Greece

Greece, the birthplace of western civilization. Below you will find some of my favorite images. Some are historical, some beautiful, and some just colorful. In my photographic library I have many more wonderful shots of the white houses and the blue seas the Greek flag reflects. There are indeed many, many picturesque doors there. Enjoy!
