In the Republic of Georgia, on a steep hillside above the river Mtkvari, is Tbilisi’s a characterful old town. In a warren of dead-end streets are grand and graceful houses built in the Art-Nouveau style. These buildings are in a poor state of repair. These forlorn and neglected exteriors hint at the grandeur of a time gone by.
When I was in Santorini I had one day with crystal clear skies. I put a polarizer on the front of my lens and shot the buildings and churches in the harsh midday light, which results in almost a posterized look. I know this is not an original approach and it’s been done a thousand times before. But I enjoyed seeing and capturing the beauty of Santorini this way. So here is my kick at the can.
