Some girls are bigger than others...

When art is fine... Fine Art is creative art, especially visual, whose products are to be appreciated primarily or solely for their imaginative, aesthetic, or intellectual content. It gets even finer when it captures the essence of the subject's character, in a vision created by the photographer. It is then that maximum impact is delivered and emotion is depicted in a vivid and distinctive style. Place: Cusco, Peru', Latin America. Photography by Achilleas Manolis. #fine #por

The story of your life is not your life, it is your story...

As the novelist John Barth once wrote, “The story of your life is not your life. It is your story.” But how do you make sense of that? Of course, the mere facts of your life matter; they always did, and they will certainly do. However, despite the undeniable weight of objectivity, life is not a controlled experiment. Thus, it is your personal narrative that matters most, it is the way you look that defines what you see. So, what’s your sense of the meaning of your life? This

The Cowboys of Argentina

Place: Buenos Aires, Argentina Photos by me. They are called Gauchos. They are skilled horsemen, reputed to be brave, if unruly; a national symbol in Argentina. The word "gaucho" is applied metaphorically to mean "Noble, brave and generous", but also "One who is skillful in subtle tricks, crafty". I met them outside Buenos Aires, Argentina, a few years ago. One offered me a ride. The other offered me a... ring. :-)​ #gaucho #cowboy #noble #brave #crafty #buenosaires #argent

Do you believe you can cross yourself?

Most lines cross others. They meet, interact, and again depart; they move forward. That's the normal course of a railing line, right? Now...REFRAME this. Always try to reframe. Our assumptions are most of the time self-imposed. Having done so, what do you see? You can see lines that are more flexible-kind of rebels against and above their own standards.

The Big Blue-Inner View

Tranquility or 'soft fascination': that is engaging with the natural environment with no cognitive effort other than stepping out of your overcrowded mental space. It is only then that true reflection comes. Place: Amorgos, Greece Photo by me. #tranquility #fascination #serendipity #blue #view #amorgos #greece #places #theothershot

Welcome to The Other Shot!

Hi! I am Mirella. I am a pharmacist and current MBA candidate, based in Athens, Greece. I love writing and taking photographs, but, perhaps even more, I enjoy the opposites; that is reading and looking at photographs, trying to make sense of what others were thinking or feeling throughout their personal creation process. Many times I apply this to myself too, trying to figure out my own subconscious drivers. I am also enthusiastic about contemporary dance! So, this is a blog
