Spending $$$$$ on photography gear & sharing nice pictures VS discussing financials with free screenshots. A clear winner decided by Facebook engagement stats.

I feel like "Friends" main actors who were associated with that role for eternity despite taking part in movies or other TV series.

Whatever I try, I'll always be known as Jim, the advantage gambler, the trader, the poker player.

Build a brand, stay with the brand, I guess.

If you look closely I'm filming a stork but the light is dying. If only it wasn't that cloudy on tonight's sunset. #f

Blurry summer, just because I did long exposure as the light in the middle of the day was terrible.

Leaving Skyros island on a warm sunrise this summer. I may hate packing and traveling but I never get tired of running up and down the ferry boat's stairs with my cameras, filling up their tiny storage cards.
