This digitzed negative was taken during the summer of 1984. The Mykonos windmills are an iconic feature of this the Greek island. The windmills are the first thing seen when coming into the harbour of Alefkandra, as they stand on a hill overlooking the area. Most of them were built by the Venetians in the 16th century. They were primarily used to mill wheat. Their use gradually declined until they ceased production in the middle of the 20th century

I like your less common way of festuring the windmills by positioning them at the end of this typically Greek alley. The white walls provide a light atmosphere that is embellisehed by the colour accents from the colourful windows.

I like this very much, it's almost like an aquarelle painting, very soft and delicate. Beautiful photo!
