Central Park, the old time classic park. It is always crowded, people having fun, cycling and playing together with their mates. The park gives life to the center of Manhattan and there are colours and smiley faces around. I had that weird feeling when I was there cus in New York you are surrounded by skyscrapers which are spectacular of course, but at any moment you could spend time in this green park and be out of the business of the town just like that. The guy in the photo was obviously spending a good time with himself, you can see the joy in his face and the effort he was giving to create a big bubble.. Just being with himself was what he needed that day. His personal joy was instantly our joy too... It looked like he was sending bubbles to the people and giving them a colourful meaning. It was so nice, just relaxing on the grass and looking at the floating bubbles going into the air. ---------------------------------------------------------- #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #nikonloveny ---------------------------------------------------------- #nikon #travel #traveller #travelling #instalifo #athensvoice #nikonphotography #aerial #500px #hubs_united #earthonlocation #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #awesome_phototrip #centralpark #manhattan #discover_vacations #observingtheworld #newyork #whpnaturalbeauty #nikonyes #nikonusa #nikonnofilter #nikonloveny #nycphotography #nikonYes

This most famous of #Scottish castles has a complex building history. The oldest part, St Margaret's Chapel, dates from the 12th century; the Great Hall was erected by James IV around 1510; the Half Moon Battery by the Regent Morton in the late 16th century; and the Scottish National War Memorial after the First World War. The castle houses the Honours (Crown Jewels) of Scotland, the Stone of Destiny, the famous 15th century gun Mons Meg, the One O' Clock Gun and the National War Museum of #Scotland . ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #ukofftrack #scotlandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- #nikon #travel #traveller #travelling #instalifo #athensvoice #nikonphotography #aerial #500px #hubs_united #earthonlocation #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #awesome_phototrip #nikontop #loves_edinburgh #discover_vacations #observingtheworld #thisisedinburgh #whpnaturalbeauty @bbc_travel @athensvoice

Take a moment and forget about everything. Put your thoughts in a small bubble and let the bubble flow away in the air. Allow your mind to relax, and let your eyes to observe, observe the colours and listens to the sounds. good morning to everybody. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / ---------------------------------------------------------- #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack #baankwanchang #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #athens #goprothchallenge #bookingloves #amzthldv #thailand @athensvoice @bbc_travel @bbcearth @lifomag

photo by: @yannis.karalis_photography story: @ealesmichael ・・・ Temple beggar ------------------ In most working temples in Cambodia you will find beggars at the temple gate or on the flight of steps leading up to the pagoda. People have lots of opinions about begging, but the connection with temples is centuries old. Even in European monasteries there is a tradition of giving alms. It is a symbiotic relationship. For the giver you make merit by donating, and ensure you do not reincarnate as a poor person. The act of giving, as well as compassion, is important in Buddhism. The receiver is often on the edges of the community, disabled, older widows with no financial support, mothers with children but no money. There is no state support available. Being a temple beggar is an honourable thing. Some say 'stop giving and they will stop begging', but for these people asking for alms and receiving help from the monastery is the best they can do in a poor country. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story:@ealesmichael ---------------------------------------------------------- #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack #cambodia #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #bookingloves #backpackers

Phnom Kulen -------------------------------- Phnom Kulen was once the site of Mahendraparvata, ancient capital of the first Khmer empire. Now it is mainly jungle through which flows the sacred river of a thousand lingas, and many temples and monuments are still hidden. At its high point there is a working temple with a reclining Buddha carved into the peak with a monastery built around it. As you walk around the back of the carving a sign says "Please do not write on the Buddha", of course this is an open invitation for it to be covered in messages, some spiritual and some profane. The temple attracts pilgrims and beggars alike. You can change dollars into small denomination Riel to distribute to the forty or so beggars who line the long flight of steps...it is good kharma for pilgrims to do this. The pilgrim will not be disappointed, there is a 'footprint' of the Budha, an outsize outline of a foot carved into concrete; there is water from the sacred river which (for a donation) a monk will pour over a linga, with which you annoint your head; another monk will offer a personal blessing. A senior monk gives teaching with microphone and loudspeaker. Children run around and the more enterprising will "look after" your shoes (for a tip). We imagine working temples were always like this, vibrant lively places with quiet meditative places within, not the peace and quiet of a modern spa which aims to create a spiritual experience. The pilgrim in the photograph looked very pleased with all she was experiencing. read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com Photography📷: @yannis.karalis_photography Story📝:@ealesmichael ---------------------------------------------------------- #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack #cambodia #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #bookingloves #backpackers

photo by: @yannis.karalis_photography ・・・ 26/01/17 - Serenity -------------------------------- Over time Siem Reap has become more and more commercialised, people literally chasing a dollar. Tuk tuk drivers persistently ask you if you need one, even if they have just seen you get out of another one. We were in a night market when a power cut plunged us into total darkness, out of which came a voice "You want to buy something". This goes right to the very top. Much of the key tourist infrastructure is outsourced or leased to private companies (like Angkor Wat ticket sales, or the pier for Ton le Sap), so ordinary people often feel that they are not getting their fair share of tourist income, so they need their own ways to get as much as possible. From next month Angkor entry tickets will rise from $20 to $37 for a one-day pass, and from $40 to $62 for a three-day pass. Other prices are sure to follow. Pub Street used to still have a certain elegance, bars with great decor and traditional restaurants. Now it is dominated by noise from dance bars, street sellers and even more guys offering tuk tuks or numerous other services. In amongst all of this the lady in the picture emanated serenity, an inner core of peace. She asked for nothing, but gave much. She represents another way of being which we have been lucky to find, something of the best nature of Cambodia. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack #cambodia ---------------------------------------------------------- Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story:@ealesmichael #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #bookingloves #backpackers
