Photographer's Note

Hi there,

This is some building I encoutered during my one day trip to Meganissi the neighbourhood island of Lefkada. It's shot in the main town of this island, Vathy
I did like the Blue & W and plant growing up the building, quite typical Greek building I thought, so I shot it. If I'm right it's some building connected to the harbour, hence the Porto - Vathy on the sign, I think.
Taken just before we went back on the ferryline, back to Nydri, Lefkada

[More info about the ferryline]
In high season a ferryline departs every day from Nydri on Lefkada, to Spartochori (port often called Spilia as it is located in Spilia Bay) and Vathy.

From Nydri it's 25 minutes to Spilia + another 20 to Vathy. From Nydri the boat departs 7 times a day, the boat anchors at Spilia 5 times & 6 times at Vathy (last boat doesn't go to Spilia).
Price : €2,00 per person (one way).

This ferryline is also maintained in low season, because the kids from Meganissi have to go to highschool on Lefkada island!!

I can recommend you to visit Meganissi if you're on Lefkada. It's a nice small island, and quite different from Lefkada! If your sick of busy Nydri, go here for a day, it will bring you peace.

Forgot to note that I did also correct the perspective (vertical + horizontal). As it seems I did not pay attention to every aspect of it, I should have rotated the shot a bit to the left I think. Also could have played with the distortion.
Thanks for pointing that out, Xalkida & sebcz.


Hope you like the shot!
