernmost Cape Papas undertaken by the Mountain Climbing & Hiking Club of Ikaria γη, να ξεκουραστούμε κι εμείς. Αυτά από μένα, πάτε στο μπλογκ της Ελένης να δείτε το ωραίο φωτο-ποστ που λέγεται: «A Day at an Exhibition» που πάει να πει «Μια Μέρα σε μια Έκθεση». Τι έκθεση; Μια έκθεση βραχομορφών και φυσικών θαυμάτων που βλέπει κανείς μόνο με τα πόδια και που αν είναι τολμηρός μπορεί να κάνει και μπάνιο!

Φιλιά💋

These are the facts. As for the impressions, I will be as thrifty with words as Peggy Zouti, the maker of this picture. That’s all she said  about her little triumph on her wall in facebook
few days ago:
…………………..
«THE SKINNY DIPPING REPORT: The World’s Leading Authority on Swimming Naked and Doing it Well. For all those who LOVE swimming naked this is a calendar and a guide to swimming naked in beautiful post around the world, with real people and real stories. My real story is on November at Nas beach, Ikaria island, Greece and also the cover of the calendar!» ^^’

Peggy Zouti’s post on facebook about her picture.

…….
Peggy is a Flickr friend, younger, more daring and 100% more photographer than I am. Below is her original photo, the «Dive with me» (under the same sky) from Ikaria in her page on Flickr. Click on it to see it and let her see her page views rise! Perhaps after that she will tell us the story that goes with the picture!

Quotes, sources and resources about TSDR and SD in general:
………….

«In the 21st century, we
TSDR on tumblrare witnessing the blurring of the dichotomy between photographer and subject. As the camera lens ceases to subjugate as it once did, a third category of nude imagery is emerging that is neither porn nor advertising but social erotica. To be sure, there is still a transaction at play but the currency is far more social than it is monetary.»
— The Skinny Dipping Report (tumblr)


………….

«WHY SKINNY DIPPING?
TSDR on instagramSkinny-dipping is the world’s most universally recognized erotic social experience. For many, it was our first time being naked outdoors, even our first time being naked with someone else. Our first skinny dip may have been an act of rebellion, perhaps from parents, friends, or simply our own fears. We reassured ourselves and maybe each other with the promise that darkness TSDR on instagramand water would conceal our naked bodies, when secretly we knew there was plenty of light to see. It was a good excuse to subvert our own fears of being naked together.
In skinny-dipping – the memory, the idea, and the feeling – there is much to explore.»
— The Skinny Dipping Report (instagram)


………….

«WHY NOW?
TSDR on FlickrThe Internet has democratized cultural production in all conceivable media and genres. It should come as no surprise that has also fundamentally altered the production and sharing of nude imagery, both in practice and intent. TSDR on Flickr What inspires women to submit their naked photos online? The short answer is – Control. The ability to show yourself on your terms, how you’d like to be seen, free from the distortion of someone else’s viewpoint and the sanitizing of Photoshop. For some contributors this is an exposition of pure art. For others it’s a rebellious gesture, erotic expression, a desire to be desired, or a cathartic process. And for everyone, as we’re told every day, it’s just hugely fun. In the 8 years since we began collecting folios we’ve amassed around one million raw images from over 5 thousand contributors in nearly 8000 folios (not all are online, yet). We get more visitors than the Guggenheim, we have a larger collection than the Louvre and track the zeitgeist like the Tate cannot.»

That’s all.
To be honest, as far as I am concerned, I am out of words. From Ikaria Greece, through Valencia Spain, to New York USA! Out here in this little island of rocks I will never allow myself to sulk any more!

equinox in bluotone

Bluotone: η φωτογραφία τραβήχτηκε αργά απόγευμα, φθινοπωρινή ισημερία.
Bluotone: καλό το μαύρισμα αν και το ‘χω σπάνιο να πάω παραλία.
Bluotone: είμαι πια αρκετό καιρό στην Ικαρία.
Βρέχει τώρα. Ποτίζει ο θεός. Όλα πάνε καλά.
Στις εκλογές το απέναντι νησί βγήκε πάλι μπλε.
Το δικό μας νησί βγήκε πάλι κόκκινο. Τα γνωστά.

Καλό φθινόπωρο, φιλαράκια.

Four Seasons in Ikaria


.
.
………………..
…. Ooph!. 😛
………………………
After Eleni loaded a set of new photos on Flickr last
month, mutual friends said that I should show some stuff
too. Well, here is the stuff, eighty, both old and
new, known and unknown, pictures from our life
and times in Ikaria in the four seasons of the
year. Most of them have always been on Flickr,
only that they were set ‘private’. If you open the
pictures in the source, you will be able to read
the titles, some explanations and links back to this blog  😉
On the other hand, if you are in a hurry you
can just watch the slideshow which will load very soon
after you click on the picture below. I hope that you
will enjoy at least that one. 🙂….

Giving it all : Wild coves & beaches in northern Ikaria


…..

super splash ikaria«Oh, what mortal place have I reached this time? Are they cruel and merciless savages, or god-fearing people, generous to strangers? The noise in my ears sounded like girls shouting, nymphs who haunt the high mountain passes, tributary streams, and grassy meadows. Am I near creatures with human speech? Let me look, and see.»
(The Odyssey)

There you are, I’m done with my secret Ikarian coves. Some say I shouldn’t have given them out, that I should have kept the secret etc. I thought so myself years ago. But I have changed my mind. Though these places are marked in the latest map as «swimming spots» ≅ the fact is that they are hardly accessible to the average summer visitor O_o So I doubt if you meet anybody there but an occasional cow or goat. Nevertheless, be respectful and careful and let others enjoy them too. Check out a few related old entries of our blogs if you wish. We have been going there since 2007 and as long as we can, we will still go! Who knows, some day a shipwrecked Odysseus may land at our feet.

In Eleni's blog : Αφιερωμένο στην Αθηνά και σε κανέναν άλλον! In my blog: Εξερευνώντας την ακτογραμμή, ξαφνικά ανακαλύψαμε μια θερμοπηγή! - As we were exploring the coastline, all of a sudden we discovered a warm spring in the sea! In my blog : 'Ημαστε στη παραλίτσα της Αγίας Παρασκευής (προστάτιδος της υγείας των οφθαλμών) στη βορειοανατολική Ικαρία. In my blog : καλό καλοκαίρι σε όλους και όλες! In my blog : Back to land, near the sea, inside the sea, hidden paths, hidden places. In my blog : Unexpected discoveries inside an unbelievably beautiful secret cove and mountain gorge in Ikaria.

HAVE A GREAT WILD SUMMER!

This is all for the time being and I think it’s more than enough. I am sorry that I can’t take you by the hand and take you to these places. You will have to find them on your own. I am also aware that this list lacks personal touch. Please forgive me for having no time for that either. You can get a bit of that in previous entries of our blogs, for example at :
