Ghosts of Akrotiri

This is one of five images from around twenty in all produced in Photoshop from original photographs taken on the island of Santorini. Technically they are sketchy but given this was way back in 2001 I don’t feel to bad about it.

Santorini is an incredible place from many perspectives. Geologically it’s revealing of the planets ability to affect the best of our efforts, whilst historically it’s gives you a little faith that we can aspire to be better as a culture with a little effort. Read about the Minoans. Marvelous people! The excavations at Akrotiri are hugely interesting. This Bronze age settlement demonstrates the complex and highly developed culture that existed in the region as far back as 3000BC.

The other images in this series are on the Gallery page.
