I’ve been MIA from the world of doors for a few weeks now and today I’m dipping back into the archive to revisit some 2-year old photos from Greece.
Periodically I go on a purging exercise in my photo library, removing ones I consider duplicates and images that don’t live up to my increasingly critical eye. I recently deleted 100 photos from this trip to Greece, but the following handful made the cut.
This ancient church in the heart of Athens fascinated me and I had dozens of photos of it to prove my point. That number is now considerably less.
A 2-day side trip to the island of Hydra provided endless opportunities for interesting photos.
There are no vehicles on Hydra and goods are still being moved by donkey. I had lots and lots of donkey shots.
I also had an endless number of boat photos, although admittedly most of them were actually in the water.
I wish I had a Euro for every step we climbed on this trip. I stopped frequently to take photos – of just about anything – as an excuse to rest and get my hammering heart rate out of the heart attack zone.
I looked at many of those photos after the fact and wondered what on earth I was trying to capture.
Greece was a destination that exceeded my expectations – by a long shot. As with all memorable occasions, I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since we were there. Thankfully I have the photos to remember it – this time without the cardio workout.
