Famagusta street – Watercolour by Savva

Just around the corner from Famagusta Cathedral there’s this wonderful little street. There’s a coffee shop at the end of the street and the man on the bike is the coffee shop owner delivering coffee using the traditional tray and his old Hercules bike. It’s a scene that you could see everywhere in the past in Cyprus, so to witness it again in this day and age… it’s magic. Hope you like the painting :)

Famagusta Cathedral Watercolour by Savva

Very early this morning I set off to Famagusta to visit this wonderful medieval Cathedral. It was built in 1328 and it still retains all its grandeur and beauty to this day. It originally was Saint Nicholas’s Cathedral but later converted into a mosque during the Ottoman empire. I was very lucky as the whole building and area was covered by a wonderful mist and as the mist lifted it just revealed it piece by piece. I don’t get to witness this kind of beauty often but when I do, its just the most amazing thing ever. I hope everyone has a wonderful day today and hope to hear from you :)
