Santorini Sunset - Dinner on the Caldera Edge

I came across this scene while on my way into town on Santorini one evening near sunset. I was on a mission to secure cat food for this cat, and stopped along the way to grab some shots of anything interesting I could find. (With camera in hand, even running a mundane errand can be interesting.)

What's interesting to me about this image is the visual suggestion that the restaurant is literally hanging over the edge of the Santorini caldera, and the repetition of lines in the middle and background of the photo. And of course, the two young women totally engaged in their conversation, seemingly not very interested in the incredible sunset about to occur across the water.

To say I am not jealous of the captured moment at this fabulous island, would be a grandiose lie. An excellent photo!

Yannis, thanks for your nice compliment! You have a wonderful website and photo portfolio. Someday when I get back to Athens, perhaps we can meet up to say hello in person.
