This is one of my favorite color photographs I have taken. I was living on the Greek island Santorini (Thira) for several months and I was trying to figure out how to capture or symbolize the depth of the ancient Greek soul and what “blossomed” from that soul at its peak. Well, this is what I came up with. This island is so beautiful…scene of an enormous volcanic explosion combined with the deepest blue water you will ever see so close to land. This basic yellow wild flower grows all along the caldera and they are so beautiful against the backdrop of the deep blue.
White Spark, Margo Wiessman, Absolute Winter, Snow Flake, and I am sure she has other names…re-worked my images of images on photo shop…and she did quite a job. I have offered her a job to be my lab assistant…will have to wait and see…lol…go check out her site and beautiful photographs…Margo Wiessman. Thank you Margo for playing around with these and giving them some life. Perhaps I will have to give up film and go digital…yet more reliance on technology!!!!
