Mykonos, Greece 7














Mykonos, Greece 7

I have uploaded more street scenes in Mykonos again this morning. A few people have thanked me for sharing "sunny" photos from a warm climate because of the deep freeze that most of Canada and the northern US have been experiencing for the past week or so.

The circular disk with concentric circles, commonly seen in Turkey and Greece, are meant to ward off the "evil eye" - dirty looks that some cultures think can cause bad luck. If you would like more information about this, just do a search for evil eye on the Internet.

An older gentleman sitting alone in an outdoor café made an excellent photographic subject and I made a couple of images of him before he saw me. He was a local resident who was used to the climate because it was a hot morning and he was dressed in long pants and a long-sleeved jacket - certainly not the typical tourist garb.
