Dreamy Pastel Palette of Oia

from 95.00

Oia, Santoriniy - Greece

That is just how you pronounce Oia (Ee-ah) in Santorini, the most iconic and touristy spot where the white and pasterly blue dome heaven is located. It's not surprising for Santorini to have over 2 million tourist visiting that tiny island each year as Santorini is on nearly everyone’s bucket list including mine.

Creating a photographic artwork on one of the most captured iconic spot in Europe is certainly a challenge. I needed to stay true to my aesthetic with a sense of space, illuminating natural light with a dream worthy vision.

With so many selfie sticks pointing everywhere from the tourists, it felt like an international fencing competition at a market during peak hours. From couples having their pre-wedding session to groups of tourist patiently waiting in line for the best view of Oia, I was certainly one of them.


But I have decided to move on and try to get a better vantage point to frame my shot , so glad to have found it after a few minutes of wondering around. I just needed more patience, as tourists are walking in and out of my frame and occasionally pausing for their photos before I could capturing my image.

This is a little dreamy piece of Atlantis.
