sweet spot pink sunset

 a song. a walk. a month till holidays. 

Monday, July 7, 2014


This is either my most unproductive phase photo-wise or i need to zoom out and re-think things.
A walk around the neighborhood on a very hot day makes things better. for a day at least.
If it weren't for fantasmenios, i wouldn't be listening to new songs.

stupid things

Life's going at fast forward the past few months. and this blog's been neglected.
in between humidity, temperatures I haven yet to experience, drawings, and hours spent looking at Autocad… between swimming and paddle surfing, running on the treadmill in the comfort of my building's a/c…. between good news and bad news, good days and bad days, lazy days and days to come… I remind myself of this blog and feel guilty for neglecting it.
Here's some out takes from this week's imatiothiki. At an apartment building in Dubai Marina, with a decent space for kids to play in and a super cool Barbara posing for me. 
Let's all play this song in our cars, pull down our windows, let the wind make a mess of our hair and - snap - get back to reality.

things that occasionaly cross my mind

things that went through my mind this week:
i miss my friends a lot. they do cool stuff.
one day i want my heart to be as soft as this
i could dance all night wearing this dress.
birthdays are a good excuse to make your wall look fancy.
neon supermarket trolleys are always a nice idea. as seen above.
being sick sucks. it sucks when you're at home. it sucks when you're abroad.
oh, and here is why i will quit wearing make up. a ha.

la plage

a day off and a birthday is all it takes to blow my mind away and make me lazier than ever.
jbr beach in dubai is one great party on a friday, i tell you.
super star of the day would be the indian guys posing for their friends, sending underwear worn as bathing suits pictures to their loved ones back home, making them green with envy. i presume.

the beauty of flour

feels like ages since my last post. 
and a lot has happened leaving me with slim to none time to spare and lots of happiness in between all that busyness. 
but busy is good, and happiness is even better. 
i guess it's good, not to pause your creativity in order to live something creative. ha!

on my last imatiothiki session i met khalid, a very talented emirati who took me on a walk around dubai's old neighborhoods. 

that's where i saw this young bread maker. he seemed so tranquil and almost ethereal in his white space, air filled with a cloud of flour making the whole experience kind of like a dream.

this song if for the people that make other people feel like they're living a dream. you rock.

obsessing over houses and reflections

even though this is a rather abstract picture, i love how the light reflects on the wall. that's a small corner of anna's apartment, featured tomorrow on imatiothiki
i have been obsessing over houses the past few days. it all started when i was asked to be the guest editor for a greek website over a weekend, and all my ideas screamed housing. 
so i spent a fair amount of time admiring this amazing idea. i say yes to living in a floating house and yes to living on top of a patisserie. 
but then this caught my eye, due to the reflections again, i guess.
and then i listened to this song and that's that. 
i am off to the beach now.

rave tapes and creek blues

here's to guys relaxing on large boxes ready to sail in the gulf
here's to amazing cities
here's to realities that are miles away from my own little universe
here's to white roses and smiles
here's to you mogwai
