Inspired by Greece

Digital photography frees me ( cost wise) to take as many pictures as I like. I can let the weird side of me out ( Mr E’s charming description of me and my photos). So here is another selection of the Greece that inspires me.

Parga, Greece September 2015 129

This was taken in Ali Pasha’s castle, I love the way that the opening leads to an opening which leads to…

Inside the tunnel on the motorway, note no cars, but I love the way that light vanishes into the distance.

Finally a walk we did by the river I where the path just makes you want to go forward.

Hope you enjoyed this selection. Love to know what inspires you? Doors seem to have been a common love from the post of alternative Greece I wrote.

Santorini is famous for Black Beaches and Blue and White Buildings and churches. Didn’t think there would be much pink about until I started looking properly! Amazing what you find..
