So a friend of mine sends me this last night. It’s one of those job ads that you casually glance at, not really taking it seriously because you’ve already spent all day doing that. Again. Then my eyes focused. I saw the word “Santorini”. Surely it’s a misprint. Refocus and look again. Jesus-tap-dancing-Christ it’s THE Santorini. Likely to be the most breathtaking island I will ever see, it’s a travel photography job. Unfortunate that it’s in Greece, which was horrendously expensive the two times I went, and that was before the shit hit the fan. I ate a lot of salad.
Still, if I had the airfare and a shack to stay in, I would easily falsify a resume and scramble to borrow a real camera. There’s something to be said for living at the top of a volcanic island that could still blow us all to kingdom come at any minute…
This is by a friend of mine and was painted after we returned from a group trip to the Greek islands. Santorini was our last stop before heading back to Athens. Interestingly enough, the ship we were on, Louis Cruise’s “Sea Diamond”, would sink here on approach 7 months later, and 1 month before I went back solo. It got to close to some of the volcanic rock underwater, then made things worse by backing up.

I had to throw this in, it’s my best picture from Mykonos that I turned into a 16″x24″ photo-canvas. It was taken in town (Chora) on a pier that went straight back towards land. This is the original pic, no Photoshop was used, the sky really is that blue and the water really is that blue-green.
And no, I was not a happy camper when I had to leave. Both times. I believe tears were involved. 🙂
