It does not get much more Greek than this! A taverna along the Mykonos town waterfront with a glimpse of 'Little Venice' at far right. On the distant horizon is the big cruise boat terminal beyond Little Venice.

The typical and beautiful white & blue for all these houses with between the taverna and Little Venice a wonderful green coloured sea.
Surprisingly not crowded in full summer.
The seagull is placed ideally in the sky.
Best regards, Paul

hello Chris, Typical Greeek view (although I haven't been in Greece). Everything whate and blue, nice this white pattern on the road. Sleepy atmosphere, probably siesta time. Even sitting Greek Zorba has white and blue stripes.

A nice place to have a holiday. The distance from the town to the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the deails and the colours of the restaurant. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. have a nice day.

Un endroit très attrayant pour se reposer tout en admirant la belle couleur de l'eau. Beau contraste des couleurs. Bien fait.

Une jolie scène qui "respire" la Grèce tant par les couleurs que par l'atmosphère ambiante.

your note says it all really. One of my favourite little towns and one of the things I like to do whilst there - sit, contemplate, drink and of course eat. Love this reminder of Greek summer days. Excellent!
Have a good week - B.

Nice capture from this nice Greek island.
We had been there for the wedding party of the daughter of a friend last summer. They said, a party there including flight costs is cheaper than anywehere in İstanbul !
Most probably you've made this capture in early morning hours as those places are full with guests in late afternoon hours !
TFS and best regards

Time for a Greek salad and a bottle of Demestica! Good point of view complemented by excellent colour contrasts and clarity.

Good evening Chris,
Beautiful seascape and part of "Little-Venezia" on the knwon island, I remember you previous photo from the same place, yet here you added the "Zorba" tavern, named after the famous character, almost a myth in Greece.
White colkor glow under the superb daylight - well done.

You captured well the Greek ambiance with typical colors like blue tables, lot of sun and turquose sea
Good place to seat and enjoy the wiew

this is such a typical Greek landscape! All the white and blue colors mixed together make this specific atmosphere which can be found on the islands. I like how the buildings in the distance correspond with the Zorba's Taverna and how the sea changes its color towards horizon.
Great colors and light management.
Thanks for sharing

the famous Mykonos.
Not sure if i"ll be able to get to here on my travels, we have alot of places to see - so that means some will have to wait for another future trip.
Little Venice sure looks attractive, and it seems as if the ocean waves are often strong here..yes?
gotta love the blue seats and table tops too.
classic Greece all the way.
excellent color and exposure.

Le charme des iles grecques bien présenter ici, un endroit apaisant, la terrasse bleu et blanc bien située près de la mer, sublime beauté des couleurs

there must be many places in Greece that have a "Zorba" taverna at a central spot or by the seaside. The "Zorba" of Leros is in fishing village Pandeli and looks more discreet than this bright and eye-catching restaurant of Mykonos. Your picture has a lovely perspective and, apart from a clear description of the taverna, offers us a fine view to one of the most well known parts of the island. The cars are a little disturbing but the seagull makes a very fine detail. The light has a fantastic clarity and the colours are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Hi Chris, great view of this interesting scene of daily life in this beautiful place, well composed and captured by a great pov, with good and interesting photograph. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good morning and happy Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

I was going to jump to your Moroccan photo but I decided to go in order since Greek Islands are pleasant sights, too. It looks like the Aegean was a bit choppy on the day you took this photo. I like your POV, with the sea visible at the end of the street. The taverna provides a nice frame for the little bay.
We had snow again last night. I am sure, as windy as this photo looks, the weather was much finer than what we are experiencing here.
