A simple but, I think, very effective photo of an Orthodox Church "spire" in Oia, Santorini.
There are many decorative pots and pot plants on Santorini. This one is in Thira, the Island's caapital
Another photo from Oia, on the top of Santorini, taken at sunset.
The sunset at Oia, on the top of Santorini, casts a warm glow over the traditionally white buildings. Photos like these are cliches, but so what - it's so popular because it's so good, and lives up to the hype.
The view over the caldera in santorini is spectacular at any time. This photo was taken at dusk, and has a very calm and peaceful effect.
Oia, a village at the top of Santorini, is rightly famous for its sunsets, which cast a warm glow on the traditional white buildings. This church is on the cliff facing the caldera.
I liked this juctaposition of a newer house with a traditional thatched rondovel in Mochudi, a large village in South Eastern Botswana. I was somewhat constrained when taking the photo - slow film, limited light and therefore also depth of field, and a fixed focal length (135mm) lens, but I am pleased with the result.
When traditional stone buildings lose their roof they are usually are completely ruined in a few years. This walls of this Greek Orthodox church have survived many years because it's on top of a dry mountain, so has not been overgrown by vegetation.
