It may be touristy in the extreme, but Mykonos has successfully fashioned itself as the ultimate island destination, with an intoxicating mélange of traditional Greek island charm, sophisticated dining and shopping, chic hotels, great beaches and a well-earned party reputation. No other island attracts as many supermodels, rock stars, not-so-incognito celebrities and wannabes. In July and August, the VIP-carrying mega-yachts arrive in force and there isnt enough parking for private planes.
Its become the St Tropez of Greece, says Giannopoulos, a visitor since 1992. Psarou beach is the equivalent of the great southern French beaches. It has that same atmosphere, the same mix of rich locals and international tourists. In high season, its the place to be seen.

Heaps of fun under the sign of the cross! That's the way I like it.
A very playful picture. The bl/w means you'll have to give up that typical Greek blue/white pattern, but it IS the way to go with this one, as it really brings out that lovely shadow play.
Good post, thanks for sharing it. I also like the personal touch in your note (even though, re-reading it now, my conclusion is that Mykonos is defintely not the kind of place I'd want to travel to).

Sıcak bir Temmuz ayının öğlen güneşinde, kilise duvarına yansıyan gölgelerle birlikte sıradışı ve biraz da gizemli bir Ege karesi olmuş. Tebrikler.

Hello Korkut. A moment is enough to know that you are the photographer. Shadows are sometimes more significant than the reality. Abstract shadows and focus the facts. My compliments for this little masterpiece. Rgdfs, Wolfgang.

ulaşılması güç görünen klisenin soğuk,yüksek duvarlarına vuran hayat dolu gölgeler çok şey anlatıyorlar gibi.bu güzel kareyi bu zamana kadar saklamışsın yani..arşivinde ne kıymetler var kimbilir..

Hello Korkut! Merhaba!It's a scene from the island of love, White and silhouettes combine the note! I think gives nostagia;

Excellent contrast between the church and the shadows, I also like the progression of three crosses ;)

love the shadows surrounding the unusually small door underneath the series of crosses.
Black and white keeps it mysterious yet still playful.
Where does that door lead to?
