It’s the quick moments, an interaction in the street or a quiet morning, that inspire photographer Jessica when she travels. Here, she shares some of her favorite shots from her time exploring Greece on our tour The Greek Islands: Mykonos, Santorini & Crete.
In the village of Pyrgos, I followed the sound of music down an alleyway, only to find two musicians playing their instruments. Turns out I’d stumbled upon a wedding and these guys were setting the mood.
The Temple of Apollo at Delphi is where the legendary Oracle once revealed the future to inquiring ancient Greeks. What struck me most about it was how perfectly it’s tucked away in the mountains, hidden unless you know where to find it.
One morning I woke up at around 5:30 to do some exploring and beat the high season crowds. As I was walking through the port area, I came across this man setting up all his vegetables for the day.
Little Venice, Mykonos
I’d been hoping to catch some fishermen heading out for the morning, but because of a heat wave, nobody was fishing. All the boats were docked so nicely with Little Venice in the background that I couldn’t help but take a photo, even though it wasn’t the one I was originally looking for.
This was up at the Acropolis, across from the Parthenon. Not only are the ruins beautiful, but up here you can get some of the best views of the city and all the mountains surrounding it.
