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.

Santorini Kamari

During my  trip to to Santorini I was one day in Kamari. It is a tourist destination on the south east coast consisting only of hotels and restaurants. There is no old town or similar. But there is a long beach with black pebbles of volcanic stone. A little off there is also a quiet place without bars and parasols. Kamari is at the airport so the planes fly low over near kamari.

The water quality is not as good and the stony beach is not comfortable to stay for longer. The mountain Profitis separates the south of Kamari and Perissa is nice to look at. Overall, a place for people who like bars and beach and for those who don’t want to pay the extreme prices in Thira and Oia.

All pictures were made by a Leica M 240 and the Summilux 35 FLE and the Noctilux.
