Santorini – Almost Heaven: The Barriers in Oia

Similar to Hora in Mykonos, the village of Oia in Santorini is full of small gates and doors. These are very interesting subjects for photography, as they reflect very much the culture and living in this small village on an island.


The arch door leading to the space hewn into the volcanic rock.


A little gate leading the way down the steep cliff.


A blue gate to the private premises.


A brown gate to a hotel.


An iron gate with floral motifs.


The X-men's residence.


A gate with a view.


Uninvited.


Diamonds are forever.


The archway of the believers.


It's the first day of a new year, 2008. I would like to wish everybody a very happy year ahead.
