“The colors in our photographs are evocative and rouse emotions within us. Color can elevate a mundane image into something intriguing and meaningful, and can tell a particular story within the frame.”
My picture for Day 11 was taken in Santorini, one of the most visited islands in Greece. The place is, without a doubt, one of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen albeit a tad bit too crowded and touristy for my taste (Hypocritical much?!). But the jaw dropping views more than made up for the press of tourists.
Blue doors like these are a dime a dozen in Santorini. While most of the buildings have these cobalt blue doors and domes against stark white walls, I loved the contrast that this particular door made against the chalky, porous wall surrounding it.
There were only a handful of buildings in Santorini painted in any color but white and blue. I wonder whether paint sellers there only stock two major colors of paint for the whole year. Must make for easy inventory 😉
