Lockdown Photowalks

Lockdown Photowalks: The End of 2020

It is finally coming to the end of 2020 and I am sure we are all looking forward to putting this terrible year behind us. I have been remarkably lucky in that I haven’t got sick and I haven’t lost my job. I am eternally grateful for that. I will not go into details on a public blog but some of my family members have suffered and are still suffering from a truly awful year. Yesterday, Vishy and I ventured on a long lockdown exercise walk up Lofos Elikonos (Helix Hill) that we discovered last year. It was wonderful looking down on the city below and across to the mountain range of Parnitha.

As you can see it was a beautiful day with blue sky and incredible white clouds that I am totally obsessed with. The air was incredibly fresh. It was incredible to take off our masks and just look out over the quiet city and just breathe. It’s the simple things in life that are the most precious.

This is also an area with a lot of these brick chimneys. I am not sure what they were for but we guessed this one might be from an old brickworks.

A beautiful day. A beautiful walk. Slightly aching calves today for some reason but well worth it. And also a rare opportunity (these days) for some photography. We are planning another longer trip for tomorrow or Thursday depending on the weather. I wish you all a peaceful and hopeful end to 2020.

Thank you for reading.
