We spent two days in Athens and then moved on to the islands of Mykonos, Paros and finally Santorini.
Beaches. White buildings. Blue doors. Shops. Narrow streets. Restaurants. Stray cats.
I'm still trying to digest the experience.
For days I've been deleting, editing and organizing photos. How many pictures do you take on holiday ? After deleting hundreds of photos I'm still left with over 500 !!! I then went through those and chose the favourite 50 or so.
There were just so many beautiful and interesting things to see and capture on film. "Capture" is a good word. I think photography is my attempt to freeze moments in time as if viewing the photo later would bring back the warm breeze, salty fresh air and chirping birdsong. Sadly, the pictures are a pale imitation of the moments they represent.
But they're the best I can do.
So all I'm left with are pictures ...
Pictures and wonderful memories.
