For want of a nail, the shoe was lost;
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost; and
For want of a horse the rider was lost;
Being overtaken and slain by the enemy, all
For the want of care about a horseshoe nail.
- Benjamin Franklyn.

Preparation is key!

    Isabel, I had five of these alley cats following me and watching my every move! I don't know whether it was food they were after or just the company, this medieval village was deserted. Smile

    Thank you Isabel, when you have the backdrop of the caldera at Santorini, then I guess that you can't go wrong! Smile

    Hi Jenn,
    There is certainly an interesting story behind this promontory/peninsula - and it certainly gives up fantastic views of the surrounding caldera. Which reminds me to enter the relevant info! Smile

  • Windmills and Whitewashed Walls

    Thank you for your user award Sawsengee and the nice comments. I was particularly pleased in not capturing any tourists on this shot. The climate can greatly help or hinder depending on your view when trying to capture an image here on Santorini. This particular day the atmosphere produced hazy Images. Smile

  • Nice day for a white wedding.

    Thanks Eric, when you Isolate buildings it can make life easier. The trouble with Santorini is that there is too much white!!! That's especially true of built up areas such as Oia, Fira, Imerovigli and Firestefani. Smile

  • Santorini Sunrise

    Thank you Isabel, this visit to Santorini was a long overdue one. Unfortunately there was no famous Santorini sunsets available at Oia or Akrotiri's Faros lighthouse during my stay. Smile

  • Fisherman's Bastion

    Thanks Dave, I had the whole place to myself (no tourists) as I visited early in the morning at around 5 am. I got to enjoy it a whole lot better. Only trouble was that this was only taken with a smart phone camera, as my Nikon D7000 died a death a few days earlier in Venice. Smile

  • No Plaice Like Home!

    Those Murano craftsmen are very inventive and extremely gifted. If you stay away from the "gift" shops and visit the workshops direct, you get to see much more interesting pieces - the prices reflect this, but you do get what you pay for. Smile

  • Venetian Sunrise

    Thanks Alan, but I don't think that you can go far wrong when you visit Venice. The light changes at different stages of the day and throughout the seasons, giving you a great variety of possibilities.

    No wonder Turner, Monet, Manet, Singer Sargent et al congregated here, this is a truly wonderful city.

    I have a different perspective of the same view -"O' Sole Mio" taken an hour and fourteen minutes apart (later), and the contrast is noticeable.

    Smile Thank you Allan, I love Venice and keep going back to look for hidden gems, and at best try to get shots without the tourists. That usually means getting up early! Here's a direct link to other Venice stuff that people might not get to see. http://www.kam-era-man.com/gallery/venice-2016---2017-28336

  • Crete, an Island of Secrets

    Reminds me of my recent trip to Venice, there's much more to those Islands than just the Iconic places visited by the tourists.

    Good luck for the book launch, Regards, Tom Grin

  • The door in colour.

    Very Interesting Image, not the kind of thing i would expect to find in the UK, more reminiscent of our European cousins. Smile

    Thank you Sangram for your kind comment. Smile

    Venice offers so much scope for photography, and I've only just scratched the surface.

    Thanks Ron, There's such variety and good material to capture in Venice, It's just a matter of getting lucky with the light and/or lack of tourists. Smile

    I'm quite impressed Keara, keep up the good work! It just shows you, if you're old enough, you're good enough. Grin

  • Seen better days!

    Claire,

    We're lucky in this country that are museums are mostly free. I've just got back from the V&A in London, you could get lost for hours in there - Ideal for a visit on a rainy day!
