Greek church in the island of Tinos Greece, shining under the early afternoon sun. All churches in the Aegean sea islands are traditionally white. This particular one was painted to get ready for the celebrations of the Virgin Mar, which is on August the 15th. Asbestos and water is what normally is used for painting, and this is a tradition of thousands of years in Greek islands. I have framed part of the church, to show this particular stairs shape, which in fact is used to support the bell towel.
