So I have been back for one week now and life has just been a whirlwind of unpacking, laundry, getting settled back into “reality,” a photo shoot, culling and editing images, communicating with clients, seeing family and friends, lunches, dinners, blogging, etc. In between “life” I have been trying to go through my images from Greece…and well I’ll be honest I’m not trying to start editing them, because I still have to finish editing my Tokyo and Seoul images…haha!!! But I am trying to mentally pick out the ones that I want to edit for my future blog posts/recaps about Greece. When it comes to editing my images from my travels I really do wish I had more time in a day to get that done as well too…ack!!! I am thinking about making a calendar to “schedule” in my editing for my personal images and travels. It’s on my “to do” list!!!
Anyways, back to my topic of choice for today…Santorini and some traveling pants. Santorini has been a place that I have been longing to see!!! I LOVE the movies The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants partly because it’s cute and partly because it took place in Santorini!!! While walking around Oia, Santorini I was on the lookout for familiar sightings from the movies as well as picturesque “Greek” scenes that I could photograph. I came across this beautiful blue door. It reminded me of the door to Lena’s grandparent’s home in the movie. So of course I had to photograph the door as well as photograph myself at the door. I know DORK!!! But who knows when I’ll ever get back to Greece?!?! When I got home, I couldn’t wait to re-watch the movies and see if the door I saw in Santorini was really the door in the movie…and guess what?!?!? I am pretty sure…like 98% sure that this is the same door!!! The way the movie was shot and from certain angles, it seems to match up with my images and from what I remember of the door. So yes, people…I am going to say that THIS WAS THE DOOR used in the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!!! How fun is that?!?!
And here I am riding a donkey in Fira, Santorini (just like the movie). I was a little nervous since we got sent up the mountain with no guide!!! We were put on the donkeys with a little pat to the donkey’s behind and off we went!!! Aaaack!!! And there are no reins so I had no clue how to guide my donkey. He/she just basically went up on his/her own…good thing he/she knew where he/she was going and wasn’t a wild one!!! The last thing I wanted to do was fall off a donkey onto concrete and stone steps covered in donkey poop!!!
