I like to have a camera in my bag, when I'm outdoors. Every moment may be "magic"...

About

Born in Piraeus, Greece, in 1953.
I've studied architecture at the Polytechnic School Of University of Thessaloniki, GREECE, I've diploma since 1977, maintaining an architectural projects Office. I "knew" and began working with B&W photography since 1973, spending a lot of meters of B&W film and many hours in the darkroom.
My first equipment was an EXAKTA VX500 with Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 50mm f/2.8, later EXAKTA RTL1000 with Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50mm f/1.8, Meyer-Optic Primotar 135mm f/3.5, Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 & Vivitar 200mm f/3.5, Sigma 18mm f/2.8, ZENIT 122 with HELIOS-44M-6 - 58mm f/2, also ZENIT 80 (6x6, like old Hasselblad). Architecture, landscapes, street photography were my main favorite themes, winning several awards in photographic competitions in Greece.
In 2003 I got my first digital camera, an OLYMPUS C-50Z, then a MINOLTA DiMAGE 7, Canon EOS 400D, PENTAX X70, Rollei Flexline 200, OLYMPUS VR310, Canon PowerShot SX30 IS, Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ72, Canon EOS 550D, Canon EOS 600D, Canon EOS 60D and Canon EOS 700D. The "arsenal" of my lens for Canon is as follows: Canon EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF-S17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II, EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III, EF28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, EF35-105mm f/3.5-4.5, EF55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM, EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II, EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 II USM, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM , Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM, Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro. Next plan the FF Canon EOS 6D, and go on... I also use almost all of my old lens with Canon EOS cameras.
Themes noted above, furthermore macro, zoom in flowers or plants, birds and cats, or everything I see and like it, are the themes of my photos today, mainly color, unfortunately rarely B&W.

10/04/2017 was a very bad day for me. I went to my office in the morning and I saw it hacked from the balcony door. All my digital photo equipment (11 cameras + 13 lens for Canon + flashes, tripods, etc) and laptop and many other things, were stolen. I feel like they stole my soul...
Now, I have only a Canon EOS 700D with EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, a present of my sister after the burglary of my office and all my camera equipment stolen.
I'll continue to try!!!
