Title: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: TerryW on August 08, 2007, 01:15:09 PM
Dimitris, I hope it is ok to start this "topic" and could you make it a "Sticky please?

This is a Photograph A to Z of our ( the forum members) holiday memories. There are no rules to this except people post one photo at a time with the next letter in the alphabet. This could be a placename, taverna, natural feature, animal etc etc - use your imagination. I wonder how many times we can go through the alphabet?

So here is the first one

A for Armourada

Try the details I did yesterday Sue ..........

http://www.arillas.com/page/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,165/topic,2302.msg23026

This should work but if it doesn't try Viv's method, or try Viv's method first

I will try to do a video/screenshot guide.

Hi Terry & Smiffy,

It was taken up at Sandy and Joyce's house which is not too far from us.  Their house has a million dollar view don't you think? 

I'm not too good with all the techie stuff but it seems that my photo has lost some of it's definition when I downsized it.

Just gone into filehigh Terry, just waiting for an activation email.. thats the easy part.  now go to try and do the rest!
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: TerryW on August 09, 2007, 05:05:11 PM
You can do it Sue!!!!
 

Activation usually takes seconds but it doesn't like hotmail addresses,

It doesnt like mine, its taking ages.  Also I cant remember what I have to do from there.  I will get back to you if I get stuck.

I am getting a bit fed up now with waiting for the filehigh thing.  Anyone else have an idea how I can add a photo please.

I registered about half an hour ago and my activation email came straight through within seconds. 
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu

Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: TerryW on August 09, 2007, 06:07:21 PM
Sue

Go To www.filehigh.com

login as arillasforum   password = corfu

I set this up to have a practice on. Because you are using filehigh as a storage area purely for this forum you needn't worry about confidentiality. All the photos you store will be published on the forum. It is really just a remote storage area for forum photographs.

Lots of users could use it.

I finally managed to work it out..but I didn't do it on my own...my 34 year old son came to the rescue after seeing my plight and has conquered filehigh...here is the frog!

"O.K this is how I did it, but maybe others will have other methods....

    * Go to http://www.imageshack.us/
    * Click on the browse tab and select your pic from file

    * Type in your email address
    * Use the drop-down menu to re-size your image according to where you are posting it.

    * Then click host it
    * A few seconds later another page will appear on the screen, scroll down it until you come down to the box titled 'Direct Link to Image'.  Copy and paste the text in the box

    * Now onto the Arillas Forum.
    * When in the Post reply text box go up to the icons which run along the top of the box and choose the Insert Image icon.  The icon is like a little picture.(it is next to the one that looks like a spinning (wheel)

    * This text will appear (img) (/img)  Between the two sets of brackets insert the code which you copied and pasted from the Imageshack page.

      There you go, that's the best explanation I can do, give it a try...good luck smiley

Smiffy - I am disappointed in you, I was expecting some photos from you ...... come on ....get em up.

Blondegirl, Could the lady in the Journey home pic, be the mystery lady from the beach with clothes on. She could be carrying supplies for the donut man.

I think some photographs can invoke a kind of story in your head. Maybe we could have a weekly "add a caption" post. Someone posts a photo and we have a week to add captions, then at the end of each week Dimitris could pick a winner. It all helps to fend off severe Arillusitis.

Just back from camping in Wales, this thread seems to have taken off well! Nice one Terry. I have just had a look at the Imageshack website but will have to suss it out properly later. I use Fotopic and post links to pictures on there.

http://www.fotopic.net/

Thing is, I cant find a picture of anything that starts with an X,Y or Z from all of the photos I took while I was there! When's your X coming up Eggy and Viv and Blondegirl's Z's?

Yammas (clue!) for now,

The following web sites give lots of words and many can be tailored to describe a photograph eg:-  xylopolist ......   one who sells wood - could be used for olive wood.

Try it, it does help, and you can show off with a vast vocabulary.

Ok here is my X - xenodocheionology (love of hotels) and I loved this one.......Marino can be seen on the deck and the web cam can be seen.

Hi pg32

Cicada's are the insects that make this sound.

Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Lozicle on August 15, 2007, 12:52:01 PM
A cicada is an insect of the order Hemiptera, suborder Auchenorrhyncha, in the superfamily Cicadoidea, with large eyes wide apart on the head and usually transparent, well-veined wings. There are approximately 2,500 species of cicada around the globe, and many remain unclassified. Cicadas live in temperate to tropical climates where they are one of the most widely recognized of all insects, mainly due to their large size and remarkable (and often inescapable) acoustic talents.
Cicadas do not bite or sting, are benign to humans, and are not considered a pest. Many people around the world regularly complement their standard diet with cicadas: the female is prized for eating as it is meatier. Cicadas have been eaten (or are still eaten) in Ancient Greece, China, Malaysia, Burma, Australia, Latin America and the Congo.

So there ya go !
That particular one was about 2 - 3 inches long. Ugly little bugger too.

By all means Terry, you're very welcome to use the image :)

Post by: Eileen on August 15, 2007, 01:05:28 PM
2-3 inches long...yeuch.   Despite the deafening noise they make, which seems to reach a crescendo in the early evening, I've yet to see one.  I'm going to keep my peepers open now that I know what they actually look like.

The dancing was so funny. In one dance you had to put your hand between your legs so the person behind you could hold it and you had to hold the persons hand in front of you and then walk in a line.

The next day after doing this we were doing the San Stefanos walk and met a couple and I realised that the bloke was the person in front of me doing the dancing and his partner was the girl behind me. We exchanged hello's and I said to the bloke " do you realise that your partner had her hands between my legs last night, and I had my hands between yours". They were a lovely couple and we had a good laugh about it.

mazzz - if you read this post ........ we did swing a bit whilst doing the "holding the hands between the legs walk!!!!!!!

Noufris is the middle right of the picture in green. Just after we took this he fowled an opponent, well away from the ball, and when the ref wasn't looking. They carried the guy off. After the match he told us the chap kept pulling his shirt.
So moral of story is " When at Brouklis do not do this to attract his attention "

The pitch is what they call a Division 3 pitch. Like a very fine grit which, I'm told hurts, when you hit the ground. ( Div 1 play on astroturf - not sure on Div 2 )

Note the spectators. This maybe a Greek way of "Crowd Control"
( 1 supporter per team - and they're probably cousins ! )
In honesty they did have a lot of support.

The photo at the Galini is interesting because the couple on the left, sitting  at the table, were at Brouklis when we had our first meal there on the second day of our holiday. They were from Yorkshire and we had a lovely chat to them. It was them who pointed you out as "blondegirl" from the forum.

On my photo, which was taken at Brouklis, I have just realised that you can see Dimitris just over my right shoulder.

Thats right, thats Peter and Evie from Leeds I think they come from.  They are such a lovely couple. I hit it off with Evie straight away and we had such a laugh last year at the Galini in the swimming pool and it was great to meet up with them again this year.  I think thats what made the holiday even better this year was meeting up again.  You always meet some very nice people in Arillas.

I remember we first met you at the Brouklis when we were looking at Demitris and Litsas wedding album.

We went to a "friendly" game in Crete one year.  Some friends were playing at midnight and  obviously floodlit, they had all finished work and it was much cooler to play then.  It was quite enjoyable sitting outside at nice cafe tables with a drink chatting when the men were glued to the game.  Another happy experience to remember.

Pecked Hen!  I remember seeing her with a very old lady under those steps when we walked to Afionas  They all seem to wear those opened out scarves dont they.

She didn't speak English but was quite happy for me to take photo's of her when I mimed my intention.

Yes, the scarves are strange. Did you see the lady on the Rick Stein programme last night with two of them on her head?  One appeared to be just balanced on top of the other!

Hi Everyone - am really enjoying this A to Z photograph theme.  There have been some wonderful pictures - and many of them have brought back splendid memories.
Thought I'd try for the C slot this time with COCKTAILS - its Marino at the Horizon doing his thing making a couple of strawberry mahitos for Julia and I on our wedding aniversary on 14th June 2007.
All the best

Hi Terry!

:-) Yes it is the Panorama view from the Horizon!
From the appartment under the roof!
I have another nice Panorama picture from the Horizon, from the front!
I will post it!
The picture from Afionas I maked from the plane in Mai! On the way to Corfu!
I have some more, but no one from Arillas :-( In that moment Arillas was under me!
Maybe I can make one next month. Than I will sit on the left side of the plane! I try :-)

I agree with Marika, its the middle one by the pool. I bet you get your drinks delivered to you there.

I wish I was there now. A nice Greek salad for lunch, a few Mythos, a swim mmmmmmm......but alas I am at work dreaming zzzzzzzzz

Hi Mareka & Terry
You are right about the room at the Horizon - it is number 002 - the one in the middle on the ground floor.

So for G what about Good Morning World - shot taken around 8.30am one fine June morning this year from the balcony of room 002

If I remember correctly it is rather unsurprisingly called the Panorama.  We have occasionally stopped off for coffees, it's a handy half way point if meeting up with someone for Corfu town!

P.S I just love these unusual photos that are appearing these days.

Terry - Very good panoramic picture

Very interesting photos all round.

PatrickJohn - Lovely picture of "G" ( Horizon ) but concerned about the "I"
The last time I had a picture taken of me, in speedos, I jokingly remarked taking a career as a male model. The reply was  " Don't give up yer day job "
( That is a piece of plant sneaking it's way behind your legs is is not ?)

I wonder how Big Gus is. I think he went backto America. Not sure.

Hopefully If I can time it right I'll get my poor contribution in for a "Z" soon.

Hello again
Glad you liked the Early Morning shot at the Horizon, Eggy.  It was the reflections in the pool that made it for me.  Sorry the Speedos from Ina's Minimarket were not quite to your taste.  Perhaps I'm not cut out for the male modelling either - they don't seem to go for the mature male, do they?
By the way, the sneeky plant, I was told, was called something like 'Countess Sarah', but couldn't find anyone who could tell me if it was a variety of hibiscus or something else.  It was certainly very beatiful - so perhaps the title of my photo should have been beauty and the beast!
Marika keeps coming up with some good ones - I always wondered why the bench was behind the bush - there must be a good reason - its obviously not for the view.
Now we just need an M to keep the pot boiling and to move on towards Z for Eggy.
Best wishes

Hi everyone
It must be time for A again.
This time its A for ALBANIA.
(Eggy please avert your eyes because there are Speedos in this one again).
Yes I know its me in  my snorkel gear on the beach at Saint Spiridon, but if you look closely the background mountains are in Albania.

(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee60/patjmcn/File0023PJMStSpiridonBeachCorfu.jpg)

This pic was taken in 2004 and I'd just swum out to the little island with the flag on it.  When I got back to the beach my dear wife was asleep and had missed my heroic efforts - she did say she would take a photograph though and you see the result.
Best wishes to all the splendid contributors to this thread and especially to Terry who started it.

Yes, Shuey, there are quite a few buildings like that. Isn't the architecture wonderful and the rustic colours add to the attraction. I wonder if there any hotels like that as it would be lovely to stay in one for a night.

I was actually thinking of doing that next July, drive to Corfu Town, see the night life, stay the night and then drive to the south of the island.

I do quite like the idea of staying in Corfu town for a night, especially if we are going to travel to South Corfu. We could possibly stay a second night on the way back, it depends on cost.

We have booked from 30th June to 14th July Sharon.

No Shuey, I cheat. Because I take the photos on maximum resolution, I can zoom in on areas and copy them as new pictures. It can be quite effective sometimes.

I am running out of photographs now and I am waiting to see some from the people who are returning soon.

PJ

I have been looking in to this problem over the weekend.

Basically you just need to transfer the photos to another "hosting" web site and then edit the relative tag for each photograph posted.

The only problem is with trying to find a "hosting" web site, that will not disappear in the future. The hosting websites have to be funded some how and it is usually from advertisements, popups, etc. and if the funds are not available the site has to be closed down.

I already use Imageshack and Photobucket and it is very easy to go over the storage limit.

I am going to dual source my photos so that each photograph is stored on two different hosting sites, so that if one does go bump, it will be easy  to edit the links and I will not have to re-upload my pictures.

The link below contains a list hosting web sites.

I like those photos you mentioned. I noticed there is one of the "ruin" for sale in Arillas a couple of years ago - just down the road from the Captains. It's been like that for the last 15 years, but sometimes someone goes and puts a strimmer all round to spruce the place up a bit. I think the whole structure would need to be pulled down - but maybe someone will come along one day and snap it up. Never found out how much they wanted for it.....

Also one of the sunset and Gravia.

Mike loved the picture Terry... I have emailed it to him so he has his own personal copy... thanks for that..

PJ ... I have no idea what he was watching... each episode seems the same to me.. full of aliens and nonsense! I have lived with it for over 35 years now (Star Trek and Mike come as a package!) although, he doesn't watch so many now as he has seen them all but isnt averse to seeing them all over again if he could.  I am not impelled to watch it at all and will quite happily wander off and do my "own thing" knowing he is happy, bless him!

Sharon, the Latin night is great fun. I had to dance (well make a fool of myself) two weeks running, with the girl dancer. I was knackered, but it was worth it just to have to put my hands around her and to feel her silky dress mmmm.   Blondegirl (Sue) and her friend Lynn were very good dancers.

The Greek night on a Thursday is fun as well, and I think you should go and then volunteer to dance on the table. Then you can publish the photos when you get back.

As for the food, its all good, but try Mary's homemade cherry cheesecake, its really nice.

I'm jealous...........I want to go again, next July is too far away!!!!!!

Only once have the dancers tried to get me and Mike to dance on a table and we politely declined then and will always say no..... you cant find a table big enough or strong enough..  LOL.!  At the Horizon I was so glad  they didn't ask me(as if they would have) I like to dance but not that much! ... the guy was a pretty big guy, well he had huge thighs anyway and there just wouldn't have been room for me as well... the girl that was there was embarrassingly close though, thought she was a lap dancer!  I don't think it is very Greek dance though.  We always laugh at our videos of Mike dancing with a glass on his head, you can hear us in the background shrieking with laughter.

Super Photo.
First time we came to Greece, Zakynthos, we had a mantis by our studios.
It was the first I had ever seen.
I spent 6 months in Spain as a student and never saw one.
My picture was not a patch on this.

Dear Blondegirl
Thanks for the feedback.  Its very pleasing to get an opinion posted, especially when its a kind one.
Must say that sunset watching in Arillas is what most of us love, except that when I met Dimitris at the Brouklis, he said his father never went down to watch the sunset.
Ah well - it takes all sorts.

Thanks for pointing that out Jo, I love old photos like that.

Dimitris,

Ebay is a good source for old postcards. Yesterday I did an Ebay search for "Postcards Corfu" and found some. If a search is done on a regular basis, I am sure some of Arillas will turn up.

Here is one from yesterday

Hi Terry,

Collecting Corfu postcards is a little hobby of mine.

I have a fairly large collection of postcards which I've collected over the last 3 years.  I've still to find an Arillas card in all my cyber searches, but I keep trying.  I am on the mailing list of an auction house in Athens and still no luck there either.

It's amazing where the postcards turn up.  I've bought them from people in Israel, Italy, USA, Canada and Spain to name a few.

Would you believe the most expensive postcards are not of places but people, especially in national dress...needless to say my collection is mostly made up of Corfu town and villages, including the one you have uploaded.

I've not added to my collection for a few months, I must get things moving again when I come back from Corfu.

Thats a lovely hobby Eileen. I just like old photographs anyway. Maybe we should start a new topic for Old photos.

Here is a site with lots of old photos of Corfu. It makes me wish I could read Greek.

http://oldkerkyraphoto.blogspot.com/

and some historic information here ...  http://users.otenet.gr/~psailasn/index6.htm

Post by: patrickjohn on September 21, 2007, 01:10:52 PM
Yes - what an interesting hobby, and its great when there is a theme to it, perhaps an old Arillas card will turn up soon.

Since this is the A to Z theme thought I'd progress to T with TABLE for TWO taken in Arillas 2007.  Can't remember the name of the taverna, but its the one just up a little way north of the Horizon towards the main street.

It was a good meal (aren't they all in Arillas) - Stiffado for me and Mousaka for my better half (who kindly took the photo).

Best wishes

We collect really nice postcards of the islands etc.. and made a couple of large collages of them and they are on our kitchen wall. They are always constant reminders of where we have been - one is of different local people and the other is of different buildings/homes/architecture etc.  I want to do another one just of sea/boats/beach scenes.  They are a talking point when people visit as they try and pick out the places they have been too, also a few of our own photos are in there which are nice.  You could do a collage of the different sunsets in Arillas.

These are the only pictures I haven't packed yet for our impending/canceled move and I am so glad about that so I can have something nice to look at.

Hi Jo
As an Arillas Regular Visitor I guess you just know these things.
I remember that while we were eating at Kosta's the little group with the accordian player came round and we thought it was great.  That was the first we'd seen of them, but then we discovered they were around most nights.

If  we're still on "K"
"K" is for koncrete. - Well nearly because there is no Greek letter "C"

(http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/9761/uconcretewm6.jpg)

This is what is going on as I type. The crane lorry, which is linked to the concreting lorry, had to go over the house to reach, what will be the patio area, on the other side. He then needs to move the pipe to the front of the house to create the pathway. All done by his remote control, strapped to his waist. Hope he avoids the TV Aerial and Sat Dish we had put up yesterday.!!!!
I tried to get a photo of our Agent but he was moving too fast and shouting at anyone around him . He's currently washng off the cement that splashed all up the side wall.
( Under pressure or what ! )
I'm hiding indoors - Last thing they want is a spectator.

We quite often get a crane in to move the house if the sun is in the wrong place.

Terry
I thought we were stlll on "K"
Housewarming party?? - We may have this in December/January because if I can warm the house without the expenditure of oil fired heating costs then Hurrah!!

EEG
If the forum descended our house Mrs Egg would be pleased to welcome you all, panic about what food to offer, and then divorce me when you all left!!!

So you thought they were trying to move the house as well? - You certainly "know your Onions" - But then you should because you've just come back from Spain.

Yes Sharon, it was taken on the Wednesday of our first week.  After taking that photo we went along to Ag.Georgios for lunch on the seafront.  We were able to watch the excitement of the enormous waves from under the plastic covers of the Snackshack.
 
My daughter and I were treated to the sight of a few large, macho and handsome greek guys braving the seas...lunch was so enjoyable that day!!! ;-)  Alas, with my attention diverted I forgot to take more photos!!

Hi Everyone
There have been some stunning pictures on this thread, but I think Marika must have given us the best one so far.  What a standard to set for the rest of us.  Please show us more Marika.

There's something about looking at my photo that wants to make me hide in the bathroom for 6 months.
The sort of feeling you get after mixing 3 Ouzos with Baileys and drinking as one.

( I'm only glad you haven't got the one of me with speedos on )
Forgot - Sorry - Terry W got hold of that one!.

That is a great photo. I'm just wondering if I could print it and enlarge to picture size.
It would look really good in a frame.
Maybe Terry W has some advice .

Thanks :-), that you all like my picture! It is one of my best!
I maked it at 2:00 in the night with a special programm in my camera!
To make photos like this you need time ( 30sec - 1min) and a tripod.
With the same programm I maked the picture of the Horizon in the night!
But I had luck, it was the night before fullmoon!
So the night it is a bit lighter, that makes it a bit easier!
I think I can't top it, but I have some more nice ones!

Viv => you have pictures from me in the Horizon! I am so looking forward to see them!
           And can you send me the pictures? That will be very nice!

I have a look If I have a nice picture from me, in the Horizon!
OK! Time for the next picture :-)

Marika,

I think you should open an exhibition of your photographs, in Arillas, and sell prints. I would love to see the photos at A3 size (420mm x 297mm)or larger. and I would definitely buy one.

Do you have a web site to display themon?

TerryW
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Marika on October 21, 2007, 11:13:11 PM
Hi Terry!

That is a good idea, an exhibition of my photographs. I must think about that :-)
Hmmm! I have no web side, I am thinking about that a long time,
but I don't know how it works and how much is it!
Because I have so many pictures and I don't know witch side I need (how many GB or ?)
But I have a name for the web side :-) "Marikas dream" or something like that!
I will see!
And here I have another one :-)
Very funny, I saw, you make the same, only a bit different! HaHaHa!

Hi Everyone
This picture was taken on my first visit to Arillas in 2003, just after buying some souvenirs in Ina's Minimarket.  We stayed in Sidari that time, hired cycles for the first week and then a little car for the second week.  Exploring the north of the island we found Arillas and were very impressed.

Thats an interesting sign, John the Ref. I like the way cement and small rocks have been used with the supporting piece of wood to create a mobile sign.

Oh no........... this could mean we get Real Estate Businesses Posting Pics on the forum, as its very tempting to phone the number.

Hi EEG

That's another great picture of our favourite place.
What a wonderful place to be.  Am very envious and can hardly wait until our visit next May.

Remember having great fun this year in June, in the Horizon pool, trying to get on somebody's Lilo.  My wife thought my feeble attempts a great hoot and took these pictures.

Patrick John, did you notice how the drain cover by the pool had been painted to make it look like crazy paving? I thought it was a clever thing to do, and well crafted as well. Its little things like that make a place special.

Hi Paul
Like the picture of the propped up boat - very ingenious.

Hi Terry
I agree about the Horizon.  A high level of attention to detail makes a place just that bit special and out of the ordinary.  Marino, Mary, Andrew, and Stephania (the Bulgarian clearner) all worked hard just to make our holiday memorable.

Best wishes to all Forum Members and Guests.

Hello marika, i must say you take some brilliant photo's, is that a star in the background or a mark on our screen?!  How do you do it because everytime we take a photo at night with the sky in it its rubbish!

One English word that you could have used is Magical, because the way you have captured the different changes in the lighting is  magical, and I can also see what appears to be a star.

Wundervoll

Hi!
us24evr -> Thank you :-)  Yes it is a star :-)
                 I make this kind of pictures with a special program in the camera.
                  It need 30 - 60 sec to take a picture like that.
riggers  -> For sure it is a star and no dust on the lens.
                 On some other pictures of mine,
                 special the one with the tree, you can see more stars.
                 Hmmm! I want see pictures from you too,
                 if you say you are professional and they are so good! ;-) :-)
TerryW ->  Thank you Terry :-) :-) And you found the right name for the picture :-)
                  I have another one!

It always makes us smile when we see the H & S standards in greece when building works are going on..... really scary scaffolding..  You dont see anyone wearing goggles, gloves or even work boots.

  my daughter works for Lang Orourke, Crownhouse contractors and she is always looking at scaffolding and cranes etc... when we go past any building works.

Hi Paul, we are working on council renovations., my employers are contracted to the main contractor to the housing trust.  I am responsible for the brickies, plasterers, tilers and internal demolition.  Everyday is different, which is great.  BG, i'm like your daughter, once you are involved with H&S it's hard to take the hat off!xx

Marika, your pictures are so well constructed and thought out, you MUST start to sell them. The artist in you can't be held down. I will buy one but there is a much bigger market out there for you. Start doing people - you will make wonderful thoughtful and watchable pictures of all of us. You've got the technical, but you've also got the art...

with best wishes

Phil of philandjen

Hi together!
I don't know what I can say!
I would not really have expected so a large resonance!
That makes me very lucky!
Thank you Phil for your beautiful words!
I must say thank you to Eggy, Sharon, Smiffy, Lynn/Colin, Pauline.......
You all make me strong, maybe to find a new way in my life!
It is not easy, because we have so many Photo graph in the world.
They learned it for few years, have special cameras.....
And still for them it is not easy to find jobs.
And than I come with my little camera. But I hope my dream is coming true.
But you all make me happy, because you all like my photos.
To make photos for professional is my dream!
And you can be safe, that you all get your poster!
The poster have ca. the size 40x55cm!
More largely does not go unfortunately because the pictures have not enough pixel,
otherwise those become in a diffuse way.
Pauline, I write you to my customers :-)
I make a list now with the names and which picture you want!
So tell me what pictures you like to have!

And at the end I must say something to you all!
I saw so many pictures here and I can say, all of you make beautiful, lovely pictures!

Thanks Marika x x x x

Just back in action - had a nasty dose of Spanish Tummy yesterday. Funny I never get that in Arillas....

Lovely pics as usual Marika - the forum's "first lady of photography."

Jen an me would also love to buy a calendar. We have so many ideas rattling round in our heads - perhaps a www.arillas.com calendar, using forum colour scheme, featuring only our dedicated forum photographers and Arillas pics, resume's on the back, available online to forum members and visitors, can be bought in Ailllas too, big push to sell at Christmas etc etc. The forum pulled off the song (before our time sadly, but we still play it now and then) and I am sure we could do this.

What a fantastic promotion for the forum, the village, the photographers and all....

We could all vote for the 12 (?) pics online to make the content truly democratic if that is what we want.

Any views? We hope we can do something like this.

Best wishes
phil and jenny

Hi  Phil and Jen, Eggy, riggers, John, SharonF, Sandy, Lynn/Colin, Smiffy....
and all my lovely friends!

You make me crying :'(
You are all soooooooooooo beautiful!
I have no words!
"I make very good photos" you all say!
Since if I was a small child I like to make photos.
Everybody was laughing about that,
because everywhere I went I had my camera with me.
You never seen me without that. But I can say a lot of them are not really good.
Than I came to Corfu and 2 years after I get my first Digital camera.
and in that year I discovered my passion for the photography.
I would have never expected, that I am praised in such a way for it, as from you!
All of you make my feeling in the moment very high,
in a momentary very difficult time for me.
That is why I can cry! You all make me very happy, with your lovely words for my photos!
THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!

With a lot of love
Marika x x x

Marika, you see what we don't until you capture it on film. Then we see it. That is what art is about. Horizon pool poster looks like an African river. Our friends stand and stare at it. Filipos just shrugged, bent his knees and looked at us in disbelief (BTW he will be back here shortly.)

Have you thought about portraits? You would be brilliant there too. Whoever took Dimitris and Bebis had Jenny dictating a post on the forum. Beautiful. She said "perhaps Marika took it?"

I am serious about a calendar -  it would be a treasure for both Jen and me. It could also help Dimitris and the forum.

with love

Hi PG32
About the house on the headland.  We walked up to it last year and it was closed up and seemed unfinished.  We enquired about it and were told the owner live(s)d in San Stefanos, had had a dream to build it all his life, but now that it was nearly complete he'd got a serious illness and couldn't complete it.
Anyone know better?

We have got one of those digital photo frames that we have never used, didnt know how to download the photos... our son came round and I found all the photos I had of Arillas etc... and he has put them on this frame.  I was so excited because now I have all our holiday snaps and sunsets of Arillas constantly changing in the living room and everyone that visits can see how lovely Arillas is.  A permanent daily reminder whenever I walk into the room.  Just need some music I think!

Hi Terry

You've jumped 16 letters, you need to give me/others time to find things.
PATIENCE.......man......!!!!!!! - A cat has patience
I have photos for many other letters but I didn't want to just monopolise the game, I was waiting for the correct letter order.
Now lets start again LOL (CAUSE YOUR CHEATING!!!!!!!!)

The only words I can find for this letter is tree or forest.   Have you any good photos of a Greek tree or forest?

Gata and Marika, I think your Greek is a 1000 times better than mine, it takes me hours to translate and find suitable words that can be turned into photographs. Some lovely photos. I loved the dancing one Marika.

I am finding this web site a great help http://www.kypros.org/cgi-bin/lexicon

I just have to assume that the translations are accurate.

Marika, there is a free ( you can donate ) photo editng program here

And thanks for that programm .)
I tried it few month ago,
I found it in the internet too, if I had a look for free programms,
but it was not working!
I had that on my old computer. So, that is why I had a look for it!
But no problem, I have 4 other programms on my computer :D

Thanks Gata, Terry and Marika. Some really wonderful photos - please keep them coming!

My favourite is Marika's Θάλαοοα. (My greek is even worse - I cut and pasted it in there...)

The child (or it could be anyone - so intriguing) set in the corner of a fantastic darkly lit but sunny sea and the beach so equally inviting and dangerous. An amazing picture.

Riggers - Fluent ? - Not really but picking up a little more every day. I can read much better due to watching bits of Greek TV.
( English Films with Greek subtitles seem a good way to learn )

Thet Greek Language and People book is about 15 years old and Hugo's Learn Greek in 3 months? - Well I bought that about 6 years ago and I've nearly got to the end!
Siga Siga as the Greeks say.

So... N (ni ) is for ντοματα (dthomata )

Gata and Marika, I think your Greek is a 1000 times better than mine, it takes me hours to translate and find suitable words that can be turned into photographs. Some lovely photos. I loved the dancing one Marika.

TerryW

Terry I know what you mean.  I have to think of a Greek word for the letter and my Greek vocabulary is very limited and gets worse the longer I'm away from Arillas.  Once I get a word I then have to find a photo that matches the word.  Its just about took up my whole weekend!!! But its been fun looking through my Arillas photos again.

φυτο - Is plant - ( Fyto )

Don't wanna be a smart ass but have you confused this letter with ΨΙ (PSI) .
Αs in ΨΑΡΙ - psari - Fish.

Or have I got totally confued with the greek alphabet?

Eggy,

According to my book and Babel Fish, φυτο is plant. I haven't confused it with Ψ because that is the letter I am currently looking at. There are bound to be quite a few discrepencies with these words because for all I know plant could be as Heavy Lifting Plant.

What we need now, is for someone to make a recording of the correct pronounciation of these words and upload to a website so we can listen to them.

Eggy and Dimitris,

What is the history of the "taverna" picture? It is an intriguing photograph that looks like a painting, or is it a painting? It really does show a delightful picture of daily Arillas  life. Very peacefull.

You're right that the pronounciation is important. We played one the the Pimsleur learn greek tapes the other day and realised we had a couple of simple words quite wrong with the accents. Learn from mistakes is what we still do.

That Taverna picture was a postcard that Dimitris super imposed my face on. The "me" on the end was my forum photo for a very long time.

The best I can think off, with the help of a Greek Dictionary, is - ωνια (onia )
It means provisions/Goods. - So come on someone and take a picture of your food cupboard. -

ώ Ω is a difficult one, but I think this is OK. I have looked through lots of my photographs of Corfu and Kefalonia and realised that not many public buildings have clocks, or I have always missed them.

I don't understand/know "αριθ  ελαστικό" as no tyre.  I thought the word for "no" was "όχι".  I cant find the word αριθ anywhere.  Where did you see it. 

Eggy: do you know the word?  I like to learn Greek so further info would be helpful

I can't type the Greek but do you mean "horis"..."without". They may be sound the same?
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Eggy on March 26, 2008, 04:51:06 PM
Not a word I recognise and Dimitris may correct me here but " θ " which is the Greek θητα - ( Thita ) is never used at the end of a word - May be wrong.

οχι - ochi - is the word for no and can be used as it is at Home.

χωριζ - choris ( "ch" as in Loch - The same with ochi ) is without.

So I suppose you could say "no Tyre" or "without a tyre"

I need to workout how to say in Greek:-
"When I find Terry's hire car it will quickly be without tyres"

History lesson over - I gotta headache now ! 

Anyway - A good εψιλο - (epsilo ) Terry.
Anyone for a ζιτα - (zita) ?

At least I will know how to type κλεμμένος ελαστικό when my hire car has been "Egged".

What would the plural be, if ελαστικό = tyre what would tyres be?

Hi Terry

hope you had a chance to look on Irini's Site.  If you did you may have seen me!!!!!

To answer your question about plural for ελαστικό.  I think by its ending its a neuter word
το ελαστικό = the tyre so therefore the plural may be τα ελαστικα - the tyres.  I may be wrong as that was from my limited knowledge of Greek language rules and once you think you understand the rules some irregularity pops in and throws your understanding into chaos - is there any other learners out there who understand what I mean!
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Eggy on March 26, 2008, 06:52:39 PM
Terry / Gata

Heavy stuff these plurals and I still get a lot wrong. It's a bit of a minefield and a lot of it gets put into memory. A little like how you identify the word "LEAD" within a sentence. "Lead is a metal" or "The dog is on a lead" - That sort of thing.

I'm sure Gata is right on the plural for tyre as most neuter nouns ending in "O" will change to an "A". As will most neuter nouns ending in " I "
Eg - to pedhi - ta pedthia ( Child / Children )

But a feminine noun as in "ee ora" (the hour ) becomes "ores" ( hours)

I've gotta nother headache now!

Cheers

I can slip quite comfortably into Greek after a couple of bevvies. But, quite often. I still struggle to understand as one word can flow into another
Yiasas for example is "hello/goodbye" yia sas can be translated as " for you "

I worry sometimes I will forget a lot of English - Who saw that I put "History lesson" earlier instead of "Greek lesson"? - You were all too polite to tell me!

So - Continue the education - Who's got a "Η - η - ητα" - ita?

I am concerned that not all this banter will be enjoyed by all so c'mon Forum. If you think we should stick a Greek A-Z on another topic make your feelings felt.

ps - I feel like I'm back at school but, for me, it's enjoyable education for a change.

I would love to have a go but my head is still swimming with Urdu words over 6 months of lessons and  I feel like a break from languages.  Give me a few more weeks and I might be able to have a go.  I think one of the problems is learning the phonetics and not really knowing how the words really sound.  The alphabet has got to be a good start though.  The worse part is def. the grammar!

I think its amazing that you are all having a go.  Are you using a greek translator online so as to be able to copy and paste the actual greek writing too?

So with Dans Romanian, Marika with her language (is she from Finland or Sweden), and Italian etc. we should all be able to pick a few other languages too.

The picture of Sea Breeze actually has the road and the sea out of view but running top to bottom of the right hand side.  And Sandy it was like this until 1995 if my memoery serves me right.  We remember grandad and granma sitting there regularly. Grandad had a real twinkle in his eye and always had a tomato in his pocket to give to any ladies that stopped to talk to him.  Sometimes he would sit over the road outside the canopy covered part of the resturaunt that now is.  The road also went on around the bend to Bardis sun as it does now.

The last one is not lettered as it isn't of Arillas but just over the hill (San Stefano) and I believe thats one of Tony's places. And yes the beach is nice.

Sorry for the spelling mistake with the picture but I am dashing about trying to fix up a holiday for my son, his lover and my latest gorgeous granddaughter who will be about 22 months old when they come in October all for the first time. Mick.

Just trying out how to post pictures, my first attempt!

Used 'photobucket'. Set up an account, uploaded my pictures to that site, it then gives you an 'image link' (IMG Code) that you can copy and paste right into the forum. Job done!

Hi
I agree with blondgirl (susieb) that your first attempt Peter & Evie is first class.  Very atmospheric or perhap mysterious look to the island.  Hope its the first of many pics you post.
Looking forward to seeing it myself next week (reminds me must go and get some Euros before they go up any more)
Best wishes

Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Geoffrey with a "G" on May 27, 2008, 01:33:30 PM
blondegirl - if it´s the same dog of Yanni´s I saw in previous years, he told me it had been poisoned and died. He called it Jimmy I believe. I had the dog originally when I lived in Magoulades, and it was called Paska. The house-owner would not allow me to keep it and so Yanni was glad to take it. I saw no dog there last week but Yanni was not there at the time, so hopefully the dog you saw is a new one.
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: blondegirl on May 27, 2008, 03:04:48 PM
I hope he hasnt died.  He was so cute.  The first few days he was running around loose but because of the traffic on that corner of the Sea Breeze he was tied up.  He would always come out from under the bush to say hello and bark like mad when you left him.  He wasnt very old and was a really lovely dog.
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Geoffrey with a "G" on May 27, 2008, 05:11:50 PM
Jimmy/Paska was 4 years old last year, so may not be the same dog you mean. Hope not anyway.

LOL Viv....that was my dad's invention before I bought a patio table. I like it so much I've decided to keep it.....but visitors beware.....if you walk up there and are thirsty don't be tempted to drink that water - it's been in the bottles for weeks!

Post by: Eileen on June 11, 2008, 07:25:51 PM
Sandy I forgot all about that table!  Liz and Dave loved it!  I think it deserves the Turner prize...so much more deserving than dead cows, soiled beds and demolished buildings!!!

Viv...thanks so much for that picture. I've just got home and logged in as I can't access photos at work. The good news is that apart from my coffee table....my patio railings are in!!!!!! They hadn't been fitted when I was there so it's good to see a little bit more has been done......it WILL be finished one day....and now I won't fall overboard to the lower level if I have one retsina too many!

Eileen is right - it could easily be next year's Turner. Could get all arty-farty here but don't know how to. I do accounting and IT...

I know Tracey Emin's tent burned down - I haven't been caught yet....

You have a wonderful house in Afionas Sandy. And viv has captured a wonderful take on it. Jen and me will visit you there one day.

As long as it isn't out of one of those bottles though Sandy. If I'm right they will be too posh and expensive to waste on the likes of Jen and me.

Arillas Afionas - what difference? Night Owls know better. You are quite right though - we've invited ourselves. Please bring your dad

Again I can say WOW!
And it was sooo nice to see Erja, Heidi and Riggers the first time!
And they are very lovely :) :) :)

I must say, I have not so many pictures, only few and I think they are not so good than the others I make.
But see self. the next days and weeks I will post here some!
And at the week end I will take them on my webside!

Soo, we have the letter "L"
For that I found that at the beach L -> Love

Welcome back Marika, and thanks for the photos. I knew you would soon be back on here and posting.I have never been able to capture moonlight like you have done on the last two pictures, and I love the reflection on the sea.

Also, I think I saw some of your photos on the new Horizon website which is really excellent.

From the view of your photo Viv, you must have had the studio above us.  We had the one below last year!  So that's what it looked like from up there!

Brings back lovely memories.  We loved it at the Bardis Sun.  I see you have already booked for 2009.

We took this photo from the Marina where we were having a long lazy sunday lunch.  They are the local lads, they arrived on their little scooters and had a laugh at the end of the pier,  What a lovely change to see that, from what you get over here.

The lady in the foreground had just got changed right there under a towel, flashing her bits! lol, the lads didnt bat an eyelid.

Great photographs, once again Marika and PaulC, especially the food and drink pics.

G seems to be missing though.

I am just making sure that my CF and SD cards are ready for next week and everything is backed up. We bought a Nintendo DS on Saturday and I have found out that you can use it for viewing photographs and Videos using something called a DSTT card. I just need to get the use of a PC while I am in Arillas.

hi graham

agree about the greek salad on the other post - but like you say I drink loads of Mythos and go on to have stamna and red wine afterwards....

The pictures here have to be hosted with a site like imageshack (www.imageshack.us) You have to register, activate the account via email, then you can upload the pics you want to post. It is quite easy to follow once you're registered. When you upload, select the image details (little icons shown by side of your pic - find the right one.)

You get to see the pic and a table of code for various things like webpage etc. Select DIRECT and highlight then Copy the code. Back in your post use the insert image button and paste the code between the img /img tags.

Hope this helps
Phil

Paul,

We sat in these seats!!

It's the Porto Timoni run by Kostas (Bardis?) and his wife, they are a lovely couple aren't they?

The views from the apartments upstairs must be just as fantastic...imagine waking up to that in the morning. :-)

We went there as well after walking up there... Mike had a big breakfast (he felt he deserved it after that walk)... they were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us... even laughing when I swapped seats about 3 times, they were too narrow (or was I too wide?)
I dont mind being the Butt of their humour!

Fabulous views... glad you put your photo on it brought back lovely memories thanks!

Hi Eileen, What a good job I just gave a cuddle and didn't use names when we were at Porto Timo in May. I thought Spiro had it, and Kostas had stayed at the other one.
All these years and they haven't told me I have had their names mixed up. LOL. Viv

Hi Sue,

The Porto Timoni restaurant is up in Afionas. 

In the 'square' you will see a little Olive wood gift shop.  On the wall at the side of the shop there is a sign with an arrow pointing to Dionysos Restaurant (http://www.dionysoscorfu.com/).  Follow the arrow, but on reaching Dionysos walk around the back towards the car park and you will see the sign for the Porto Timoni Restaurant.

It's well worth a visit.

Hi

Yes folks it means going twice to eat or drink at these delightful places, which are a MUST for anyone visiting this area !

To help with sorting the 2 out here are photos of the 2 owners:

 This is Spiros owner of the Dionysos Restaurant (the 1st one you reach) but you will often be served by his son Vasilis.
(http://www.agiosgeorgios.co.uk/images/spiros.jpg)    (http://www.agiosgeorgios.co.uk/images/dionysos235.jpg)

and this is his brother Kostas the owner of the newer Porto Timoni Cafe (the one at the back)

Post by: blondegirl on July 14, 2008, 11:29:16 PM
I thought it looked familiar Graham.  We stayed in the red roof studios (Villa Mary studios)  just to the right of your photo right on the beach.  We were told we could use the pool at Villa Mary but it was too much of a climb and there was no shortcut that we could see through the trees and bushes, that was at the back of the Pink Palace Hostel.
We loved it there, we could almost fall off our balcony and we were on the beach.  We felt totally cut off down there, it was so quiet and relaxing.  We walked one night to the big restaurant near the Villa Mary for a Greek night and drinks... it was much easier coming down, that hill is a killer!

Totally beautiful area though and was a good introduction to our first Corfu holiday which was end Aug/September 2005.

Hi Sharon,
Did you know that there used to be a footpath from the cliff footpath right down to the harbour, as a matter of fact its still there but so over grown that when Pete and I tried it to get back to Arillas a couple of years ago we were scacted to pieces at only a couple of yards in.
Dimitris had taken us out and dropped us of at the harbour to walk back (we thought we were being clever) anyway when we got back we told him about our adventure and he said that when he got time he would try and find out how to go about getting it cleared  as it used to be a really good walk. I wonder Dimitris did you ever manage to find out or with you being such a busy man did it just go out of your mind as it did ours untell now. lol Viv

Sadly, apart from Sundays when the local population have a day out at the seaside and they were heaving, Thalassa was often too quiet. But so was Tomas at Vavilas. It speaks volumes when the locals from all over Corfu choose them in front of all the others in Arillas and many told us so that night.

They have been slammed on the forum but it is not very fair. Without Spiros they would have been closed altogether this season. Many of us would have hated that. And we also ate some very good food and had very good service. But I do realise that this is because we are good friends of theirs

I understand that Yannis is an impossible act to follow, and truly wish he and Litsa were still there, but Spiros has made Thalassa possible this year, and with Steve and Adela has made quite a go of it. We are eternally grateful for that.

I thought I had seen it last year Lisa. It stopped at the Marina hotel and they helped a gentleman out of the car, who needed a wheel chair, and he went and sat at a table. In fact, the same man  seemed to be sitting there most days.

Terry, in early May and October you can get some fantastic storms, especially out at sea. I just love them and I cannot understand people running to get under shelter when they are as wet as they can get, you might as well just have a swim as you are. :-) Mick

"please ignore any twins"

Amanda,

I was trying to do a wide panorama by "stitching" photos together, and I was hoping that the picture would have been larger so more detail could be seen. If more detail could have been seen, you would have seen people twice. This is because when you move the camera for the sequence of photos people have moved, and you can see them in a different position on subsequent shots,  so they look like twins.

I wondered about that too, Terry!  Thanks for clearing that one up. 

I have saved your very wide pic to my favourites - it's very good, and as Eric Morcambe would have said - you can't see the joins!

Cheers,

Post by: Timbo on July 29, 2008, 11:41:53 PM
Thanks Terry!

There is a story with this next one. We were down at The Mirage and I was walking back from the loo, when I spotted this dude at the side of the pool, thinking it was dead I picked it up, only for it to start twitching in my hand. I quickly rushed back over to Cheryl & James with it still in my hand so I could single handedly get my camera out & turned on & set to macro etc before placing it on the grass. I was just about to take the shot where it jumped and landed on James's flip flop whilst still on his foot, Cheryl jumped & James kicked his flip flop off & it then landed near Cheryl! I wasn't flavour of the week for a few minutes but and the sunbathers behind did see the funny side. Got the shot though.........

G is for Grasshopper

That's fantastic Timbo. You have caught Arillas lowlife without Phil and Jen being involved. Takes quite a talent to do that.

They all think we are lovely so they tell us but they are making it up. I really identify with that startled frog...

The frog pic is really special. He sort of says to me "don't you think you should have had one less??" Could have been my dad...

Well done
Phil

If you like red wine, go for Thalassa's house red. Yannis gave us a 1.5 litre bottle to take home in 2002 (yes - we had spent most of the two weeks there and it was a goodbye gift. Little did he know we'd be back....)

It was amazingly mellow and good to drink. And it was just the same this July served by Spiros about 2 weeks ago. We were just too "tired and emotional" to finish it as holiday report says.

Amourada (at the corner - Vasillis Supermarket and the very pretty taverna opposite which is his) invited us to try their homemade wine last October. It was brilliant. And they are a wonderful family like all we have met in Arillas.

Thanks, Viv & BeckyB, for every photo shown on here there are about 20 others that don't make it, but that's the way it goes when trying to snap wildlife I find, all worth it though when you get just one decent picture. :-)

It is a really nice photo, and anybody who has been in the chatroom with John, Annie and the girls will know how nice they are. Annie should be very proud of the two girls because they are very funny but also very mature and polite. John is a real gentleman as well, and has a great sense of humour.

How about a K for Knitting, Nikki? :-)

There are some very interesting photographs in Brouklis and it would be nice to see them on the forum. Perhaps Dimitris could give us a bit of a history lesson about them.

I would love to hear Dimitris playing the Bouzouki Viv, and Bebis could accompany him using the small one.

Those kittens were so cute... they kept jumping up on your lap at the table... well it didnt help that we were giving them bits of sardine did it!

I had no inclination to take one home though... we already have an elderly mangy old cat and dont need another one for the next 18 yrs. (I do like cats really but the one we have now isnt very friendly).

We had sea bream several times last month, but not at Efi's sadly. Will put that right next time. But by the look of it I'll ask for a child's portion.....

Thomas at Vavilas always serves it and it is absolutely delicious there. But my best one was at Thalassa - perfectly cooked and full of flavours mmmmmmmmm......

You bet your life I ate it all..... Mike had most of the chips though..

Have you had skordalia... its mashed creamy potato loads and loads of garlic in it.. it is served cold but it has a really strong spicy bite because of the garlic... very nice with the bread or as a dip and Efi's mum makes it there and then.

Now we are on the subject of food...

The other thing that I found funny was that at the Amourada they did "Hot cheese dip".. so I thought I would give that a go... thought it would be heat hot... they meant spicy hot!  (well they knew what they meant).

Another time in Zante we had "fresh tuna"... I thought it would be a tuna steak... but it came out completely round from the tin (not broken up), complete with oil from the tin and one single olive on it..  Well I know it was fresh, but didnt expect it from the tin like that.  Now we know what to expect... anything!

Has anyone else had dishes from the menus turn up in unusual ways?

Of course they were jinsky!

Spilling all the beans, Jimmy and Spiros always wore protective clothing when Eggy was up at the oche. PaulC missed the full face masks and armour suits they wore on our afternoons watching the darts....

HelsBels and Keith took the risk and stayed near the dartboard. So did Kev and Bev. But Jen and Phil sat well back and drank the doubles (see Eggy's earlier posts on Arillas Today) whenever we got our heads out from under the table trying to avoid the arrows flying in all directions.

501?????? More like "five go mad in the rainbow." Apologies to Enid Blyton....

I don't know about the darts Phil, but the night I took the pic there was an attack of low flying beer mats coming from all directions. As you know the rainbow bar is sort of circular and Jimmy and Spiros were caught in the crossfire.

Viv, we had the packed lunch from Artemis, we took it out on the boat with us.  You choose what you want in it.  We had two baguettes with ham salad and ham and cheese.  Crisps, coleslaw and big bottle of water.  It is packed into a cooler bag and it cost 9 Euros.  We dropped the bag off later on.

We thought it was worth it, it kept the sandwiches nice and fresh for when we wanted them.

www.bagsoflove.co.uk/calendars/free-personalised-photo-calendar

you can download your photos of Arillas and put them on a calender... free!!

This is Tomas' mate Kostas, he does massages and offered us his services, he did the back of my neck and then billy.  Tell you what, it worked.  Billy has had a frozen shoulder for weeks and the next day it had gone!

Glad the old legs are o.k. Yes we are both well, missing Arillas, looking at next year. Di was in Clarks Village the other week end. Hope You and Jen are fine, did hear of a  liver in Corfu harbour with a bouy attached because it was a hazard to local shipping.

K for Knockdown prices ( what a cheat to use this for K just because I wanted to show the Supermarket at Sidari).

This is where the other pic was taken. I must be sad, but I find the shopping expeditions quite exciting. Its interesting to see the different ranges of goods that are stocked and this supermarket  has  a large range.

Oh wow! Been up the pub for 2 hours with Randy and Vix, and all of these stunning pictures appear on the forum. Have been on and off the forum all day and now have so much to see.

Clouds, Beautiful, Akti Pool and Gravia are wonderful examples of how Marika can capture what we all miss as we walk by. You all need to visit her website 
www.marika75.webs.com  (http://www.marika75.webs.com) to see the talent of our forum photographer. But we also have Mark whose work was showcased in Ammos all summer and who is also a major talent. Tried for ages to find a web address for him too, but failed. Maybe he can post it here.

I have so enjoyed your photos Terry. Perceptive of the sights in Arillas, like that window pic. Perhaps it is Jen and my Glastonbury lifestyle that we see all the sights but remember the people. We never seem to record the place, only the people. Will post lots on p for people...

Thanks for helping me out with the photographs Marika and Mick. I was trying to get to Z as Viv had suggested but I was struggling a bit.

Micks photos are really good but I have to say that Marika has gone to another level of photography with her latest photos. They are amazing and her eye for artistic interpretation of scenes and objects must be a natural gift to her.

You are a Star Marika x

Post by: Baldy Barry on October 30, 2008, 12:52:07 AM
Kes , don't know if you're camera settings set up is the same as mine but if you have a "Scene" setting put in on "starry sky" setting and then you should have a choice of shutter speeds....."15secs"  "30secs" and "90secs".
If you select one of these settings you can take night pictures (without flash) and with practice the results are pretty good ( ala Marika ).
I took some in the dark and they come out like it's in daylight.
Happy snapping !
Title: Re: A to Z - Photographs of Arillas and Corfu
Post by: Baldy Barry on October 30, 2008, 12:56:39 AM
Sorry Kes forgot to mention....if you're taking night shots on the slow shutter speeds use a tripod or put the camera on something steady.

Yes it's "starry night" setting Kes.
I can't claim to be a camera expert and I only found this setting by mistake as I blundered through all the settings to see what they did.
Must admit that after a couple of minutes reading the manual that I start to glaze over so I usually mess around with gadgets till I suss them out.
Thanks for the comments Lynn !

Isn't that what all those "settings" and "buttons" are for? Or have I got it wrong all these years? All that paperwork which goes straight into the recycling actually means something? No. Agree with Barry -

I was trying madly to remember the name of the village as I know we've passed it on several occasions - thanks Geoffrey :-)
PS: I take it there's no sort of charge/explosives left in it anymore?!

Is that so Geoffrey? If that's right, you can kind of see why can't you :-)
I'm not all sure how comfy I'd feel living opposite a muckle torpedo! :-)

Yes Becky, see what you mean, but I know the English lady-owner, and resident in the house, and that´s not the reason for the sale. Beautiful house, totally renovated, used to be the doctor´s house complete with apothecary in the yard. If I win the lottery that´s where I´ll be living in future. Very handy for daily walks to Arillas and beautiful views.

There is another torpedo, in armenades i think. It's lying at the side of the road. Doesn't look in such good condition as the on at magoulades. I've often wondered why it's there, it's not the type of thing you would just leave lying around is it?

Thanks for posting the Torpedo pic, Paul.

I have always wanted to take a photo of it myself, but I have never found a safe place to park. I always seem to get a very unsure driver in front of me and a very impatient driver behind me when I go through the village.

You have a fantastic natural talent Marika. I really hope that one day you can have a successful career in photography.

There are too many photographs published these days,  that have been "manipulated" by software. Your photos are just natural, as seen by the camera. Great artistry.

Mind you, one of those cocktails in every venue and even I would be hopping....

Nearly a year since the last post on this topic, so I thought I would revive it so that newcomers and guests can see what a great place Arillas is.
A quick reminder of the idea behind this topic :-
This is a Photograph A to Z of our ( the forum members) holiday memories. There are no rules to this except people post one photo at a time with the next letter in the alphabet. This could be a placename, taverna, natural feature, animal etc etc - use your imagination. I wonder how many times we can go through the alphabet?
And since the last post by patrick was "D" then :-
"E" is for "Evening on Arillas Beach"

Nice ones Phil & Geoff - hope a few more forum friends will start posting again with their photographs.  Meanwhile have had more trouble finding an O, but have settled on a view of the Splish Splash pool which Julia, my dear wife, took framed by the leaves of one of the olive trees which give welcome shade at the shallow end of the pool.

Back to 22nd September 2009 when we were at St Spiridon Bay on the North Coast of Corfu.  We heard a bell ringing and thought it must be the monastery nearby, but then a herd of goats came into view and the billy goat was wearing a large bell round his neck.  The photo is of NUMEROUS NANNY goats.

Well I'm confused now Bella.
If Jo is disqualified then shouldn't the next letter be "O" again??
Or are we moving on to "T" on the grounds that Jo's pictures were really great so we can overlook the lack of alliteration?
In which case it must be T for Terrific Tree - the "new" Olive Tree at the Horizon.

Now the letter X usually causes problems.  However Terry W solved it the first time round with his word xenodocheionology (study or love of hotels).  Now the last thing I think I am is xenophobic (having abnormal fear or hatred of the strange or foreign), so just to get this letter sorted here is a picture of me confirming my love of hotels and my love of foreign, especially Greek, places.

Dear Sonia
To put pictures on here you first need to have a collection of photos on one of the photo sharing sites.  Examples are Flickr and Photobucket, but there are many more.
Once your photo is on one of them they offer you the chance to copy a code which you paste in your posting on the forum.  Usually they offer several types of code for different things like blogsites, forums etc.
I used Flickr for my last photo and the code known as BBC (I think it means bulletin board code).
Its a bit finicky but does work - so suggest you have a try and see how you get on.  Am sure we'd all love to see some of your photos.
If you click on the legend under my photo it will take you to Flickr and you can see hundreds of my Arillas photos!
Best wishes
Pat

This is the north beach Arillas and I call it IN BLOOM referring to the lovely yellow broom on the Cliffside.
I got this pic from Photobucket following these instructions:

Go to Photobucket;

Select the photo you wish to put on the forum;
To the right of the photo you will see SHARE THIS PHOTO and underneath it 4 options:

For the Arillas Forum select IMG by clicking on IMG and the box beside it will turn yellow and say copied;

Go to the forum and start a post and then use CTRL + V to paste your code into the entry.

You then write your message before the code or after the code.

Hope this helps Sonia (and anyone else hoping to post some photos)
Pat

Thanks Pat. Been trying to do it from photo bucket app as my photos are on my tablet. It gives various options when you click share . These are options like Facebook and TripAdvisor. There is an option copy to clipboard. I have done that and then copied it but it comes up with (IMG)(IMG). Do you know what to do then?

Well done Sonia.  Some super photos.  I like the jetty one which is from an unusual angle. Don't know if you contributed to getting the bench put up, but am very chuffed that we forum members got it put up.  Didn't get to sit on it this year as it was always occupied - its good that its so very popular.  Hope they put it away for safe keeping over the winter before any more storms take their toll.

Pat - Mathraki is beautiful but not a lot there. It was very hot when we went, too hot for the beach really even with a sun umbrella. There is a taverna at the bottom and also one  further up the island. If you like walking and its  not too hot then there are a few things to see but not much. Glad we went to see it though. We didn't see any naturists on the beach thankfully and in fact there were only 3 other people on it which was a couple and their son that we came over on the boat with and got chatting to them and then bumped into them a few times back in Arillas as they were staying at Kaloudis. It is worth a trip but I would go on a day that is not very hot and be content to just have a stroll and chill out on the beach.

Kevin - The wedding looks to me like it is at the Marina Hotel.  We were there for a baptism party and a similar table arrangement was in place for 50 guests - great fun watching all the generations, some in their best outfits and some distinctly casually dressed.

I think we must be up to the letter 'B' now, so there can only be one candidate for that:

This is a Photograph A to Z of our ( the forum members) holiday memories. There are no rules to this except people post one photo at a time with the next letter in the alphabet. This could be a placename, taverna, natural feature, animal etc etc - use your imagination. I wonder how many times we can go through the alphabet?

Kevin - Quote above from Terry who kindly started the thread. Sorry, I have been posting more than one photo at a time. I got so carried away now I know how to do it. Lol.

So we are on one photo per person  at a time and in alphabetical order. I think we are now on C - on your marks, go!

Hi All

C FOR CACTUS

Prickly pear cactus has been a staple of the Mexican and Central American diet for thousands of years. In parts of the U.S. it has been gaining popularity as an exotic, gourmet and healthy addition to one's diet. The prickly pear plant has three different edible sections: the pad of the cactus (nopal), which can be treated like a vegetable, the petals of the flowers, which can be added to salads, and the pear (tuna), which can be treated like a fruit. They grow wild throughout the American southwest, down to South America and up to Canada. The ones you may find at a local store or farmers market will surely originate from a commercial nopal farm.

Hi All

P FOR PONTIAN LYRA In the Brouklis near the toilers on the wall

The LYRA of the Greeks of Pontos (Black Sea region of Asia Minor) is also known as the "Kementche". It is the main instrument used in Pontian music. It is a bottle-shaped, 3-stringed fiddle played in the upright position. It is sometimes played by resting it on the knee when sitting, and sometimes it is held out in front.

Its small light weight design allows it to be held up for a long time and in some cases the musician would follow the first dancer around (even dance as well). This is mainly due to the Not so loud sound of the lyra.

The lyra usually has three strings which have several tunings. Common tunings include: a-a-d, e-a-d, and many others in 4ths (the strings are of 2 octaves ... La, Mi, Ci). Since the instrument was often played alone, the tuning was often done according to the preference of the musician and his voice's range.

The musicians usually play two or all three strings at the same time, utilizing the open string(s) as a sort of drone to the melody. Sometimes they play the melody on two strings at once, giving a primitive harmony in fourths. They tend to play with many trills and embellishments, and with the unusual harmonies.

Hi All

V FOR VIDOS PRISON

(http://i.imgur.com/vJPNf5x.jpg)  (http://i.imgur.com/nqdpNsm.jpg)


The small, wooded isle of Vidos lies just half a mile from Corfu Town's Old Port, allowing you to glimpse the
historical buildings of the Old Town and St. Spiridon's church, framed by pine trees and clear blue sea. Known in ancient times as the Island of Hera, sister of Zeus and goddess of marriage, the seemingly tranquil paradise of Vidos has lived through much history. Under Venetian rule, which dominated Corfu Greece from the 15th century to the early 18th century, tunnels were built linking Vidos with the main island. Criminals were tried at the Old Fortress in Corfu Town, and then transported through the tunnels to Vidos island , which was once Corfu's 'Alcatraz'

The isolated remains of the prison and its solitary confinement area can still be found today. Vidosisland had
always been a strategic point in Corfu's defences, and following the departure of the Venetians, Vidos island was fortified under French governance. Vidos also gained its name from the French. The last foreign power in Corfu was the British, who turned Vidos into an almost impenetrable fortress, before destroying their own and all the previous fortifications on their departure. They also demolished the church of Agios Stefanos, which had been built by the
Saints Jason and Sosipatros. A final chapter in Vidos' island history came during the First World War.

By following forest paths, you can discover the haunting Serbian Mausoleum, monument to some 1,232 Serbian soldiers who lost their lives to plague and starvation while defending Corfu's freedom. Inside, all of the soldiers are commemorated and offerings of flowers and candles are strewn amongst the photographs and memories.
A memorial book is also provided for those who wish to add their gratitude and thoughts. Today, the island of Vidos is a more peaceful escape, and a favourite amongst Greeks and tourists alike. The pine-strewn paths lead you through the island's history, but also to its present beauty. Stunning, secluded beaches and quiet forest spots can be found, as well as a sole taverna at which you can enjoy the traditional food and spectacular view across the sea to Corfu Town.

Another point of interest is a beautiful old house, which was used in the filming of 'Fedora', a 1970s film set in
Corfu and starring Michael York. Vidos also accommodates the Kerkyra Bird and Wildlife sanctuary, and you will come across the wild rabbits, pheasants and goats who call Vidos home as you explore Corfu island.
Many resorts on the East coast of Corfu offer organised excursions to Vidos island , but it is also possible to visit the
island using a regular boat service from Corfu Town's (Kerkyra)Old Port

I would love to go down in to the tunnels

No, it was in the Little Prince in San Stefanos. They have Geek dancing there ever night and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced.

Time to be imaginative for 'Z', so I've gone ZOOLOGICAL with this lizard - the Dalmatian Algyroides, which I photographed on our balcony at the Horizon Hotel while staying there in June 2007

  For the letter 'C' I think we could do CLIFF - this photo was taken on 11th September 2013 shortly after a cliff rockfall buried a dozen sunbeds towards the North Beach.  Fortunately the occupants were all in the sea at the time.

Thanks Truth and Jo for your comments.  I love to know the story behind things I see (and photograph) - perhaps it comes of being nosy - but then my whole career was spent being nosy so I can't help it.  Am already president of the local Probus club so can't take on any more heavy responsibilities - perhaps we might look to Jo to be President of the A to Z club!!

Back to May 2003 to the days when we hadn't found Arillas and stayed at Sidari.  On hired bikes we found Kounavades and these wonderful trailing PELARGONIUMS (generally called geraniums).

On 7th September 2013, Billy Kaloudis took us in his speedboat to Ericousa (which means heather island), and we enjoyed a tour of the island, a visit to the refurbished WINDMILL and a meal at one of the tavernas, followed by an afternoon on Porto, one of the lovely beaches.

Ereikoussa - by the old windmill (https://flic.kr/p/g3gbe8) by pj&#x27;s memories (https://www.flickr.com/photos/pjsmemories/), on Flickr

From Wikipedia: Ereikoussa (Greek: Ερείκουσα , Italian: Merlera) is an island and a former community of the Ionian Islands, Greece. It is one of the Diapontia Islands, an island complex to the northwest of Corfu. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality of Corfu, of which it is a municipal unit. It is located off the northwestern coast of the island of Corfu, and is almost equidistant from Corfu to the southeast, Mathraki to the southwest, and Othonoi to the west. There is only one town on the island, also named Ereikoússa. Its population was 496 at the 2011 census and its land area is 3.7 square kilometres (1 sq mi). The island is rich in green forests, filled with cypress, and olive trees. It has two beaches, Porto (Πόρτο) and Braghini (Μπραγκίνι); the names are of Italian origin, and date back to the period of Venetian rule. Braghini is rarely visited because it is further away from the main part of the island.

HI PAT

I am a horticulturist
 i met sophie and edward of wessex

i won first prize best small garden sq in london

(http://i.imgur.com/LjACGvl.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/11YAnky.png)
(http://i.imgur.com/u9ubVG6.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/aQErjzY.jpg)



Datura is a genus of nine species of poisonous vespertine flowering plants belonging to the family Solanaceae. They are commonly known as daturas, but also known as devil's trumpets,[1] not to be confused with angel's trumpets, its closely related genus Brugmansia. They are also sometimes called moonflowers, Jimsonweed, devil's weed, hell's bells, thorn-apple, and many more. Its precise and natural distribution is uncertain, owing to its extensive cultivation and naturalization throughout the temperate and tropical regions of the globe. Its distribution within the Americas and North Africa, however, is most likely restricted to the United States and Mexico and Southern Canada in North America, and Tunisia in Africa, where the highest species diversity occurs.

All species of Datura are poisonous, especially their seeds and flowers.

K FOR KOKKORA At the Dionysos

“KARAMANOS - AGELOPOULOS OGH” is one of the oldest drink companies in Thessaloniki, Greece, known also with its trade mark “KOKKORA” (it means "rooster" in Greek).

Ouzo is our main product, which is produced by alcohol and anis mixture distillation, in traditional distillation device.

The recipe of our mild-taste ouzo is given from an older generation to the next one. Therefore, ouzo “KOKKORA” still remains an authentic traditional Greek product.

We also produce dry alcoholic brandy-like beverage, which is awarded in past drink competitions and liquers in seven different tastes.

So I reckon its time for 'X' once more.  It always causes problems, but right at the start of this Subject, way back, to be precise: Reply #87 on: August 13, 2007, 08:07:13 PM » by Terry W, he solved it by using the wonderful word 'xenodocheionology' (love of hotels). 
If its good enough for Terry its good enough for me, so here is my contribution:  A photo taken by Julia of me reading my book on our balcony at the Horizon in June 2007 - the same year this thread began!

Perhaps you remember Terry Warner found a word for hotel lovers some time ago - xenodocheionology - I suspect he got it from the same source.

HI ALL

Y FOR YAMAS

Definition: You'll be hearing "Yasou" as a greeting all over Greece - but what exactly is being said? The word is one of those wonderful multi-purpose terms, which is used along with its more formal cousin, Yassas. Both words mean, roughly, "Your health!" and can be used as either a greeting or, less frequently, a toast when drinking - usually raki or ouzo in a traditional setting, but it can be used just as correctly when imbibing a pina colada or any drink.
Yasou is the more familiar version, used among equals or to supposed "inferiors" such as children. "Yassas" is more respectful, a bit old-fashioned, and is ideally used when addressing an older person. Tourists will often hear "Yassas" from Greeks in the tourist industry, since you are the presumably honorable and honored guest.
"Yamas" is a similar term but is only used in the context of drinking - you would not use it as a greeting on its own.

Super photo of our Arillas correspondent on his bike.  So on to F.  Of course it must be FLIPPERS, so here's me with my flippers at St Spiridon Bay, photographed long ago (May 2003) by Julia, having just emerged from the sea after a long swim out to the little island.

HI ALL

H FOR HOLY TRINITY METEORA
The Holy Trinity Monastery (Greek: Μονή Αγίας Τριάδος) (also known as Agia Triada, Ayías Triádhos, Ayia Triada; all meaning "Holy Trinity") is an Eastern Orthodox monastery in central Greece, situated in the Peneas Valley northeast of the town of Kalambaka. It is situated at the top of a rocky precipice over 400 metres high and forms part of 24 monasteries which were originally built at Meteora, one of the oldest still existing of the Meteora monasteries (Meteora means "suspended in the air" in Greek). Six of the 24 monasteries are still active and open to visitors. The church was constructed between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and is included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites titled Meteora. The monastery was featured in the 1981 James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only.

MR NEGG

It could be a the Oleander hawk-moth, Daphnis nerii

Metamorphosis
December 19, 2009 by Krishna Mohan
When I returned to my in-laws place at Bondel, Mangalore, I was eagerly greeted by my daughter who showed this plump green caterpillar which she sighted on the flowering bush in their garden. She had seen the similar caterpillar earlier at her school backyard and wanted to know the identification. There were 3 caterpillars on that Crape jasmine (Tabernaemontana divaricata) plant. They were caterpillars of the of the oleander hawk-moth.

(http://i.imgur.com/usauHXJ.jpg)

The Oleander hawk-moth, Daphnis nerii (Linnaeus, 1758), one of the most widely distributed species of sphingid in the world, is known to occur in Africa, southern Europe, Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, Yunnan (south China), Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, and North Borneo, and has been introduced to southern Japan, Hawaii, and Guam. Its vernacular name refers to the oleander, Nerium oleander (family Apocynaceae), on which its larvae feed, among other members in its family of poisonous, laticiferous plants. Incidentally, the Oleander was also first described by renowned Swedish naturalist, Carolus Linnaeus in 1753. I had the great opportunity of photographing this moth earlier which I documented on this website here and here.
Entire body of this caterpillar was a pleasant apple green, with a straight, dorso-lateral row of small, aqua-marine dots from its second to seventh abdominal segments, with a chalky white, longitudinal band immediately above this. There was also a scattering of distinct, white dots from its first to fifth abdominal segments. Its spiracles were jet black, outlined with white. On its third thoracic segment, there was a prominent pair of ocelli (A marking that resembles an eye), consisting of an outer, Dark Blue ring with a whitish blue center, clearly advertised when its defensive posture (head tucked under) was adopted.
Its tail horn was relatively short and had a rounded tip. There was a sparse distribution of low, short spines over the entire tail horn, which was largely citrus-yellow. It was voraciously feeding on Crape jasmine leaves and excreting large greenish black pellets. Since it was dark we decided to visit and photograph it next day.

Next day morning when we went to visit the caterpillar again we just couldn’t find any apple green caterpillar. Previously apple-green body had transformed to a dirty orange on the flanks and an olive-brown on the dorsum. A symmetrical pair of round, black patches had also appeared on the top of its first thoracic segment, just posterior to its head.

The thick rings of its false eye spots had darkened to a black outline. The yellow of its posterior tail horn had now darker orange. This was pre-pupal metamorphosis of the caterpillar. What we saw yesterday was the final instar version of this caterpillar.As we were observing the caterpillar was descending to the ground. Then it dropped to the ground and started burrowing deep into the soil to pupate. I did not disturb its path and let it continue. In another 10days I was sure it is going to emerge out of its pupa and brilliantly colored oleander hawk moth which I had previously documented on my website.

(http://i.imgur.com/97r8luC.jpg)

Descriptions and illustrations of the larva and pupa of the oleander hawk-moth were provided previously by Bell & Scott (1937), with more recent works by Pittaway (1993) and Pittaway & Kitching (2009). Throughout its broad geographical distribution, the combined list of documented larval host plants for the oleander hawk-moth comprises no fewer than 32 genera in 12 families, clear indications of a polyphagous diet. However, there appears to be a strong preference for plants in the family Apocynaceae, with at least 17 genera (more than half) recorded. A most probable advantage of consuming potentially poisonous plants in this family would be the chemical defense that the larvae would be able to derive from them. For example, the leaves and other parts of the oleander contain a potent concoction of cardiac glycosides (cardenolides), such as oleandrin, which can cause nausea, vomiting, weakness, irregular pulse and decreased heart rate. The oleander has even been responsible for occasional fatalities in humans. Thus the plants in the Apocynaceae would confer the larvae considerable deterrence against a variety of predators.

How very interesting - the life cycle of the oleander hawk moth.  Thanks for sharing that - I learn something new every day.
Now on to the letter R.  I reckon the R is for RAILINGS - photograph by Julia on 13th September 2016 at the Kaloudis Village.
