Parthenon, Athens

From Greece with love. With this last picture I would like to say farewell to all of you who have been growing and showing along with me.

Not a goodbye because I'm sure we gonna meet sometime in the future. In 6, in ten years.. I don't know, but we will.

It has been a great honor to find people who share the same love for beards and photography.

Many thanks to our curator @mackle and many more thanks to all the guys who have supported my work.

As I said before, Whiskerinos who visit the island of Crete, are welcome to pass by and stay.

Big thanks to my friends who have been watching my pictures through Facebook.

Peace to you all,
Mike de Monk

You were one of my early fav's and have stayed one throughout. I am still shocked you just recently got a DSLR. I really honestly thought you were a professional photographer. You are incredibly talented. Thanks for what you have brought here. I looked forward to your shots everyday. Amazing, just amazing.
