I’ve always been in love with the colors of Greece. As many blues as you can imagine. There is a golden quality to the light that is just gorgeous. And, oh, the sunsets. Forget candlelight, ladies. Have your picture taken at sunset in Greece – talk about glow! The cross above is one that my father brought home from a trip to Athens, where he was visiting friends. I’ve had it for years, and it’s had a few homes around the house.
And this is a photo from a Taschen book I bought last year, called Greek Style. So as far as I can tell, my father was about 4 years ahead of the trend. Nice work, dad. (I have already told him that if he does go back, I want one in turquoise too!) I wish my scanner were behaving. I would love to show you some pictures of my trips to Greece. As soon as I get it all sorted out, you’ll be the first to know. I also saw a photography course for September in Greece that I would love to take … I’ll look for the link and post that one soon.
Thanks to all of you for your kind and thoughtful comments on my grandmother. Your good hearts really shine through.
