The Architecture of the Arch
the epitome of the architecture of the arch
Deftly hanging from the rock face
Or lapping at the Aegean ….
…. often interrupting and softening
…. and challenging the view!
It demands attention
…. creates drama
…. framing from within
and framing from without!
The architecture of the arch ….
…. forms simple lines
…. joyfully plays with light and shade
… and is visually,
such a pleasure!

Yes, a wonderful island indeed. Great images.
How delightful and pretty!Arches and curves add so much charm to architecture! And here , they become a symbol of the place , as you know where you are as soon as you see the pictures.
Tank you for that beautyful stroll!
Oh, your posts make me 'homesick' for Greece. You've captured the arches so well in this post! xJ
You always talk about the light in Greece, and now I see!!
How beautiful and cheering! The first shot is amazing. Reminds me a little of Matera in southern Italy but without the sea. Lovely accompanying words too xcat
fabulous images and I see why the arch fascinates us, we had a vaulted ceiling at Borga Nari and I couldn't imagine how the owners made such a thing. See you in a few days, can't wait! ciao lisa x
