Now I am a glass half full kind of person
Empty is such a very sad word to me. Consider Empty Headed and Empty Handed , so negative, just nothingness, empty.
Greece has been in the news a lot this summer, the refugees/immigrants coming to Europe for a better life via Greece. But they don’t want to stay in Greece, despite the lovely people and the climate, because, I assume ,Greece is in a dire financial position. Parga where we were based was busy , lots of tourists with money to spend. But come away from the coast and it’s a different story. I was so struggling with the word Empty and how to meet the photo challenge, but then there it was in Greece.
Lunch Time away from the tourist trail.
Empty cafe, and down the side streets
Empty derelict shops, and on the way out of the university city of Ioannina, this is the motorway, built with EU funding.
Empty, at 4.45pm on a week day. So sad.
Then the glass half full side of me pops up, Empty and nothing means Opportunity, those empty buildings could come to life again. So I shall do my bit and visit Greece whenever I can , and share my pictures of Greece to encourage everyone to visit.
So expect a few more pictures of Greece in some of the coming photo challenges! Have you booked your next holiday yet? Greece anyone?
Linking with Blue Daisy for this challenge here
But what I would love you to see and read and is this at Wild Daffodil. I think it’s brilliant. To me it depicts Empty nest syndrome!!
PS Since I started drafting this I realized I had two exceptions to my Empty feeling. I love being in the countryside when it is empty of any man made noise, and I love it when you have the pool all to one self on holiday!!
