Photographer's Note

A windy backstreet that typifies the village of Emporio on the island of Santorini, Greece. Emporio is the largest village on the volcanic island and dates from medieval times when the inhabitants used to build their houses side by side, so that they could protect themselves against the pirates. Hence negotiating its narrow streets and alleyways can sometimes be a bit of a tight squeeze, but also very worthwhile as it is beautifully picturesque and truly captivates the imagination.
