Ria by foukou Ria by foukou
A photograph from the same place I stood and took "Ixalt" and "Illunima." This is the village of Ia, or at least a part of it. Located on the island of Santorini in the Cyclades of Greece.

The village is perched on a hill, built on a cliff which at one point is just a sheer drop down into the Aegean sea, into the caldera of Santorini. This photo is just a glimpse of what there is to be seen, but definately an accurate portrayal.

Ria is the title, for the name of the village is Ia and this is a photograph that is Real and looks what it would look like in reality. Fia, on the other hand, is a derivation from this photograph with some drastic modifications to the appearance.

Wow this is such an awesome shot. It almost looks like it could be a painting, or that type of style.
I wish I could visit a place like that sometime soon.

Beautiful. Santorini is really wonderful. I went there when I was younger, so I wasn't into photography then, but I'd really like to go back. I remember exploring all the narrow, confusing streets, and all the cats that were everywhere! :)

This photo and scene are truly amazing. The clarity, bright light, and color are like nothing I have ever seen in my life. It feels like a fantasy but from the gritty real details, I can see that it is not.

What a jumble of architechture! I can't get over the thought that these people must go through sooooo much paint, because despite the few flaking areas on the closer buildings, everything looks as though it's been freshly painted. Everythings all happy and coordinated in a chaotic sort of way. Neat place. :)
