Photo of the Day: Dreaming in Santorini


Dream Trip 2009 is well under way! For inspiration, here's a new entry that caught our eye:

Is it possible to take a bad picture in Santorini? The Greek island, famed for its blocky white houses and blue-domed churches nestled on cliffs encircling a flooded caldera, is one of the most photogenic spots in the world. It's also a popular European cruise ship port of call.

Today's Photo of the Day, Dreaming in Santorini, doesn't show the classic church tops or any of the familiar doorways framing views of the sea. Instead, it displays a simple flat rooftop, a makeshift bed for a napping pup. The cruise ship plying the Aegean waters in the distance hints at the tourist busy-ness nearby.

"On Santorini, even the stray dogs live the good life," writes Dream Trip entrant ahenry333 about the memory of capturing the image. "Strolling through the village of Oia, I came upon this juxtaposition of dog and boat."
