TTLT – Day 11 – A pop of color

“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 😉

  1. Like your other comments, I love the blue doors against the stark grays and whites. It is odd that they only use that color of blue. Against those walls, I can imagine doors of orangy-reds and lime greens too. I’m sure they have a reason for this…it would be interesting to find out.

    Thanks for sharing your photo of Greece!

    1. Lol… I actually Googled to see what I could find on the subject and this is what I came up with:

      Either way to me, that particular blue with white walls is synonymous with Santorini. Just yesterday we were driving around in the UAE and saw a white building with blue domes. Hubby and I looked at each other and simultaneously yelled out “Santorini!” 😀
