Walking through narrow streets of the city (Chora) of Mykonos, reach the famous church of Paraportiani.
Just behind the church, i found this man, working on the chairs you see there.
Infos about the church from www.cyclades-orbit.com
The church dates back to the middle of the 15th century A.D. The name comes from the word "Porta" = Door, as it was build right next to the entrance of the Medieval castle in Chora, which unfortunately has been completely destroyed.
Building of great Architectural value, it consists of 4 ground floor temples and one of the first floor, which is the main church. The churches around it (Aghios Sozontas, Aghii Anargyri, Aghia Anastasia, and Aghios Efstathios) comprise the whole of the church of Paraportiani

The low angle really makes the shot stand out. The colors are fantastic and the composition is varied with plenty of elements to look at. Good choice to include the building on the left which ensures that this part isn't empty and also provides the shot with a nice natural frame in that part.

Πανέμορφα χρώματα και πολύ καλή χρήση του φωτός. Εξαιρετική ευκρίνεια (φαίνονται λεπτομέρειες στο εκκλησάκι πίσω)και πολύ καλό κάδρο. Άντε να ρθει κι αυτό το καλοκαίρι να πάρουμε τα επάνω μας...

Geia sou Chris
Beautiful photo, I like your low POV and the great deal of the clear blue sky. Nice daily life capture with the man working on chairs..The photo is so Greek, because of the recognisable architecture and dominating blue and white (I just wish you avoided the red rucksack). WS photo is great too!
Have a nice day,
