in response to wordpress photo challenge Focus
Here’s a Pic of A Greek Chapel, in Crete taken during a recent family holiday.
I played around with the depth of field in this shot – concentrating the focus on the chapel and the bench outside.
Being a chapel – I couldn’t take a shot of the inside. So i concentrated on the area around it!
Camera used was my Trusty Digital Stills Camera from Sony, additional tweaks to the Depth of field was done using Adobe photoshop elements.
And for those who wanted to see the original pic of the chapel – here it is….
During the sackings of Rome and Greece
The builders fled the construction site
Leaving the temple and markets to birds
As angry protesters had their words
The wreckage that built up was left in the sand
till one day a man from museum had plans
to recover the buildings located by sea
and learn of the heritage of the site for free
Daily post prompt – Island
No man is an Island – that’s how the tale goes
But for one hour, around sunrise on Alykanas Beach, I truly was at home on this little Greek island – Zakynthos
We’d gone there on a family holiday. The plane had landed late that night, so I let Mum and Dad and the rest of our party have an extended nap in the family apartment.
There was no one there – just me, the sea and an occasional sea bird.
The rock I was sat on, led directly to the path of the apartment.
So as the waves lapped against the shore, I saw the morning sky turn from dark into light.
And upon taking the picture below, I popped my toes into the coolness of the Mediterranean sea.
Warm blue skies in a Zakynthian Sky,
white fluffy clouds go passing by
floating away like waves in the breeze
which lap up slowly, hitting your knees
Golden sand meets with the blue of the sea
Oranges hang high in a Greek orchards tree
Little fish swim in the sea round your feet
Nipping your toes for a little treat
Music is played by a traditional band,
as you bury your toes deep down in the sand
and solar rays turn worshippers from white into brown
Just in time for their night on the town
