Photographer's Note

Mykonos is one of the most famous tourist destination of Greece, if not of the entire world. Well known for its crazy nights, wild parties that last till next noon, but everything starts with a lovely dinner at one of the many nice (and very expensive) restaurants of the island. Mykonos is so famous that many people (especially in the States) still think that Greece is some country close to Mykonos.

Till last week I had never been there, because I hate all this "circus" of celebrities, "rich and famous", fashion victims and paparazzi thing, and most of all I hate crowded places. I must admit, though, that Mykonos deserves much of its glamour and fame, because Hora, the capital of the island is one of the most beautiful villages of the Aegean, with the traditional architecture of Kyklades prevailing everywhere with almost no signs of the modern concrete monsters seen in other places in Greece. You can also find many excellent beaches, although most of them are "packed" and some wild, arid landscapes in the inland.

***This is the first photo that I upload taken with my new camera, a Canon EOS 30D. I hope that this will be a good start.
