Like any busy tourist town or village, Oia has it’s busy lanes, paths and steps…. and then there are those used mostly by locals. The following is a small glimpse of Oia through my eyes… taking paths less travelled and sights less seen.
It’s Oia backstreets in the autumn light. Hope you enjoy ;-)
If only the steps could talk…
You probably drive up to your front door… here it’s a little different
Here our streets are… well, let’s just say “a bit more poetic”
the path is often someone’s front porch and someone else’s roof…
but that makes for interesting angles…
the shooter shoots the shooter…
an hour before sunset…the shadows are long
(right below the cruise ships is the Summer Lovers house, all boarded up for winter)
the paths are almost empty… the village is mine again
the light is much softer… but the views remain the same – sublime !
I am sorry I haven’t posted much lately. There’s a lot going on (the business end of the year is starting) and there are many big plans for Aegean Designs… more on that soon. I am so looking forward to the blissful quiet of winter, the time to sit and think, read and write. The time to walk through the paths you just saw and many others which I will photograph for you. I hope you can keep me company through winter from your own corner of the world !
PS: Don’t forget to enter your “Santorini dreaming” essay for a chance to be here next year, to live your dream and walk these same paths in magical Oia.
