Greek Islands & White Paint

4

Sunday 15 December, 2013 by Uncle Spike

There are some views from this planet that really don’t warrant any form of introduction or explanatory note. You know, those iconic images that we immediately and correctly associate with their place of origin.

And the white painted houses of the Greek Islands are no exception. In fact, they are a prime example in my mind. Just consider for a moment; if I hadn’t mentioned Greece in the title or in the text above – I’d have 50 bucks down on 9 out of 10 folk guessing correctly. Am I right?

Here are three images, each from very different islands of the Dodecanese, our closest neighbours in fact.
