Lovely photos of Mykonos Island, Greece, captured by photographer, Vickie Abby.

 

Charming stone-paved alleys, pale blue and soft pink, mellow afternoon sunshine and soft shadows . . . , I don't know what exactly but there is something in her photographs that capture my heart.

It makes me smile just to imagine strolling around these polka-dot-like stone paved narrow alleys between white washed houses, stopping by here and there to grab a coffee and crepes.

Pale blue is one of my favorite colors, but it's not just because of that. Every composition framed through her finder makes my heart sing.
