Amorgos Chora

Amorgos is a quiet and very nice island with the capital (chora) in the mountains. It’s a small village with typical while houses in small alleys and some very nice cafe’s and restaurants.

Street photography in Santorini Thira

Santorini is one of the most popular islands in Greece. Especially for U.S. americans and Asians, this island seems to be mandatory.
The view into the caldera is really fascinating. Unfortunately, the island is totally in the hand of tourism. The main town Thira is more like a shopping center than a typical Greek place.

I had the opportunity to spend two days on Santorini, including a day in Thira. Since this island has already been photographed entirely by catalog photographer, it makes no sense to make more romantic Caldera photos. Instead, it was a good chance to walk around and to make some street photos.

All pictures were taken with the Leica M with the Summilux 35 FLE and the Tri-Elmar 16mm.


Chalkio and Apeiranthos at Naxos

Chalkio (Chalki) is a small village on Naxos, it’s about 5 km before Filoti. Only 500 people live here. There are many olive plantations in the surrounding area. From Chalkio starts many wonderfull trails.
From the fire station turn left into the small street. At the end is a small place from where you can start going to the village Moni in the mountains. 10 km away from Chalkio is Apeiranthos, a nice mountain village with a view to the biggest mointain Zas.

The monastery Chozoviotissa Amorgos

The monastery Chozoviotissa is the most popular and impressive place on Amorgos. It’s well known by the movie ‚The Deep Blue‘ by Luc Besson.
The start sequence is a fly over the sea directly to the monastery which is build in the cliff. Some other szenes of this movie were made on Amorgos, and so this movie gave the tourism a little push.
The monastery was build in the 9th centry and there still live monks. You can visit the monastery every day but don’t forget long pants.
