White Wall And Steps by phil decocco


Small (23.2" x 15.5")

Available to buy on…

On Santorini Island in the Aegean, most things are painted in some combination of colors. However, these steps adjacent to a small church in Oia decided to drape the entrance all in white, creating an interesting set of lines and shapes. These rebuilt after the earthquake in 1956.



Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
