Thessaloniki by night

A night view of Thessaloniki taken from a boat/bar out in the gulf. The ramparts on the hill are always lit up at night.

The White Tower

Here's another holiday snap. The White Tower (it's not all that white, really) is the symbol of the city of Thessaloniki. Here is a picture of it at dusk. A couple of military bods are waiting to lower the flag.

A view of the old town district of Thessaloniki with the ramparts.


Turn round 90 degrees to view the urban jungle that is modern day Thessaloniki.

Liege City Daily Photo is on Holidays

You've probably noticed that I've not updated the blog in ten days. We're on holidays in Greece and I don't have any recent Liege photos to upload. So I've decided to take the blog on holidays too. For the next month or so we'll have Liege City Daily Photos on location in northern Greece.

Here's a first photo of a sunset in Halkidiki. Storm clouds are looming and the sun does its best to break through.


Here's what happened when the clouds caught up with us eventually

It's been a while since I've posted a panoramic view of Liege. Here's one on a reasonably sunny day

Bastille Day

Allons enfants de la patri-i-e! The Liegois love the French and they celebrate the 14th of July (Bastille Day) with fireworks. They were launched from the Heliport and flew over the river. Here's a few of them.

Madonna and child

A religious subject for today: one of the countless madonna shrines in the city. This one is from the Impasse des Ursulines. Ave Maria.

Save council housing

A couple of 'Save council housing' posters, an italian flag, stamps and various other stickers make this window interesting. The Rue Pierreuse is in the reflection.

Life is hard

Cats can slouch on pretty much anything. Here's the proof. Tower under construction included for scale.

Trainers in the sky

Apparently, it's quite a popular activity amongst students after their exams.

Village Gaulois

The spire of the cathedral viewed from inside the Village Gaulois. It's not Gaulish and it's not a village but there's plenty of food and drink in it. It's a temporary food and drink market in the Place Saint Paul and it will be here until July 14, Bastille Day.
