This particular shrine stands next to the ferry port on the breakwater in Samos-Vathy and I liked the simplicity of the blue and white.
Outsiders assume, sometimes rightly, that the shrine is built to act as a remembrance for a traffic accident victim. This is true in some cases, but they are often built by a survivor of a potentially tragic accident, or to publicly thank a saint for a benefit, not commemorate a tragedy. One of the most reliably tended is said to mark the death of a tour bus driver. It stands in front of the entrance to the busy archaeological site of Delphi, where distracted tourists sometimes bump into it. But this constant buzz of activity has its benefits, too. If the candle goes out it is usually only for a few moments - the first driver who notices will go to the shrine, stand a moment in prayer, and light a fresh candle.
