    The Caldera of Santorini

    This past April I took my first ever trip to Greece, a week-long photography tour with Light & Land ( This was not only my first trip to Greece, but anywhere close to Greece; the closest I had ever been to Greece was London. Anyone…

  • The Shapes of Santorini

    The Shapes of Santorini

    Countless domed and arched roofs grace Santorini. As there is little wood on the island, traditionally many of the buildings are constructed out of the abundant volcanic stone, which makes arched and domed roofs very practical. While the examples above are quite spare from the…

    Cable Cutter

    I loved these badly weathered window shutters and the crumbling concrete around them, but short of trespassing or serious vandalism there was absolutely no way to get this white cable out of the picture. I took the photo anyway in the hopes that I could…

    The Textures of Santorini

    As a photographer, much of the fun of visiting Santorini is wandering the narrow alleys and stumbling upon wonderful little architectural features like this door. I suppose that it would look nice freshly painted, but it has so much character as it is. While the…

    Santorini Padlocks

    As I explored Santorini’s towns and villages, many little details caught my eye. I am sure that many tourists just walk on by without paying them any attention, but they help give the island some of its character and charm. I would like to think…

    Santorini Lens Usage

    I wanted to conclude my Santorini blog series on a more analytical note in an effort to understand how I used the lenses that I brought with me. I brought nine lenses on the trip, although if you discount the pinhole lens (which is essentially…

    Fishy Windmills

    After last week’s post, I decided that I would do one last Santorini post to highlight the AF-S Fisheye Nikkor 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED. The picture above was admittedly the only one in my Santorini gallery images that featured the fisheye. However, there was no other…
