Blue is the most popular colour, it is the most calming.. tranquil colour and largely the colour of this small planet we all call home. Blue is also the colour we all associate with the sea/ocean, although these days its getting harder to find water that’s clear… especially near large cities. Fortunately the Greek islands and Santorini in particular, does not have that problem. The small church belonging to a friend that’s near the house was freshly painted and on a calm afternoon it was a good opportunity to snap some pics of “blue on blue”.
the light was right and the blue… well the blue is always right in the caldera
it’s just a matter of waiting to take the shots you want…
the big blue beyond being the perfect backdrop for the tiny church
blue on blue…
Rex took up his favourite position for sunset boat-watching…
followed by his impersonation of the Sphinx !
then it was time for dinner at Ammoudi… and this was the view below the table
(in case you’re wondering that’s at least 5-6 metres deep)
I know it looks like an aquarium dear friends… but trust me, this is the turquoise blue Aegean sea
and although it looks shallow… it is not. It is just absolutely crystal clear !
Now… go with me on this. It’s the end of a busy week. Lots of running around, met lots of wonderful people at the studio… and now it’s Friday evening and I am sitting down at Ammoudi with some nice seafood and a glass of wine. Next to the table I can look down and see the crystal clear waters filled with fish and volcanic rocks.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am very aware that this is not the centre of the known universe or the most “hip” spot to be seen… but I can honestly tell you that at that very moment there was nowhere else I wanted to be.
Funny that ;-)
