Violet...I have three words for your three photographs. Beautiful, breathtaking, professional.

Keep up the great work. Your trip must have been wonderful. I, for one, would love it if Uncle Lance would share more of your work with us.

By the way, as a fellow Harry Potter fan, I really enjoy reading all your HP comments. Very insightful.

You're so mature and talented. Your family must be so proud of you! :)


Beautiful photographs! I particularly like this one... the way the positive and negative space seems flexible. Very interesting shot. It pulls you in.

This photo and, was it... the first one? Actually all 3 from a villiage called Oia on the island of Santorini. (This and the first just show the building structure and typical characteristic, traditional arcetecture.) It's really very pretty. The "tour bus" that we rode on took us up to one of the higher-altitude places, (and i assume probably main shopping area, as the other visable buildings looked like houses) in Oia. There was a sort of stone wall thing that you could stand next to/behind (it was there to, i assume, keep you from falling down the side of the island...) and look out at the ocean and a few of the other islands. The view was pretty in itself, but if you looked to the right or left, you saw all the houses built onto the side almost. The first photo is better to show that. This one i took by looking down at one of them and zooming in a bit. Santorini was very beautiful, though i liked Venice, Italy as well.


Violet, thanks for the picture descriptions. Was the trip as wonderful as it appears to have been?

Violet Mannion

Yes, definately. lol. It was particularily wonderful for my first time out of the country at all. lol.

This one is my favorite of the three, too. I wish I was there, right now.


That's a wonderful framing of the shadows and light. Well done!
