Photographs of nature, places and objects that have caught my eye.

Φωτογραφίες απο την φύση, απο τόπους και αντικείμενα που μου χτύπησαν στο μάτι.

Nea Moni (New Monastery) of Chios (ΙII). Νέα Μονή Χίου(IIΙ)

The inside. What has been saved is amazing mosaic art. Dont forget to enlarge the photographs for best viewing.
Το εσωτερικό. Ότι έχει απομείνει είναι εκπληκτική τέχνη ψηφιδωτών. Μην ξεχνάτε να κάνετε κλίκ στις φωτογραφίες για μεγένθυνση.
