When I last visited my hometown, it was only a matter of time until I hit the fields near my village. I was thinking about taking some macro shots of nature such as mushroom and fungus related and I just waited for the right time to come, preferable after a small rain. The weather was cloudy and the light not adequate for a crisp handheld shot at desirable values. I had to use an upper ISO value of 800 and I witnessed the shutter speed dropping at just above 1/25 with many shots requiring 1/40.

By the time I arrived at Kalamata, Marianna and I had already planned a photo shooting with the general idea of a "furry" theme. The weather was better than fine and after deciding the type of clothing and type of accessories to bring with us, all we had to do was find a place to start shooting. We decided that it was a good idea to head for Kapetanakis tower near Sotirianika village, not far from Kalamata. So we headed, fully equipped and with lots of ideas.

Sunny Christmas in Kalamata, the weather was good and the nights a bit chilly. The town was decorated with few, but beautiful lights. The truth is that the decorations were not as much because of the low cost budget at the time of economic crisis in Greece, but people were not letting this to restrict them to their houses.
