Photographer's Note

in the narrow roads of Plaka, the capital of the island of Milos,during the blue hour.

Have a great Weekend.

Plaka,the capital

Plaka,is the capital of the island.It began to develop dramatically after the destruction of Ancient Hora when Castro was no longer able to accommodate the increasing numbers of refugees within its walls.

The village, so called because of the flat land on which it was built, is notable for its island architecture, mild climate and wonderful views of the Gulf of Milos.Walking along the narrow back streets between neat white-washed courtyards and balconies festooned with flowers, we are filled with feelings of familiarity and warmth.

In this traditional village, are most of the civil service offices and the folk and archaeological museums - custodians of cultural heritage from the distant to the more recent past. Also, the churches which, by their very existence, remind us of the history of this volcanic hill from the time of its first settlement until today.

Used a Monopod and an ISO 640,without flash
