Focus On Life - 9/52 - Knock Knock


This week Sally Russick's prompt for the Focus On Life Photography Series is Knock Knock.  Photos of doors.  In or out.  What's on the other side?  My photo is from Santorini, Greece.  I was there years ago (and by years I mean probably almost 8).  I don't travel as much anymore but I have fond memories of my travels.  I went to Greece with an ex-boyfriend for business (he was an invited speaker at a conference) and before we went to the conference we decided to visit Santorini for a couple of days.  This was the door at the top of the steps that went down to the hotel we were staying in.  At the top of the photo you can see the caldera - a caldera is a sunken volcano that has filled in with water.  Imagine sitting outside on the patio chairs watching the sunset from right here!!!!!  Head on over to Sally's blog to see everyone else's doors!

Reminds me of our trip a few years ago! There aren't many places that have as beautiful a view or photos to be taken!
