Ah, Greece. How I loved it. How hard it was to choose what to share with you as my first image back. I debated, should it be the wonderful curves of the unique architecture, the houses spilling down the hillside in Santorini? Maybe a blue-domed church with the sea behind? How about the temples of the Acropolis, to show what survives of Ancient Greece? Or the graffiti of Athens, painting the city multiple colors?
This simple image, from the port of Fira on the island of Santorini, stuck in my mind. It's not characteristic of the architecture of the island, except for the color blue. Oh, the blue!! It is characteristic of my photography, however, and one of the little scenes that brought me the most joy during our week in Greece. Even though much of Santorini island is so beautifully painted and cared for, I managed to find some great texture down by the docks. A little slice of my photographic heaven, to share with you on my first day back from vacation.
Today I'll be hopping around, seeing all of the entries for Exploring with a Camera: Rimmed with Light submitted so far. I can't wait to see what you've linked in! If you haven't linked an image in yet, there is still time. The link up is open through Tuesday.
I'm also excited to see the all of the people signed up for the Liberate your Art Postcard Swap in the last week. I've updated the participant list with all of those who wanted to share their links so far. We've got a great group of artists from around the world already. Thanks to all of you who have been helping me to reach my goal of 200 participants, through blogging and putting the button on your sidebar. The swap is currently at 75 participants thanks to you! Yay!
